New York City – Blancore is a New York City-based contemporary brand which made its New York Fashion Week debut this season with a collection inspired by water. “Water can be ubiquitous and ethereal, vanishing without a trace,” Yalan, Creative Director of Blancore, explained. “When becoming mist and cloud, it says: you can reach me, but do not dominate me. When becoming a drop of rain or a vast ocean, it says: you can feel me, but do not define me. When becoming snow and frost, it says: I have more forms beyond your imagination.”
The show opened with three performers in white bodysuits dancing to a mystifying melody. Lighting effects formed a rippling blue pool in the center of the runway. Blancore believes water represents the existence of every creature, infusing everything in every realm with energy.
Yalan was born to a creative family and grew up in the fashion industry. However, as a child, she dreamt of creating her own brand, instead of running the family business as an adult. A passion for the arts drove the designer to move to the United States to pursue this dream. After graduating from Ohio State University, Yalan combined American style and minimalism with elegant French “deconstruction.”
About their debut in NYFW, Youting, CMO of Blancore, stated: “We chose New York Fashion Week for our debut not only because Blancore was born here, but also because New York is unique in many ways—especially in the way that it embraces all colors of people and all walks of lives in its arms.” -GM
