Yidi’s gradual transition from finance to fashion began during her tenure as an investment banker with Credit Suisse, where she worked closely with global brands and international retailers such as Tommy Hilfiger, Philip Van Heusen, Tory Burch and Graff Diamonds to address finance alternatives and explore strategic opportunities.

Her most memorable banking moments include the sale of Tommy Hilfiger to PVH, visiting De Beers Group in Botswana and finally meeting Laurence Graff, the world’s most luxurious jeweler.

Inspired by her clients’ success in translating creative visions into timeless products and intrigued by the challenge of building a brand that embodies self-expression and individuality, Yidi co-founded Terracotta  upon returning to the U.S. in 2012. She serves as Chief Sales and Strategy Officer, where she is responsible for retail channel generation and overall brand positioning.
