Q&A with Shelley Yu:
How long have you been designing/where did you get your start?
I was working as a designer for apparel companies in Japan for years before I moved to Toronto in the summer of 2009. I launched my own label in April of 2011 in Toronto.
Where did you find your inspiration for your fall/winter collection?
The movie “Roman Holiday” reminded me of the beautiful 50s’ silhouette. So I decided to focus on the style of the 50s, casual, sophiscated and romantic. Black is the main colour for this collection, but decorated with lace, frills, ruffles or cutting in a floating shape brought romance to otherwise simple lines.
What is the most rewarding part about having your own line?
The dream I’ve had since I was 12 of having my own fashion line is now a reality!
