Luly Yang Couture recently hosted A Monarch’s Tale, a runway show premiering the designer’s 2012-13 evening wear and cocktail collection. Well, more like collections. The show featured over seventy looks split into five small, nature-inspired sets: Grand Canyon, Bamboo Forest, Amazonia, Antarctica, and Celebration.
Of her vision for this year’s runway, Yang said, "It was inspired by my personal experiences and transformations as a fashion designer over the past decade. I have chosen to tell my story through the eyes of the Monarch, the iconic gown that launched my career in fashion."
