Ingredients for a fashion Fairy Tale!

Famed fairy tale author Hans Christian Anderson once wrote; “’To live is not enough’, said the Butterfly, ‘one needs sunshine, freedom and a little flower’”. There are many things that we love about this quote, most notably sunshine, Butterflies (a tribute to Luly’s Monarch Butterfly dress) and of course the theme of ‘Fairy Tales’! With spring officially shinning in Seattle we cannot help but take note of the hummingbirds on the cherry blossoms or the way the sunrise reflects in the waves of Puget Sound.  This time of year takes us back to when we were children and we dreamed of becoming princesses, whether that dream entailed adopting seven little friends or finding the perfect dress! We believe that every woman deserves to be a princess and using our clients as inspiration we decided to treat our fans to all the ingredients to create a perfect Fairy Tale.  

  1. The Palace. Every princess needs a palace and it’s fitting that the historic Fairmont Hotel serves as our clients’ humble abode. Our castle has all the essentials; a lovely café, a valet for your “carriage” and a fabulous foyer where everyone starts their journey to becoming a princess.

  2. The Fairy Godmother. When a patron enters our boutique a design consultant greets them and leads them on a style journey. While she may not have the magic powers found in Cinderella, many of our clients say that our consultants have the same effect. Just like the characters from Anderson’s novels, she will assist you with gown selection and develop a relationship with you throughout your voyage.
  3. The Dress. When one thinks of a princess they are often imagined in a beautiful dress, which is an item we are more than happy to assist with.  Our walls are lined with bridal and eveningwear gowns that many clients use for inspiration to create the perfect dress!

  4. The Ball. Once you have your dress a princess needs to find a Ball where it can be admired! Each lady has her own unique style, of course, so your Ball might be a wedding or even a Gala. One fabulous event we are excited to be a part of is Urban Unveiled on October 12, 2012.  Every year we cross through Benaroya Hall and witness the fairy tale taking place; caterers, wine connoisseurs, photographers and designers celebrate the wedding industry in a special way. This year Luly is debuting her 2012 Bridal Collection inspired by Diamonds and Precious Metals on a state-of-the-art runway!


The Luly Yang team recently attended "Splash" at the Seattle Aquarium, an event that raised $625,000 for the organization and oceanic education. As honorary chair of the event, Luly was excited to take part this year as one of Luly's favorite inspirations come from our oceans. This event embodied all the elements that Luly enjoys and that we regularly discuss on SpotLight; style, positive change and people who are giving back to their community and environment. We hope you will continue to enjoy our Fairy Tales!
