Rae Yo Young is a fashion designer and multifaceted artist based in Nashville. Their art focuses on self-expression and is inspired by 1990s and early 2000s Harajuku fashion, southern culture, a multitude of fashion trends from subcultures throughout the world, and the exploration of their lost ancestral identity as a Black American.
