YiQing Yin (1985)

The Chinese-born French designer first wanted to become a sculptor when she became enthralled by the power of textile while studying at the Arts Décoratifs, in Paris. She rapidly developed her signature style that reinvents the shaping of the material and creates anthropomorphic feminine silhouettes that sometimes give the impression to be the prisoners of a spiderweb, the cocoon of a butterfly or emerge from the dramatic mysteries of the deep ocean. Her strange and poetic women seem the result of a mad scientist’s experiments but also clearly evoke the architectural manner of designers such as Madeline Vionnet or Azzedine Alaia. Yiqing Yin found herself under the spotlights when she designed Audrey Tautou’s fantasy dress for the 2013 Cannes Festival and has since been chosen to become the new creative director of the historical French brand, Leonard, that she gently revives with dynamic and light silhouettes as for the fashion designer, her passion ‘is not fashion, but the material. The garment is a means of expression. The body is a support.’
