The latest collection created by New-York based designer Andrea Jiapei Li offers a strinking insight into the the themes of vulnerability and empowerment through self-discovery.
Impulses, such as introspective exploration and discovery have always had a liberating effect on Andrea’s work. Thus, FW17 collection portrays them more explicitly — mostly, through a range of materials.
And as though celebrating an importance to accept something or somebody enthusiastically, she titled the collection "Embrace," while nonetheless remaining in her pursuit of being sincere and allow yourself to feel weak sometimes. Andrea explained that this collection emerged from the desire to depict a woman who overcomes the unknown, and embraces the future with bravery and confidence — a woman who embodies both classic elegance and modern femininity, who fully embraces who she is and her capability of making a difference in the world.
