A fresh new, self-taught design talent who gained his fashion philosophy through two decades of buying high-end designs as a consumer.
From an ad man to designer juggling his innovative creations with his role as family man and father to three young children in the space of a year.
He shy's away from sketching preferring to think through a design or to create on a form. His pieces are wearable, individual and innovative using common materials in a totally unique way. Yan To carefully established his label with a unique point of difference, something that he believes to be essential. His signature elastic techniques and level-headed view of fashion and life single him out as a modern fashion rebel.
His debut SS11 collection was bought in full by Harrods Fashion & Beauty Editor, Marigay McKee, for the flagship Knightsbridge store. AW11 collection
will be available from Harrods and Layers.
