Influenced by various cultures and art education, Sienna’s design philosophy thrives on her knowledge and experiences beyond fashion. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Chinese literature from China and a master’s degree in English literature from the UK. Her early pursuits in literature provides her with a sophisticated, romantic and creative perspective on art and fashion. When interviewing creative talents while she was working as a journalist in London, she was inspired to pursue a career in the fashion industry. Trained in Central Saint Martins and enrolled in Parsons the New School of Design, she is proficient in design, patternmaking and manufacturing. She refined her expertise and business sense by working in Jason Wu and Johnathan Cohen’s studio.
In 2015, Sienna founded a women's wear brand, named after herself, Sienna Li, located in New York City. Her studio serves her private clients with make-to-order couture, as well as buyers with high-end ready-to-wear.
