About Yvette Elfawal

Yvette is a high-end women's evening wear line. The Yvette Fall/Winter 2013 New York Fashion Week collection received international recognition alongside designs from Zac Posen, Donna Karen, Reem Acra, and many others from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The brand was recently selected to debut it's Spring/Summer 2014 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days through Fashion Scout in Kiev, Ukraine. The designer's accolades include Parsons School of Fashion Loqall Challenge Finalist and MUUSEx Vogue Talents Semi-Finalist. Designs have been featured in MODEL Magazine, Quiescent Magazine, Meuse Magazine, and Elegant Magazine.


The line is inspired by the female body, architecture, and natural processes that occur in the world beyond fashion. In developing the designs, the designer experiments with new materials and creates innovative techniques. In transitioning from an architect to a fashion designer, the designer carried over the need to build, construct, and sculpt with materials other than soft fabrics. Final pieces are considered sculptures rather than garments, created to stand on their own. The style is ethereal, delicate and whimsical, yet very structured.
