After graduating from LISAA, I launched my own haute-couture label, Elysée YANG, and my ready-to-wear brand, ZEMOELYSEE, in Paris. I moved these brands to China at the end of 2005. My collections, which I show on the runway each year in Beijing and Shanghai, are acclaimed by Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Bazaar, Luxury Times, Time Out, Madame Figaro, Life Style, BQ, El Pais, The New York Observer and CCTV, as well as other Chinese and international press.
