In Nei Hoi, also known as Gemma, was born in Macau, China. She started working as a fashion designer at 18, yet after a few years in the industry, she went back to school at Parsons the New School of Design. During this time of study, Gemma was offered with multiple scholarships, and was nominated for various competitions such as CFDA Teen Vogue, Eyes of Talent, WWD, Bergdorf Goodman’s Window Display and more. In 2017, Gemma was selected by NYFLF to present her collection The Metamorphosis at the One World Trade Center, 63rd floor, in New York City, and was covered by various major fashion medias.
In Italian, the name “Gemma” means jewel or gem, as Gemma believes that every girl has her own unique shine, just like every precious stone. Treating every girl that she dresses as a diamond, Gemma believes that everyone deserves to enjoy the beauty of couture constructions and details. Gemma founded and established her own designer label Gemma Hoi in 2017, where she determines to break the boundaries between couture and ready-to-wear, allowing more extravagance and delicacy to enter everyone’s daily wardrobe.
