With her stunning collection that focused on the elements of our earth - aptly titled Six Elements - Amy Yuen captured the attention of a huge crowd gathered at the Art of Fashion RAW competition on September 29. After all of the online votes were tallied, Amy and her outstanding collection were crowned the People's Choice winner for 2012!
It is easy to see why this collection inspired and moved so many people. Each design captured what makes our earth so unique and special, from water to fire, wood to metal. The clean lines and structures of her designs made way for an unexpected, body-conscious femininity.
Amy utilized a variety of fabrics to explore the concept of raw. One dress features a metallic overlay with a wool base to capture the effect that energy has on our world, while another joins linen with gross grain tape for a perfectly flawed effect.
