Regena Yu

Regena is originally from Essex, London, has lived in Manila, Philippines, and now calls both Wisconsin and Minneapolis home. Living internationally gave Regena the opportunity to explore different cultures and art forms at a young age. Inspired by classic silhouettes and strong surface design, she strives to design classic, eye-catching garments by adding unique design features to enhance each piece. When designing, Regena challenges herself by experimenting with intricate patternmaking—an area of design she hopes to pursue in her future career. Regena has interned for designers such as Minneapolis bridal designer Tara La Tour, and Marchesa in New York. This is where she first developed her interest in patternmaking. She also took the opportunity to study at the world-renowned fashion school, Central Saint Martins in London, where she deepened her skills in the design and development process. Regena is excited to discover her place in the fashion industry after graduation.

Margin draws inspiration from blank, white, modern architecture with a focus on the continuation of line to connect spaces. The collection features 5 looks of tailored separates, each exhibiting minimalist and classic moods with a twist of modern, city fashion. Regena incorporates lines through interesting seaming and the use of a deep contrasting color to accentuate harsh lines. The juxtaposition of bright whites and light grays with the deep magenta yearns for attention. Margin is a collection for the young, vibrant, and modern city girl who seeks to dress effortlessly, but chic.
