After completing a dress-making course at a tailoring school in 1968, Benny Yeung opened a tailor's workshop in Central, and later furthered his studies in fashion design at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the United States of America. In 1973, he returned to Hong Kong after working in Los Angeles and London. As one of the pioneers of the local fashion scene, he is one of the founder members of the Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association and totally committed to promoting Hong Kong fashion industry. In 1991, in recognition of his innovative bridal design concepts, he won an award for creative design in the United Kingdom. His “Ben Yeung” label specializes in couture and evening dresses, while “Cigale” is a collection comprising executive and casual wear. All of his collections are available in the United States of America, Canada, Japan and Europe. Well-known for its exquisite design, stereoscopic cut and intricate craftsmanship, his work brings out the majestic elegance of his designs using silk, lace, sequins and embroidery. He is also very particular about the appropriateness of a design, which in his opinion should complement the wearer's personality as well as the occasion. His work is extremely popular in high society.
