Xun Li, B.F.A. Menswear Design, was born in Chongqing, China. Li has worked as a fashion intern for two flagship retail stores in China, Shangxia in 2012 and Cai Lia in 2013.
In 2012 Li was chosen as a finalist for CFDA’s Teen Vogue Competition. Li’s menswear collection is evocative of his source of inspiration, which were windows, translucent plastic sculptures, and art that explores light and transparency.
He used translucent and buff-rubber silicone fabrics as overlays on black shirts and pants made from cotton twill, and accented collars, cuffs and fastenings with blue Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) for an ultra-modern feel.
The annual Academy of Art University Graduation Fashion Show was held San Francisco on May 14, 2015.
