READ / The great Yeohlee Teng

One of the main reasons why I chose the way of minimalism is the foreseeable environmental and inner crisis that over consumption could do. In my little way, having less purchased consumption in clothing , I am taking a step in being an eco-individual. One book I enjoyed reading this summer is the works of the designer YEOHLEE TENG. A Malaysian-born designer based in NYC , she's been an advocate on sustainable and eco-fashion. She has devised ways and designs thru her superb craftsmanship on  how lessening scraps and using them has heavily shaped her aesthetics. I find her philosophy very sensible too. I love her works so much. Her designs delve on ease, purity and minimalism. She has presented her collections in the early 90's to the early 2000's. I was so surprised to see how during those times, she has already used PVC and hi-tech fabrics. Here are some of her works:
