Dee Dee Yang
MFA, Fashion and Textiles Design
Dee Dee Yang explores the phenomenon of cultural authentication of Hmong textiles in fashion, and experiments with traditional crafts as a medium for contemporary design. Her passion for Hmong folk costume and textiles stems from her ethnic identity as Hmong-American. Dee Dee also has personal experiences in making traditional clothing and textiles. After completing her B.A. in fashion design, she worked as a Design Coordinator for Old Navy’s Kids design team. Her current design work incorporates the practice of traditional hand crafts with fashion.
