Born and raised in Vancouver, Marilyn Yeo worked in retail during her teens because she loved clothing. This experience exposed her to trends, colours, textures, and curating outfits. As a child, Yeo was always drawn to fashion due to her love of fabrics and texture. “Even as a child, I wanted to pick my own clothes to wear. Styling has always been important to me,” she said. Yeo is self-taught and designed her first garment in 2016. She explained that browsing through a fabric storeroom is like a candy store. “Once I see the right fabric, it inspires me and I start to visualise the outfit. Using a dress form, I begin to bring the picture into reality.”
"Marilyn Yeo stunned with an exquisitely delicate and luxe collection of feminine gowns. A beautiful open shoulder dress with floral lacework, a cinched-in waist, and puffed skirting started the soirée. Scintillating metallics shined like mermaid scales. Shimmering layers of satin and silk, fringing beadwork, and flower appliqué set an opulent tone, with models crowned with gold floral headbands like tiaras.
