Fashion designer Luly Yang creates couture with her clients in mind.
Fashion inevitably tells a story. A truly great design embodies the soul of the designer, their vision and lifestyle. Around the time that this post was being written, New York City’ s Met Gala was in full swing – certainly the story of the late Alexander McQueen was being told. It occurred to us that the reason so many influential and appreciative
individuals attended the event was to honor one of fashion’ s great storytellers.
In a city that is famous for it’ s coffee, rain boots and innovative companies one might
not be inclined to consider that Seattle has taste for high fashion -- that is, until you step into Luly Yang’ s bridal and eveningwear boutique. For over 10 years Luly has been designing made-to-measure couture garments for her clients. She uses the finest fabrics and her extensive knowledge of design and the human form result in gowns that perfectly complement a women’ s body. Nowhere in the Northwest (and the West Coast, we argue) can you have a similar experience and for this reason clients from across the country come to have Luly design their gowns and wedding dresses.
Luly has received numerous awards from many stylish organizations and Magazines, the Knot and Seattle Bride Magazine commend her dress making genius. She is also the recipient of the Nellie Cashman Award, the Puget Sound Business Journal’ s “ Women of Influence” Award and is a 2011 “ Brava!” award recipient by the Women’ s University
Luly also gives back to her community. Her annual fashion shows, a Seattle spectacle, raises money for organizations such as Seattle Children’ s Hospital and Camp Korey.
We are thrilled to be a contributor to Haute Living Seattle! We look forward to sharing our passion for style, romance and beauty. Keep your eyes open for upcoming events, style advice and much more. As Luly famously said; “ I find that I love to dream, but I am so happy to wake up and realize that life is better than a dream” – we hope you enjoy the story of Luly Yang Couture.
