Hi, my name is Michelle Li.

I am a multidisciplinary designer working in conceptual fashion design and fashion performance.  My current design practice intends to explore how objects and garments socialise with an audience to expand new ways of thinking and interpreting.

I am lead by conceptual development, observations, details, and consideration towards the audience to inform my design practice.

Each piece is unbound by time to instil longevity and appreciation.

I have a Chinese heritage, and background living in naarm/melbourne, Australia.
