The Sound of Silence: Cloth of Stillness Spring 2013

In the middle of a hectic fashion week, designer Kien Chu asked viewers of his Cloth of Stillness presentation to take a moment to meditate.  Chu, who drew his diverse pool of models from his group of friends and from his mediation class, chose to present his clothes on people of all genders, races, ages, and body types, which emphasized the universality of his timeless, draping unisex collection.  While Cloth of Stillness is highly informed by the healing arts of yoga and meditation, the clothes are far from Lululemon style exercise wear.  Instead, the collection explores the use of fabric to incorporate stillness and meditative moments into quotidian life, and is nice reminder that fashion can still be thoughtful and compassionate.
