    Yvette Yang: Fashion-Font S/S Tweed

Designer Yvette Yang creates a typeface using the trends to emerge from every bi-annual fashion season

Posted by Rob Alderson,

How the jiggery did we not know about this super project from Paris-based Korean designer Yvette Yang which has been going for SIX years now. For every season since 2007 Yvette has produced a Fashion-Font which turns the trends of that particular set of collections into a typeface. The hand-made results are fascinating, reflecting the whims of our sartorial overlords in a quirky, communicative and novel way.

She has also produced a set of images spelling out individual trends like “two-tone shoes” and “little black dresses” as well as some brand-specific pieces. With concept and form coming together so beautifully, truly Yvette is exploring the vernacular of the fashion world.

You can enjoy each letter up close and personal on Yvette’s new website.
