Luly Yang

Luly Yang

Born into a family of architects, artists, and engineers, Luly Yang was encouraged from a young age to appreciate the fundamentals of timeless and elegant designs. At the early age of six, Luly began to show signs of her love for art and fashion. By the time she received a BA in Graphic Design from the University of Washington, Luly had acquired the fundamentals of form and function, with which she would build a career in branding and graphic design in the field of architecture prior to launching her eponymous label. 

In 1999, Luly created her signature Monarch Butterfly Gown for a fashion show benefiting the Art with Heart Foundation. This remarkable piece became an instant icon and the catalyst for rediscovering her love of fashion design. Luly immediately took the leap in redirecting her artistry to this new medium.
