After completing her studies,
Ms. Li honed her skills at various fashion houses
including work with British designer, J. W. Andersen.
She’s now launched her eponymous label
and will show for the second time
at New York Fashion Week, (February, 2016).
Her design aesthetic pulls inspiration from her cultural origins and travels;
the silhouette of her clothing: loose, easy, unencumbered
a gentle fit / a gentle palette.
