Yifang Wan debuted her Spring/Summer 2014 collection on Friday at London Fashion Week. Having been awarded the Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Merit Award for the autumn/winter 2013-14 season, it seems that Yifang Wan’s popularity in the fashion world is ever growing. Yifang is a Central Saint Martins MA graduate, who won the Loreal Professional Young Designer Award in 2010.

She is renowned for her clean clines and structural aesthetic, which has echoes of martial arts and sculpture. There was a strong element of sculptural minimalism, which appears to be a signature style of Yifang Wan. The designs were modern and to a certain extent, futuristic, while retaining Asian influences.

The models were willowy with the nudest of make-up, each with flowing hair. Simple colours were used; white, gun metal grey, black cashmere and shimmering emerald green. The styles ranged from asymmetrical dresses and tunics, to blazers with varying quality fabrics being draped over one another to create a layering effect. There were no accessories, apart from the few models who had sunglasses made from the same material as the clothes - this provided an quirky effect to the collection.

Yifang Wan has successfully encapsulated simplicity with careful attention to cut, constrcution and colour. By avoiding the use of accessories, the focus was only on the clothes - there were no distractions visible, not even the models. The uncomplicated manner of the pieces are something I imagine will be replicated on the high street in months to come.
