Her work with companies like Liz Claiborne, Carole Little and Guess has helped her develop a style that is synonymous with haute design. Reinforcing the mantra that women should wear the clothes and not let the clothes wear them, her self-named label produces pieces that highlight each woman’s curves without hindering the fabric’s natural movement. Every collection created by this fashion maven is thoughtfully modern while remaining effortlessly timeless. From her professional pieces to weekend prêt-a-porter, Li captivates audiences in Arizona and abroad with her simplicity and dedication to fine fashion.
