Youngsong Martin is the dynamic entrepreneur and designer who propelled her high-style rental firm Wildflower Linen into prominence in the domestic and international special-event industries. She began her career as a fashion designer, converting her formal training in South Korea and the United States into a dream come true as the creator of namesake lines of women’s apparel sold in boutiques and department stores throughout the U.S. Youngsong also was a senior instructor at the prestigious Otis/Parsons Art Institute’s School of Design in Los Angeles. Youngsong later melded her affinity for entertaining and fine dining with her expert knowledge of textiles and fabrications to create a thriving decor rental business, Wildflower Linen. Since founding the company in 2001, Youngsong has grown it into a preferred source for celebrity event planners, leading hotel and catering executives, discerning organizers of corporate and social functions, and the hosts of gala weddings of all sizes. As her business evolved, it outgrew two Southern California headquarters facilities before moving in 2006 into a large complex in Buena Park. Youngsong also has launched branch showrooms at an upscale design and decor center in Costa Mesa, a boutique showroom in the heart of Beverly Hills and in San Francisco’s popular SoMa warehouse/loft district. This was followed by the brand’s 2010 showroom debut in Scottsdale, Arizona and the launch of a showroom serving the renowned alpine resort communities of Deer Valley, Park City and Sundance in Utah. In addition to alliances with sales representatives in major cities nationwide, Youngsong has pending deals for exclusive branding alliances in Europe and Asia. At home in the United States and abroad, numerous print and broadcast media have showered attention on Youngsong and her banquet fashions with reports and pictorial features in wedding and design magazines, The Wall Street Journal and on various network and cable television programs. In 2007 Youngsong was honored as Entrepreneur of the Year by an Orange County business association and was presented with more than a dozen formal commendations from the U.S. Congress and the California Legislature. In 2009 Youngsong won the Trendsetter Award and a Hall of Fame induction from the Association of Bridal Consultants, and was nominated for the Women in Business Award by the Orange County Business Journal. In 2010 Youngsong was presented the Shining Star Award as “Most Inspirational Person” by the charitable Wish Upon a Wedding organization. Youngsong was featured on the cover of a special edition of BizBash magazine, the leading publication for the U.S. special-event industry, which profiled her as one of its “most innovative people.”
