Ya-Chu Yang (Iris)

Born and raised in Taiwan, Ya-Chu (Iris) Yang has traveled to many different places around the world to widen her knowledge and experience in order to better herself in her artworks.

After high school, Iris studied Video Game Design at the Tokyo Designer Gakuin College, and also worked for a few months at DigiPark Inc as a video game designer before the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami occurred, at which Iris moved back to Taiwan upon the request of her parents and then came to the United States to pursue a degree in fashion design.

Iris graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in Fashion Design, and was featured in many local news outlets for her senior fashion collection. Her dream is to design clothes and accessories that can allow all women to feel more beautiful and confident.

In the summer of 2016, Iris worked at if&n, who are based in Taipei, Taiwan, as a Fashion Designer Intern, and after graduation, accepted an offer to go back to the same company for a full time Fashion Designer position.
