Founded in 2019, PSEUDO POEMS is a women’s ready-to-wear brand with a vision to create and embody a modern romantic aesthetic.
With a keen eye for sophisticated shapes and a focus on organic fabric textures, PSEUDO POEMS strikes the perfect bal- ance between sculptural silhouettes and natural drapes in its designs.
The brand’s lead designer, MINGYAN YANG, graduated from Parsons School of Design in 2016 with a speciality in womenswear. That year, she won the UNIQLO Global Competition which gave her the opportunity to work at its HQ in Tokyo as a womenswear designer. Her design identity is characterized by mar- rying Western ideals of romantic beauty with Eastern standards of functionality, achieving a new form of soft femininity.
The original inspiration for PSEUDO POEMS derives from Rabindranath Tagore’s “Stray Birds” verse no. 204 – “The song feels the infinite in the air, the picture in the earth, the poem in the air and the earth; For its words have meaning that walks and music that soars.” PSEUDO POEMS composes in garments, and the garments that are worn in turn becomes poems of the future.
