Yuming Weng~Academy of Art University

My second pick from Academy of Art University is Yuming Weng who hails from China. She does not have any background in working with any named designers so it seems the natural talent is just there within her.

The inspiration for her collection by Henrietta Harris' soft distorted portraits, now I don't know of her inspiration but her choice of color and the use of "ripple-cut" and boiled wool impressed me greatly. Yuming knows how to structure garments which creates lines and proportions seen by other more established designers. As well the limited color choice of silver, stone and pewter shows a color direction which worked well for her.
