Chinese-Canadian designer specialising in womenswear, Yvonne Lin holds
an MA in design from the Royal College of Art and a BA in womenswear from
Central Saint Martins in London.
Theatre, performance, body – they constantly inspire and nourish
Lin’s design. She sees design as a form of expression, and seeks to translate
visuals into the whole gamut of emotions. Her practice is one of visual
language, which transcends disciplinary boundaries, and encompasses accessories,
footwear, installation, stills and film towards the ultimate visual objective.
Lin’s design fuses classism with modernity, captures strength and
sensitivity in equal parts, in celebration of the intriguing mix of fragility
and toughness within a body.
A combination of flat pattern cutting and draping are woven
throughout each collection, with a measured study of proportion and a focus on
details that invite the audience to look up close.
