About

I'm Michael "Myko" Lin, a graduate of Otis College of Art and Design and an all category collection driven creative director with a previous degree in Neurobiochemistry from UC Berkeley seeking challenging and rewarding opportunities in the high-end, contemporary markets. I'm experienced with all categories in menswear and kidswear and am collections driven: woven tops, jackets, bottoms, knitwear and cut and sewn knits. I believe in a hands-on approach to design and leadership with focus on details, merchandising, line building and mentoring. I love a challenge and am looking to grow with a company. From trend concept to design, to tech packs to production, I can do it all! With many years of experience from styling to retail visuals and from merchandising to trend directing/design, I'm dialed in on current macro trends and meticulous with details as well as being fast, efficient, fast-learning, hardworking, and a great team player and mentor/leader to design teams. Currently living and loving life in Shanghai, China. Please check out my portfolio site at WWW.IAMMYKO.COM
