Lloyd Klein is a well-known fashion designer whose designs have appeared on many red carpets in Hollywood. When he saw Shen Yun for the first time at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach on April 16, he was immensely attracted by the delightful colors and beautiful flowing costumes. "I thought the costumes were brilliant and they were beyond creative," said Klein. "The dance was very very interesting, very interesting. I loved everything about [it]. I'm very mesmerized by the show." "The colors are what is incredible. The mix of the colors is amazing. The fabrics, the embroideries were incredible. It shows that timeless beauty never fades." Traditional Chinese clothing is said to be inspired by the attire worn in the heavens. Shen Yun’s dance costumes are inspired by its 5,000 years of civilization, from different dynasties to unique attire from over 50 ethnic minority groups and folklore. Klein felt "very inspired." "The spirit of today was impressive and the mix of color is so modern that I wanna reinterpret this with my own style and have all my clients, all my celebrities, I dress everyone in Hollywood, I want them to dress the same way," he said. "I want to create a new collection with the same spirit." Story-based dance is one way Shen Yun portrays its traditional culture and its values. Klein appreciated Shen Yun’s artistic director for its uplifting and educational production. "I would like to meet him (artistic director), [he is] so talented. I want to tell him, he is extremely talented. Bravo, everything is done so well, so refined and elegant," he added. "And the messages were said in a very elegant way and I thought that it's a beautiful, beautiful show. I wish them, I know they're having a big success, and they’re sold out every show, and they deserve it." NTD News, West Palm Beach, Florida.
