Her creations have been praised for their delicate, feminine and organic qualities.
There is a dual sentiment expressed in her work: structure and fluidity –
effortless movement unencumbered by form achieved in the
lightness of the clothing.
For PFW 2013, Ms. Yin presented a collection, which further
expressed her design vision and also reflected
an ethereal beauty reminiscent of female mythological images

by Sandro Botticelli
The Three Graces, which are depicted to the left of the painting
are goddesses of such things as beauty, joy, creativity and elegance –
certainly appropriate descriptions for
Ms. Yin’s a/w couture collection.
