Local fashion designer Luly Yang is inducted into the Asian Hall of Fame

Luly Yang, an internationally acclaimed fashion designer, was recognized earlier this month for her achievements in design, business and philanthropy at the 15th annual Asian Hall of Fame gala at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel.

Yang was inducted to the Asian Hall of Fame this year along other outstanding honorees like Jonathan Chu, filmmaker and director of “Crazy Rich Asians”, John Robert (J.R.) Celski, short track speed skater and three-time Olympic medalist, and Marc Anthony Nicholas, Emmy award-winning producer of “The Talk”.

“I am truly honored to be inducted into the Asian Hall of Fame,” said Yang,“My cultural heritage and values have guided me throughout my career; from my early years in graphic design to my work in the fashion industry designing couture and ready-to-wear. I will continue to lean on what was passed down to me as I continue to pursue my passion in design both in couture and in branded corporate uniform solutions."

Congratulations Luly!
