YAMA Wu: Overture Haute Couture Ensemble...a one-of-a-kind, electrifying collection by DJS LIFESTYLES Artistic Director Derrick J.Sellers.
So who is YAMA Wu? A fictitious persona...Born in Japan...Raised on the streets of Berlin... Yet, cultivated as an urban global gypsy. Yama Wu lives on the edge...the periphery...the juxtaposition of Form, Function, Freedom, Flamboyancy, Fashion. Bipolar in disposition...Eclectic, Eccentric, Emphatic, Elaborate, & Enigmatic with and eye on being culturally Essential -- Think "300" meets "Game of Thrones" or "Hero" meets "Inglorious Basterds" -- A nonconformist, he effortlessly intermingles a myriad of genres...the highs & lows military utilitarianism, 80s Punk Rock individualism, Avant -Garde artistry...doused in undertones of Middle Eastern, Asiatic, & Japanese street fashion and fused with tailored European traditionalism.
What is YAMA Wu? It is Dramatic, Dynamic, Didactic, well-Defined and never Derivative that dips and dabs in grays, blacks, blues, greens, golds, and other jewel-tones.
Colorful yet Conscious...Charismatic yet Conspicuous...nu-Coventional and nouveu Chic. High-end garments accentuating Sustained emotions.
Bold, Belligerent, & Balanced. Incorporating a full Woman's line inside a Male Collection and featuring fabrics from foreign locales such as Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.
Androgynous, Animated, Arresting... simply abbreviated -- YAMA Wu is Art!
