Melanie Sanh – Textiles


I am a French born Chinese Textile Knitwear Designer.

Recently back in Paris! Over the past four years, I have been living in Paris, London and Hong Kong; and traveled to Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Shanghai and New York in the past six months. Looking forward to my next destination! Or the next place I’ll live in?

I graduated in June 2012 with a MA in Textiles Knitwear at the Royal College of Art in London, following a BA Textiles Design for Fashion (BTS Design de Mode Textile et Environnement) at the ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres and a Foundation year at the ESAA Duperré in Paris.

As you have noticed, I love traveling! I am not sure how it influences my design work, but I believe that everything I had the chance to see and experience polished the person that I am.

I also love food! I am very lucky being born into a foodie family, and being brought up refining my palate! I sometimes question myself on whether I travel to satisfy my eyes or for my mouth!

I am always on the lookout for new experiences and new experiments. Be it culinary or for a design collaboration, please give me a shout!
