Only few designers get a guest-membership at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. French-Chinese couturier Yiqing Yin is one of them. See her latest collections.

In the world of couture it is almost impossible to reinvent the wheel. There is nothing anybody has not seen before. But Beijing-born and Paris-based young designer Yiqing Yin has captivated the attention of the fashion professionals. She uses exclusive fabrics with subtle textures like silk, chiffon or organza, and creates feminine yet organic shapes.

Yiquing Yin works more like a sculptor than a designer: She doesn’t draw, but always starts with a fabric draping it around a mannequin. For Yin the empty mannequin is like a white page.

At the tender age of 27 Yiquing Yin looks back at a successful fashion career: After graduating at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs, she presented her first collection at the Hyères International Festival in 2010. She won the Andam fashion award, and since 2012 she is guest-member at the prestigious Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Therefore her poetic collections can be seen on the Haute Couture runway (see video below) during Paris Fashion Week. In January the French-Chinese couturier has been named creative director by French fashion house Léonard.
