Luly Yang Fashion Show Glows Within Connoisseurs of Life Showroom

The Hong Kong – Greater China Business Association of Washington hosted a Luly Yang fashion show at the Connoisseurs of Life Showroom in downtown Kirkland on October 22. The event of more than sixty guests was a benefit supporting Children’s Hospital and was a charity auction item during the 2014 Chinese New Year Gala held earlier in the year. Both Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty and DeLille Cellars were proud sponsors of the evening, providing the venue and award-winning wines for the well-attended reception.

Luly Yang travelled from Vienna to attend the event, although she considers Seattle her “home” and described her inspiration for the new line of dresses being presented. Dean Jones welcomed the attendees stating that his venue was designed precisely for this type of event, for friends and community members to come together for great causes and good times. Raising a toast to the crowd, Greg Lill announced that DeLille Cellars was recently nominated amongst five other wineries in the US for “Best American Winery Award” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, which will be announced later this year.

“Luly is a designer well recognized in the fashion industry,” explains Lili. “A lot of my clients – newcomers from China who bought their homes and settled their families here – would love to know her and her works because of her Chinese origin. Thanks to Luly, the Hong Kong Association, DeLille Cellars and Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, such an event will benefit the Seattle Children’s Hospital and enrich lives in our community. I hope a lot of my clients will get to participate and enjoy the next event.”

“What an incredible experience meeting an extremely gifted and talented designer,” says Rosemary. “Luly Yang is gracious, beautiful and creative, and her entire company and staff were extremely informative, kind and generous with their time and knowledge. The venue, DeLille Wine Lounge and Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, was dramatic, glamorous and reminiscent of the Old Hollywood Movie Star Era. The models were runway beautiful and statuesque, with the ability to mingle and converse with attendees. Thank you Luly Yang, Andy Yip, Dean Jones, Greg and Stacy of DeLille Cellars, and all the staff for creating a festive, elegant and enjoyable evening. A visual symphony and an absolute blast.”
