I am searching for myself.

Chi is a designer born and raised in Macau. Feeling confined in the environment where she grew up, her passion for art and design stemmed from searching for a way to express herself in a language that doesn’t require words. Fashion has become her tool of expression and acts as a form of escape from her cultural discourses. She is especially interested in fine arts and photography, which are the primary sources of reference for her work.
Dualism and paradox exist cohesively in Chi’s designs: fragility and stability, emptiness and fullness, connection and disconnection… Her work can be interpreted as a reflection of her inner self and is often seen through the use of organic shapes, contrasting materials and tranquil tones.
