Claudia Li is a New York-based designer brand focusing on creativity and true craftsmanship. Combing an artistic design aesthetic and an emphasis on details, the brand has successfully gained industry attention in its brief history through its ever evolving play on silhouettes, shapes, textures, and dimensions. Each season, Li paints a story to express emotions and abstract experiences into a tangible collection with personal sentiments that resonate with viewers. As Creative Director and founder of the eponymous label, Li’s background in fine arts is visible throughout the brand. Prior to her professional career as a womenswear designer at J.W. Anderson, Li worked at Haus of Gaga under Brandon Maxwell. Li studied at Central Saint Martins before obtaining her MFA in fashion at Parsons School of Design. Li was a 2017 finalist for The International Woolmark Prize. The young brand debuted at New York Fashion Week with Li’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection, and currently shows twice a year during the seasonal Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter New York fashion weeks. Additionally in 2017, Claudia Li will begin to present two pre-seasonal collections for the global market. Claudia Li can be found at If Soho (New York), Blake (Chicago), LCD (Venice, CA), Beams (Japan), Isetan (Japan), Maison Noir (Taiwan) and Gallery Opera (Ukraine).
