Christina Yu

Christina is an East-Asian fashion designer and creator of Ipa-Nima. She was born in Hong-Kong, and became a practicing litigator in the law firm Baker & McKenzie there. She relocated to Hanoi, Vietnam with her husband in 1995. After developing private label work for international labels such as Shanghai Tang, G.O.D. and Anteprima, she created her own label Ipa-Nima at a time when fashion handbags were not made in Vietnam. Since April 1997, Ipa-Nima has been exported worldwide. Thus within a few years, Christina Yu single-handedly developed an export market that celebrates Vietnamese workmanship and creates opportunities for Vietnamese craftsmen and manufacturers. In addition, she still designs for private-label clients worldwide. Her celebrity clients include Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, HRH Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, Shakira Caine, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Braxton, Yasmin Le Bon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Cate Blanchett, Kelly Osbourne, Martha Stewart and Michelle Yeoh.
