Yolanda Ng - spring/summer 2002

Graduating from Ryerson Polytechnic University three months ago, Yolanda Ng burst onto the scene with a fierce, standout show at Toronto Fashion Week. Her debut collection exudes a rocking, raw sexuality that Ng says “is about being proud of one’s body.” The body is given front and centre stage in Ng’s pieces, with laser cut-outs and ventilation features acting as punchy gateways between inner and outer ’space’. The pentagon perforated smoke blue leather skirt and quilted denim bustier is sure to bring the rockstar out of anyone. The prevailing punk attitude is no accident. “I think all women’s clothes need to have an edge.”

Vidal Sassoon did a brilliant job in re-inventing a 1920’s hairstyle for the show.
