15 things about me

The people in my life—my family, my friends, my team at work, and my loved ones—know me and my brand. But for those who want to learn more, I want to share with you 15 things that you probably didn’t know about me. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed sharing them!

1) What’s your favorite movie/tv series?

I love movies that make me laugh, inspire me, or teach me about history. My go-tos are Love Actually, Pretty Woman, and Bridget Jones’ Diary. I also love shows like The Crown, The Two Popes, Marco Polo, and The Last Czars.
2) Of all your bags, which one is your favorite and why?

The Mini Giovanna—it’s such a unique model that I first designed when I launched the YY brand. I have a really special place in my heart for that bag.
3) Why did you decide NY for YY?

It was all improvised. I had to leave Venezuela with my family and NY was the chosen destination. The rest, as they say, is history.
4) What’s your favorite season in NYC?

September. I love when the seasons change and the leaves start to fall.
5) Three words that define YY the brand and Yliana Yepez?

YY: Unique, Functional, Inspiring
Yliana Yepez: Honest, Persevering, Passionate
6) What’s your favorite vacation spot?

I have several, among my favorites are Mallorca, Capri, and St. Barths
7) What’s one of the happiest moments of your life?

When my kids were born, it’s just an incredible memory that I will never ever forget.
8) Where do you expect to see YY going in the future?

I try to live more in the present than in the future but I definitely see myself working for years to come and building my brand because I love what I do. I visualize it being a guiding brand in the Latin American fashion industry.
9) What has been one of the most challenging times in your life?

Without a doubt when I started YLIANA YEPEZ. I never imagined how much work it would take and the first few years were very hard. It was a huge challenge and it took me a few years to hit my stride and reach a comfort zone.
10) Who do you admire?

I admire women. They inspire me and every day I learn something new from them. It’s incredible what we’re capable of achieving. We’re stronger together.

11) What’s your favorite color and why?

I love blue although ever since moving to New York the color black is now a part of my life.
12) What’s your favorite food?

Before COVID it was sushi but now I’m addicted to organic meals and fresh fruit. I love salmon bowls with avocado or spinach wraps with hummus.
13) What’s your favorite place in New York and why?

I always feel at peace when I’m at Central Park. It’s a magical place to take a walk and I get a moment alone with my thoughts. It’s also a place I love to enjoy with my kids and my family. It’s a place where I get to experience nature and the outdoors.
14) What’s your favorite flower?

Roses, peonies, hydrangeas and tulips.
15) If you had to give advice to your past self 20 years ago, what would you say?

I’d tell myself to enjoy every moment on the road of life, to not wait until everything is perfect to do things because perfection doesn’t exist. I’d tell myself to always work with joy and to take more vacations :))))
