A young designer builds her repertoire by adding coordinating lingerie to her line of softly tailored dresses.
Dressed in a fragile silk chiffon top and a tiered chiffon slip, Jean Yu has an almost ethereal presence. But her will to succeed is anything but. She spent a year and $200,000 renovating a 433-square-foot space, and last December opened her dream boutique, filled with the softly feminine lingerie and dresses she designs. Called 37=1, the store is named for its address, 37 Crosby Street. Airy and spacious, it has spare, Mod furnishings and club-like lighting. Panties and dresses alike appear to float in the air, suspended by nearly invisible fishing wire.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
