As promised in my premiere article, I am writing to introduce you to Luly Yang of Luly Yang Couture—the owner, creative director, and designer of the ultimate luxury fashion house headquartered in downtown Seattle, Washington.

I always say your entrance and exit is the aura of your ever-lasting impression. This time, as my team—colleague Corinne Jordan and luxury photographer, Ilya Moshensky— and I arrived at Luly’s studio boutique, the entrance and interior personified Luly’s signature style with its elegance, which was so profoundly evident in every detail.

Her windows drew me to each mannequin impeccably placed in a poised ladylike pose with a menagerie of gowns constructed with sutache lace, satin textures and silk chiffon. In an elegant whisper they seemed to say, “please come in, relax and lavish in luxury and nothing less!”

For those of you who may not be familiar with her background, Luly Yang has become a global fashion and lifestyle resource for women, serving women from New York, London and Shanghai.

In that time, Luly’s passion and vision as a designer awarded her many coveted awards and notoriety such as: “Best Custom Dress Designer” for nine consecutive years by Seattle Bride Magazine; the prestigious Nellie Cashman “Woman Business Owner of the Year” Award; recognized as a Puget Sound Business Journal “Women of Influence” and has been internationally recognized, receiving fabulous accolades by the Chinese Press for her 20/20 couture collection debut in Beijing.

Luly is infamously known for her elegant bridal gowns and evening wear. Her designs are seen at the finest galas and events from Seattle to San Francisco.
The surprise I promised? Recently, she launched Luly Luxe—an exclusive ready-to-wear label that features limited edition Italian cashmere accented with Swarovski crystals, soft leather separates, and a fantastic selection of handbags and footwear.  

As a woman, Luly is a rare jewel who offers a special view on fashion design. Originally starting as a designer in the field of architecture she developed a unique understanding of line, form and structure. This coupled with Luly’s appreciation for a woman’s body produces elegant creations defined by depth, dimension and subtle symmetry. This concept triggered her unique aura and became part of her trademark—a signature of excellence in designing a dress of perfection for any woman.

In speaking with Luly about her inspiration, she credits her clients in saying “the woman and her body are the soul of the design.” Luly’s execution is precise and her mission is for women feel empowered, while enjoying great design. Her approach is a signature fit customized especially for each guest. Intelligent, wearable and gorgeous clothes are sculpted for each guest to wow her every curve!

It was an extreme pleasure for all of us to spend time with Luly, taking pictures and wrapping ourselves in the finest cashmeres imaginable. It definitely was a day of charm and beauty.

In the meantime, I will leave you with this thought…the Cardigan is the ultra symbol of diverse dressing teamed up with jeans and a tee or on the town with a sheath dress. I would highly recommend stopping into Luly Yang Couture and trying on a must-have, core piece in every wardrobe; a cashmere cardigan from Luly’s collection.

Please watch for my articles every third Thursday. In the coming months we have a line-up of some amazing people! Also, don’t forget to visit The Seattle Chinese Times Facebook page for exciting announcements and to see our newest edition…Andrea on the Town.

Until next time,
