“Tessuti come lino, organza e seta sono tagliati in forme e pannelli geometrici ma nella costruzione dell’outfit mantengono comunque totale libertà di movimento.” – Barbara Sini, Vogue Italia
“And since one can always count on YEOHLEE for terrific raincoats, this season she showed a misty blue polyurethane trench jacket perfect for those overcast days by the sea.” – Bobbi Queen, Senior Fashion Editor, WWD
“Yeohlee is a rarity; she practices what she preaches: the clothing she designs and sells is made in NYC and she located her shop and studio, in the heart of the garment district” – Jo Reed interviewing Yeohlee in the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) podcast.
