Featured Wardrobe Stylist of August 2012:
Queena Yan was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada where she developed a sense of style at an early age. A knack for matching and color coordinating without knowing fashion came easy. She had no idea it would become her desired career.
Surrounded by her Chinese culture, Buddhism, and a vast array of music and art, her parents instilled a healthy sense of self, a respect of others, discipline and a high work ethic which she embraces to this day.
Queena was very active and athletic throughout her high school years. Dance classes and piano lessons, volleyball, basketball and tennis teams kept her more than busy. An appreciation of art, music and dance was developed and it has played an integral role in her visions in fashion.
Queena received her first degree at V.C.C. where she created her very first collection. The overall response was so overwhelming that it motivated her to collaborate and assist with the start of HardiHood Clothing, a Canadian based high end urban street wear company. This subsequently motivated her to pursue her higher education and career in fashion at F.I.T. in New York City.
En route to her second degree, Queena has worked with various photographers, wardrobe stylists, choreographers, directors and artists such as Bill Blass, Al Rodriguez, Lee Clower, Lucy Corrigan, Isle White, Derek Reed and Lil Kim to name a few.
Her work has been featured in Vogue Italia, Vh1, MTV, Paper-cut and other various magazines. Her work has also been featured in film and TV. Queena's goal is to create a high end movement combining fashion, music, art, dance, photography, and styling which would culminate into her brand, Queena Yan.
