    About me

    I am a costume interpreter and historical garment researcher, from Taiwan, practicing in London, UK.

    My work ranges across the past thousand years, from modern contemporary to the middle ages, with a particular interest in European period pieces.

    I have completed degrees in Costume Interpretation at Wimbledon College of Arts, and Fashion Management at London College of Fashion. As well as spending a year in Germany at Dresden Academy of Fine Art.

    Since then, I had worked on a variety of projects, including Anna Bolena (Met Opera House, New York), La Moda: The Glamour of Italian Fashion

    (V&A, London), and Ovo (Cirque du Soleil).

    Recently complete a Brazilian Carnival Parade (2015) production in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with Salgueiro Samba School. Now has return and currently based in London, I am available for freelance projects.
