FEATURED ON SATURDAY 5/10/14 at the Love & War: The Age of Enlightenment Fashion Show
My name is Yong Lin and I was born in Fuzhou, China. When I was young my family moved from China to the U.S.. Throughout my entire life, from when I was as young as 5 years old till now, I have always been into fashion and enjoyed making clothes. After I graduated high school I enrolled in college at IADT and pursued my degree in Fashion Design & Merchandising. I then interned for a fashion designer who specialized in designing and creating wedding gowns, and custom gown/dress designs. While working with her I learned much more about the fashion industry and gained invaluable experience.
As a fashion designer I have always enjoyed and admired the beauty of many of the high-end dresses and gowns other designers make. The only problem with many of those high-end gowns/dresses is that they come with a high price. When making my own designs one of my goals has always been to capture that same high-end quality and beauty but be able to offer it at a more affordable price. My favorite part of being a designer is when I finish making a dress for someone and I see how happy they are with it once they try it on.
