Chinese fashion designer, Lan Yu, debuted her Fall line at the Skylight Clarkson Square. Each look consisted of soft pastel colors and looks ranged from a soothing color palette of made up of sky tones, hues of mint and jade, powder pinks and ivory to a darker palette consisting of a deeper greens, black and gold. Most of the looks were styled over delicate lingerie pieces. Throughout her collection, I noticed a balance of silk, lace, tulle, and velvet infused between each of her designs to create elegant, feminine silhouettes.
