Yuping Hang grew up in St Paul, Minnesota, in a diverse community and was exposed to many beautiful cultures and lifestyles. Throughout Yuping’s childhood, he observed his mother make many garments. The incredible work she did made a big impact on Yuping and led to his choice of career. Yuping studied clothing tech in high school, where he learned basic sewing skills and began to embrace his talent. Yuping also joined the fashion flub, designed looks for many fashion shows, and became head designer, helping other students solve problems they encountered while creating their garments. In 2015, Yuping enrolled in the apparel design program at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Feeling the program was not a good fit for him, Yuping stepped away from designing for three years. After receiving encouragement from his friends, Yuping decided to return to designing and enrolled in the Minneapolis College apparel program. Yuping will be graduating this spring and is receiving his AAS in Apparel Technologies.

I want to thank my incredible apparel design teachers for sharing their knowledge and wisdom and making me a better fashion designer. I also want to thank all the apparel design students for always keeping me positive and never letting me give up. Despite the past year’s challenges, I am thankful to myself for never suppressing my creativity.
