VANCOUVER, BC – Sauder School of Business undergraduate student Yulee Hong, who founded The Suburbia clothing firm in 2004, is a featured entrepreneur and designer in the March 2007 issue of BC Business Magazine.

Hong, whose personally designed t-shirts are retailed at fashion outlets across the Pacific Northwest, and internationally via the company’s website, has garnered a strong following in local fashion industry circles.
