[ Designer Bio] Lai Mei-Chih
Clothing designer and natural dye artist who not only does bespoke clothing and indigo dyeing, but also teaches classes on clothing design and natural dye usage. Her creations present mostly in blue indigo, and her studio resides in the northern area of Taichung City. Having encountered her teacher Yuma through a cloth-making class, Lai has had the opportunity to expand her direction through collaborations on Atayal clothing and installation art. Still, she stays true to her credo of loving the earth and uses only natural and environmentally friendly materials.
Lai has won awards at the World Han Couture Competition with her naturally dyed traditional Han clothing, and has played the role of pattern maker for the Atayal Sear-Uraw Fashion Show’s teen and child clothing design.
