The November issue of Junior Magazine includes a wonderful piece by Helen McKay-Ferguson on the "current trend for all things Eastern". The article focuses particularly on the influence of Japanese aesthetic on current fashion collections and it features Aravore's designer (and "self-confessed Japanophile") Yanina Aubrey who for the AW11 collection "takes its cue from the kimono, with dresses adorned with wide obi-like sashes."
In the article, Yanina explains that she's attracted to the concept of wabi-sabi
which "..entails an appreciation of subtlety, an austere refinement, a passion for craftsmanship of the highest level, but also an appreciation of the beauty of the imperfect from something that is handmade."
