Jack Yan gives Emerging Designer address at Dunedin Fashion Week

Mar '07
Lucire publisher Jack Yan will give the New Zealand Trade & Enterprise breakfast address for the Vodafone ID Emerging Designers' Awards on Thursday, March 8 in Dunedin.

Mr Yan will speak about how young designers can launch their brands internationally, and how to seize the media's imagination. He will touch on topics such as nation branding and staying true to one's vision.

Mr Yan founded Lucire in 1997 as New Zealand's first online commercial fashion magazine. Today, Lucire is fashion magazines in both print and web media, and is New Zealand's only fashion magazine published internationally.

What is less known in New Zealand, though quite well known in Europe and Australia, is that Mr Yan is an international branding consultant, and the only antipodean member of the Medinge Group think-tank.

In 2003, he co-wrote Beyond Branding: How Transparency and Integrity Are Changing the World of Brands (Kogan Page, London). In 2005, his Typography and Branding (Natcoll Publishing, Christchurch) was released. He is a regular international speaker.

Each of Mr Yan's businesses has become international, from JY&A Fonts, Australasia's leading font software company, to Lucire. He was most recently profiled in Idealog (March 2007).

The breakfast is hosted by Mark Lockwood of DFI, the Dunedin Fashion Incubator, and Alan Richardson of NZT&E. It commences at 8 a.m. at Plato Restaurant, 2 Birch Street, Dunedin.

Jack Yan founded Jack Yan & Associates, one of the world's first virtual firms, in 1987. His company is based or represented in over a dozen countries worldwide. Among his company's interests are business consulting, imaging, software and media, including the fashion magazine brand Lucire.
