Yoobee Son is a 24-year-old South Korean Womenswear graduate.
Yoobee's final collection is titled “The In-between” in which she has managed to produce 5 looks during the lockdown. “The initial idea started out with the fact that I see my self as a game character which is glitching in certain instances”. Her collection is an analysis of a life divided between continents and cultures and her being in the middle. She explores ideas of belonging and the element of the glitch is shown in her hand moulded pieces appear as futuristic body sculpture. She merges these more harsh shapes with soft materials such as PVC foam pad with drape and flow which suggests the body in movement.
Yoobee took inspiration from Surrealist painters as she was inspired by the new world they have created with their paintings. The idea of being in between was transformed into Yoobee creating her own space. She created her own virtual world and body form using a 3d computer program. After graduating she aims to continue work on her graduation collection.
