Fetishism in Fashion
Exhibition

In 2013, the Fashion Biennale of Arhnem gathered many artists around the topic of « Fetishism in Fashion ».
Lidewij Edelkoort, curator of the exhibition, invited more than 300 modern designers to present their work and to reinterpret the original vision of fetishism. Yiqing Yin exhibited for this occasion NUDE et ZEUS dresses.

The new interpretation of fetishist codes discloses the symbolic, intimate and somehow superstitious relation we keep with clothes and accessories. NUDE’s sensuality and transparency highlight the ambivalence of an undressing dress. Yet, thanks to the pleats forming a mythological face, ZEUS dress reveals the captivating dimension of a garment uniting human to divine condition.
« Fetishism in Fashion » allowed Yiqing Yin to point out a paradoxical approach of her own. Her clothes attest a proud modesty, turning the garment into soft and covering armor. Yet, they present the carnal dimension of free strength and grace revealing the body and catching the eye.
