And now she's trying her own hand at the designing game, in a new collaboration with Olympia Le Tan to celebrate the Chinese New Year. "Working with the Olympia Le Tan team to create a series of bags to celebrate Chinese New Year was a dream come true," Yu said. "It was my first time co-designing a product range, and it was extra special to be with a brand I’ve been collecting for many years.
Seeing amazing women carrying bags that celebrated a part of Chinese culture was very humbling and emotional for me. " In honor of the new collaboration, now on sale at Net-a-Porter, Yu breaks down her very fashionable wardrobe, which includes Fendi capes—for a day off, of course.
Teach for China is one of my biggest passions, therefore being able to intertwine my love of fashion and creating a bridge between China and the rest of the world via design was a product I had to invest in purchasing.
A social and philanthropic fixture in Shanghai, Hong Kong, London, and New York, Wendy Yu has already become China's unofficial, self-appointed fashion ambassador at the age of 28, helping luxury brands to navigate the Chinese market.
