Yueqi Li

A Memoir of Scent
Natural dye, Memory preservation, Beeswax sealing, Sustainable

Yueqi Li has been investigating the use of textiles to communicate a memory and how the continuity of life could be presented in fashion practices. Her initial inspiration was the smell of her grandmother and the memories between them. Different memories have a different kind of scent, and whenever that scent is smelled, your brain reflexively recalls the memory. Yueqi works to the exploration of environmental-friendly materials by using natural techniques. Yueqi is a scavenger in the memories of the past, and she has always been convinced that all emerging worlds and designs are following the foundations of the bygone, and that we can always find inspiration in history and memories.
