A self professed bookworm, Vancouver-born Steven Tai's unique blend of intellect and irony presents a refreshingly new take on the woman who stands confidently apart from the mainstream.
With a BA in Fashion Design from London's Central Saint Martins, Steven worked at design houses including Viktor & Rolf and Stella McCartney before debuting his own label in 2012. His quirky collection of innovative textiles combined with a celebration of the awkward caught the eye of Yohji Yamamoto, who awarded him the inaugural Chloé award at the 2012 Hyères Festival. Sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, he went on to present this collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin where he received international recognition for his self-confident and endearing take on the nerd.
Since then, Steven Tai has continued to amass a strong following – making his mark at New York Fashion Week in September 2013, exhibiting at Vogue Italia's 'Vogue Talents' exhibition in Milan, being a finalist for the prestigious ANDAM Award in 2014 and showcasing SS15 collection in Dubai as part of Vogue's Fashion Dubai Experience.
In 2015 Steven Tai had his first presentation in the Elm's Lesters Painting Rooms in London and is now showing his collections on schedule during London Fashion Week and Shanghai Fashion Week.
