About Me

Karen Yan is a Los Angeles based fashion and costume illustrator with a background in Fashion Design Womenswear from Parsons Paris, and Fashion Design Menswear (BA Hons) from Central St. Martins College of Art and Design.  Along with a blend of influences from living in Hong Kong, Massachusetts, and New York, I strive to define my world view through my colorful, fun, and versatile illustrations. From runway fashion to movie/ TV costumes and everything in between, my aim is to bring my passion and creativity to each and every project I work on.
