An important part of my work is creating art pieces.

I feel fortunate to have collaborated with a few of the most intriguing, contemporary artists of our time.

This ceremonial kimono, made of pristine white feathers, was commissioned by New York artist Terence Koh, who lives and breathes his vision.

This is the same kimono at one of my shows.

I created this 'Transformation Cloak' for Mingwei's 'Sonic Blossom' show at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Ming Wei Lee is an amazing contemporary artist and dear friend.

This cloak was acquired by the MFA and is now part of the museum's permanent collection.

Creating each piece by hand is an incredible, beautiful experience. I love coming to work at my atelier. I prefer to keep the magic in these designs by handcrafting each one, despite expansion and financing offers.
