Sydney based designer & creator of
creative fashion label EVYIE Ly Yin
When did you know you wanted to be a fashion designer?
From a very, very young age. My mother was a dressmaker
with a huge love of textiles and I think I inherited this from her.
How would you describe your fashion design style?
Creative and contemporary.
Who are the designers, artists or creative people that inspire you?
I think Akira Isogawa is brilliant.
How does a typical day of work go for you?
Fairly fluid and unstructured with the occasional manic moment!
What is your creative process when designing a new piece?
I'd probably describe it as experimental.
How would you like women to feel when they wear your designs?
My goal is for women to feel really good about themselves.
What makes your designs unique?
I think there is a subtle beauty in the simplicity of the designs.
What is your advice to aspiring fashion designers?
Follow your heart, always.
