A womenswear line designed mainly by Ashburn Eng, young&restless is made for the freespirited, confident and unpretentious woman, who is sophisticated yet, bold enough to daydream. She is forever young and down-right restless. Launched in August 2010, young&restless has since garnered much publicity and positive reviews from both local and international media, having been featured in publications like Alexis, Amica, CATALOG, Cleo, DEW, Designaré, Elle, Faint, Female, Glamcult, Her World, I-S, JUICE, LÓfficiel, MODE, OXYGEN, NÜYOU, Style, Seventeen, Surface Asia magazines, and Urban (The Straits Times). In addition, many art/design sites and blogs from several countries like Australia, China, Hongkong, Italy, London, Malaysia, Russia, Spain, Thailand, Vietnam and United States have featured rave reviews and coverage towards the label and collection as well. young&restless is proud to be the only Asian representative among all designer labels to present its collection at the spectacular 30th edition of Modefabriek’s NEXT AND CUTTING EDGE Designer Platform held from 23 to 24 January 2011 in Amsterdam. The NEXT show segment showcased fresh designs from an impressive selection of up and coming designers gathered all over the globe. young&restless is honored to also be invited to showcase in BLUEPRINT, Asia’s only international fashion trade platform, which runs from 19 to 20 May at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore.

About The Collection
For young&restless’ Autumn/Winter 2011 “Girl Power” collection, Ashburn was inspired and mesmerised by women dressed in menswear three-piece suit . He felt that such women exuded attributes of being bold, powerful, self-assured, as well as un-vulgarly sexy. Infused with his trademark pleating and draping of fabrics, classic suits, tuxedos, trousers, and shirts were treated with stylish and sharp silhouettes, with pleats adding an instant smartening effect and lengthening illusion to the wearer.
