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 décor, 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, Elle, Brides Magazine, Glamour, People, Life & Style, L’Officiel, and Vogue Italia. Charities and companies have included the National Cherry Blossom Festival, St. Jude, the American Heart Association, W Hotel, Prevent Cancer, National kidney Foundation, and more.
In 2010, she lost it all after her heart stopped due to kidney failure. After 3 years her daughter was of age to donate her kidney. In 2016, after fully recovering, Mindy Lam relaunched and starting over at 50. She is rewriting not only her fairytale story, but the stories of men and women all over with her fairytale jewels and inspiring them to inject a little magic by incorporating her “Everyday Extravagance.”
Her charitable involvement includes The American Heart Association and The Heart Ball, St. Jude, Texas Children’s Hospital, The Alliance Française of Washington, The National Kidney Foundation, and Bette Midler’s star-studded New York Restoration Project soiree. The former White House administration has also purchased Mindy’s pieces as gifts for foreign dignitaries.
