Ms Yu, a world-famous fashion designer, created her own brand upon graduation from PolyU. She is highly regarded for her creative designs of qipao, blending eastern and western elements, which shine on the world stage. Her prolific repertoire also consists of uniforms, including the chic performance apparel seen in the Hong Kong equestrian events of the 2008 Olympics. Ms Yu has won countless accolades, such as Forty under Forty by the Perspective, the Ten Outstanding Young Persons Selection of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Professional Elite Ladies Selection, and Hong Kong Culture and Creativity Industries Award. She has twice been the winner of China's Most Successful Design Awards. Some of her works are included in the permanent collection at the China National Silk Museum. Caring about nurturing talent, Ms Yu has taught and served as an adjudicator of contests at PolyU.

MottoI hope to use design to continue to contribute to society.
