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.
Project Love Mei slip dresses and tops are made of pure silk from China, where most of the world's silk is produced and where it originated from. The silk comes from the Suzhou and Hangzhou regions. The garments are made by skilled tailors in Shanghai and they are bias cut, giving them a lovely soft drape feature.
