Project Love Mei
My purpose with Love, Mei is to help raise awareness about sex trafficking and child abuse in Southeast Asia through supporting and advocating change for these young women. To date, there are 32 girls receiving an education and supporting themselves through our efforts. By incorporating this social effort with fashion, I hope to start a conversation with people in my generation and encourage our community to support and engage with our extraordinary little women. Through sponsoring their education and providing employment to help these girls earn a modest living, they slowly learn to rebuild their lives again.

Vestiarium is a utopia – a dream of a world in which each garment is regarded as a collectible that perfects one’s wardrobe. But a collectible that’s used all the time – day after day, year after year. A collectible that is so carefully designed and fitting with the rest of the wardrobe that one doesn’t necessarily need so many of them. A collectible that has so little to do with fashion and so much to do with interesting design that it looks fresh still after years. A collectible that is produced by skillful professionals with so much love that it makes one feel good.
