Lei is a fashion textile artist who specialised in creating fashion costumes using mixed media forms of printed textiles. Her work focus on creating narratives that are challenging gender norms and celebrating human identity. Lei graduated from London College of Fashion with a First-Class Honours degree in BA (Hons) Fashion Textiles: Print, where she started exploring the boundary between performance costume and contemporary fashion. During her study at RCA, Lei has explored her identities through various forms of creation-- from traditional ways of textile printing and illustrating to digitally modelling, and creating moving images.
Eternity, Romance and Revolution, represent Lei’s ideal way of human existence. To have everlasting life and regeneration ability like a jellyfish, to have the most romantic life form of a whale, and to have the revolutionary pursuit of evolution and metamorphosis. Lei's works are always about human-being and she's keen on creating an ever-lasting piece as an elixir of life.
