YOGA ARMY began in the infamous Hollywood rock’n roll recording studio Ocean Way, where Ry Cooder and George Harrison persuaded a young Sebastian to take a yoga class at Los Angeles’ The Center for Yoga. That was it! Sebastian was soon leaving a promising music industry career to manage and develop this famous yoga studio. Film ties with Hollywood studios moved him into film development where he met and partnered with Otis/Parsons alum Sandy Wee. Through the combination of their aesthetic talents and drives, YOGA ARMY was born.
Sandy Wee is a veteran of the fashion biz having designed for major dress companies for over 10 years. She says that “Yoga Army” is a good name because the clothing business is like a “fashion boot camp” where high demands and self-sacrifice are expected on a daily basis.
She credits Otis/Parsons for preparing her for these demands – training, preparation and hands on experience together with all night sessions to make sure the fit is “just right” for such Couture Designers as Nicole Miller.
Yoga Army is a combination of chic femine contemporary styles with under tones of a sexy rock n’ roll girl. Sandy says “The whole process is organic. When inspiration hits us, is when the best designs are created.”
Yoga Army is all about attention to detail, fit and quality. When you put on one of their pieces you know it’s unique, and has been made with passion. It’s a patriot made brand that believes in keeping America working.
Yoga Army has a message, a story. It’s the new Ying-Yang for the West
