about mindy lam Mindy Lam is a Chinese-American artist and couture jewelry designer who weaves various metals into her signature metal lace with Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, and other precious metals. Originally born on a chicken farm in Hong Kong, the glamour and fantasy Mindy creates now, is a far cry from her childhood experiences. Her work reflects the craftsmanship of the classic couture houses of old, but with a refreshingly modern edge with the fusion of her signature florals and metals. The collection can be worn on the red carpet as statement pieces for young starlets and veteran fashionistas, to custom pieces for entertainers for the stage. From bridal and costume design with full-length woven metal floral gowns and fantasy headpieces to avant-garde home and event dĂŠcor, Mindy Lam is a force and all-around design rock star.
Designing for over 15 years, Lam was a huge favorite at Henri Bendel in New York City for almost 10 years, she has been featured in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston as the featured designer during the Picasso Black and White Exhibit, Elle, Brides Magazine, Glamour, People, Life & Style, L'Officiel, and even shot twice for Vogue Italia . Partnerships have included the National Cherry Blossom Festival, W Hotel, Prevent Cancer, and more. Her charitable involvement includes The American Heart Association and The Heart Ball, St. Jude, Texas Children's Hospital, The Alliance FranĂ§aise of Washington, and Bette Midler's star-studded New York Restoration Project soiree. The White House has also purchased Mindy's pieces as gifts for foreign dignitaries.
In 2010, her business came to a screeching halt after her heart stopped and the diagnosis of end stage kidney disease. The next 3 years included a rigorous dialysis schedule, and she lost everything including her home, due to her inability to work. Finally in 2013, when her daughter was of age, she donated her kidney and the story made front page Yahoo News. As a kidney disease survivor and transplant recipient from her beloved daughter, Mindy Lamâ€™s giving back is in a more purposeful way and is more important than ever. In 2016, she successfully relaunched her brand with much fanfare after making a full recovery. Because of her life changing experience, Mindy has now incorporated a philanthropic component to the brand through special collaborations with other designers and organizations to continue to uplift and spread love and hope.
