Who is Ysabel Hilado?
Ysabel Hilado is a 21-year-old Filipina ready-to-wear fashion designer based out of Artesia, California. Since high school, she has taught myself everything she knows strictly from tutorials straight out of Pinterest and YouTube. She describes her design aesthetic as “street chic,” where she creates looks with a juxtaposition between urban street style trends and feminine elements. A lot of her designs are influenced by her own personal style so she always keeps the question in mind: “If I won’t wear it, why would I make it?” Ysabel wants women to feel like they have a purpose and are ready to take on the day or night whenever they wear her designs. She tries to keep versatility in mind so that people are able to style my pieces to go with their own personal style and for any occasion.
YSABEL's story of discovering HER love for fashion began at a young age...
….when she would sketch designs and cut Barbie's clothes. At only 13 years old, Along The Lines Pocket Tees was born where she sold customized pocket tees domestically and internationally. Soon after, Ysabel's social media presence increased with her fashion blog titled Along The Lines of Ysabel that documented her journey as a young entrepreneur along with daily OOTD’s, DIY’s, and YouTube videos. Prior to her first year in college, she was a self taught designer learning strictly from online tutorials. Ysabel is best known for being one of the twelve teenage fashion designers on Project Runway Junior, Season 1. She will be attending CSU Long Beach this fall to pursue her bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design.
