Episode Summary

THE SHAPE OF SOUND Like clothing, sound surrounds us. Frequently inspired by the built environment in her design process, Yeohlee takes it into the invisible sonic dimension for Spring 2010. The inspiration began with tropical birds and their colorful plumage, evolved into the construction of their nests, which then led to bird calls and birdsongs. Sound is envisioned as waves that rustle over the bodice of Look 13 --- in a stripe embroidery fabric suggestive of a musical score --- and cascade down the front & back in Look 8. Interlocking sound wave patterns weave a jersey nest around the shoulders in Look 19. The repetition of these geometric elements creates a resounding rhythm of shapes, fabricated in materials with acoustic textures. Waves are constructed in a white bubble cotton that pops, Looks 1, 2 & 7; when cut and woven in a metallic brass matelass--, they expose the fabric---s soft, white cotton interior, linking the contrasting surfaces in melodic duality, Looks 18 & 20. There is a burst of color in the cacophony of ruffles and dancing dots of the bird dress, Look 9. Crisp cottons play in vivid hues of fuchsia, green, and buttercup. Musical notes crescendo in bold waves & bars in Look 21 ---a complex composition of form, texture, and movement.moreless
