Alumni Spotlight: Yana Dee Weglarz

January 8, 2019

Yana Dee Weglarz (’04), owner of Yana Dee, an ethical apparel made in Michigan clothing store, reflects on her experience at Finlandia and discusses the best parts of being a business owner.

Weglarz, an alumni of Finlandia’s International School of Art and Design, started her own clothing line after graduating. Her business places a strong focus on ethics not only in the materials used to create the clothing, but also in the business decisions and their effect on the environment.

Weglarz, who always saw herself as an entrepreneur, now has her own storefront in Traverse City Michigan where she sells her designs and apparel worldwide.
