Yannick started designing since the age of 12. With French, Italian and Portuguese background, he was born in Lyon France and had a proper fashion education at Supdemod France before working for a number of fashion houses in France.
In 2008, Yannick moved to Shanghai to teach at IFA Paris Fashion institute while trying to establish his own couture label. Started off with private clientele mainly based in China, Taiwan and Singapore, his creativity soon inspired his first couture collection comprising high-end bridal and evening wears.
His personal taste and flair for sophisticated tailoring was also the inspiration behind the Mr Machado men’s line.
