The Milo Chao Show is a biography podcast where we talk to remarkable creators about how they got here. In so doing, we hope to better understand the roots of creativity and how we all might nurture more in ourselves and those in our care.

Lin Ou

Famous for her elaborate embroidery designs at Anthropologie, the American fashion label, and more recently at Robert Redford’s own fashion label, Sundance. 

Lin is originally from Beijing, the daughter of a diplomat. She left home to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer in the United States almost twenty years ago. She started her journey in Philadelphia and now finds herself in Utah.

We talk about growing up in Beijing, how her parents raised her, the influence her teachers had on her thinking, and the role humility and aggressiveness have played in her life.

We also talk about what inspires her, her unique experience as a Chinese female designer in the fashion industry, and what she has had to do to achieve success.
