Chelsey Carter and Yolanda have been friends for almost a decade, when Yo realized Chelsey's latest collection was going to be complete around the same time YO:U was approaching our 1 year anniversary in business, it seemed perfect to feature Chelsey as the artist of the month for October. "Ode to Femininty" is inspired by Frida Kahlo, the late Mexican artist.
Chelsey explored her talents, skills and emotions in this collection and challenged herself to use different fabrics, colors and shapes to express her growth and strengths. With ruffles, bellowing sleeves, and color; she mixes structure and softness allowing these designs to give a balance of strength while also encompassing an air of whimsicalness.
