Yumi clothes

Last year, whilst shopping for flattering clothes, I bought myself a lovely and quite unusual top in a little shop I found whilst wandering in Bristol. Sorry, I can't remember the name or even where it was as I am afraid I don't have the best memory when it comes to places and directions. I did however have a look at the label and discovered to my delight that there is a whole website full of Yumi icon clothes.

Yumi, the younger sister of a more well known brand Uttam, was created by Uttam Nepal who started out in the UK selling knitwear from his home country Nepal in Camden market in the nineties. The label became popular for its brightly coloured embroidery and bead sequin and jewel embellishments. Yumi has taken the eastern inspiration and used it to create more trend driven designs with a younger and fresher feel.
What I love about Yumi is the way that the clothes flatter my shape but also have interesting patterns, designs and texture that are a bit different from much of the stuff on the high street. They definitely have a bit of a boho feel about them with lots of patterns and detail, perhaps that is why I like them so much. I will now have no trouble spending the rest of my Christmas money.
