Claudia Li is a New York-based designer brand focusing on creativity and true craftsmanship. Combining 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, prints, colors and textures. Each season, Li paints a story to express emotions and abstract experiences into a tangible collection with personal sentiments.
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. In 2017, Li was a finalist for the International Woolmark Prize and was a Forbes 30 under 30 honoree.
The brand currently shows twice a year during the seasonal Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter New York fashion weeks.
