Yeohlee Teng

Yeohlee Teng’s strong and consistent approach to clothing design portrays seasonless efficiency, striking geometry and concise functionalism. Teng designs for the “urban nomad,” a postmodern consumer who demands adaptable and low maintenance clothing that appears deceptively simple but makes a powerful impression. The inspiration for Teng’s simple, clean and functional clothing came from studying the clothes of people traveling through Kansai International Airport, Osaka Bay, and from investigating how fashion relates and contrasts with architecture. Yeohlee’s designs have attracted the attention of many museum and gallery curators. Her work has been featured in solo shows at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, and her clothing is in the permanent collection of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
