Ying Yang Pratt Institute Graduates was originally born in China and, moved to the U.S, New York City with her family at the age of 13. She got into local Art High School as a bilingual student under the fine art program. This developed her abstract way of thinking. She really enjoys the process of researching and the development of textile. For every collection, she put herself into the stories and tries to dig deeper into stories and pull out her very own personal perspective in her collection. Experiment and personal experience is the key for her. Ying wants to use fashion as a medium to express her ideas also, explores the unexpected possibility. She worked at Verawang and Jill Stuart as design interns. In the meantime, her 3D look has been selected for the Fashion + Sustainability: "Waste Not, Want Not" Exhibition. This project is based on research on “What is wasted? Why is it wasted? How to fix it?”
She presented her latest collection at Pratt Fashion show 2018.
