Hello, my name is Bethery Yang and I'm all about sharing my journey in fashion, faith, and fun adventures. I graduated from Mount Mary University with a Bachelor's of Art in Fashion Design. I have always loved fashion and art ever since I was young. I also really enjoyed photography in high school, where I learned how to use Adobe Photoshop and took photographs of anything about fashion.

 

As a fashion designer, I have a strong taste in streetwear and street fashion. Almost 99% of the time, I get my inspiration through street fashion and just the urban setting of the cities around us. My designs are very minimalistic, but with eye catching details. From classic silhouettes with contrasting fabrics or from basic garments with hardware embellishments. For me, it's all about the details with the zippers, beads, hand-stitches, buttons, studs, and so on. To me, the small details are the things that make me love the garment most. 

 

Other than my love for fashion, I have a strong connection with my faith.“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) This verse speaks a lot of truth in how I design and how I live. To me fashion is a great passion that I​

have but my passion to pursue my God is even greater. I want to become a role model for those who want to honor their bodies by dressing modestly and who want to get to know God more. I really hope that you got a glimpse of who I am and I would like to invite you to come with me through my journey of fashion, faith, and fun adventures.
