We Don’t Make Clothes but a Piece of Art, Wearable Attitude for People
As a firm believer that fashion is not limited to the aspects of aesthetics, functionality and novelty, Vincent has instilled his own motto “Beauty Exists Because Perfection Does Not” seamlessly into his peculiar choice of fabrics with passion, intellectual artisanship and creativity. His eponymous fashion label “VINCENT LI” founded in 2014 is paving its way to becoming the voice of breaking-through boundaries, celebrated for its concept of sustainability and diversity across genders, cultural identities.
Currently based in Hong Kong, the Shanghai-born fashion designer Vincent is now focusing on Asia and Australia market and remains motivated to explore on his journey with a strong sense of sophistication, profound understanding of people’s vulnerability and unique approach to empowering people who struggle to identify themselves with styles.
Starting life in the vibrancy of Shanghai, China, Vincent Li trained as a dancer from a young age. He took the path into the technical world of IT from School but made the bold full circle of coming back to his true self by reentering the quixotic world of the arts to design fashion.
Vincent studied fashion in Melbourne and Hong Kong. In 2013, Vincent took his internship at J.W.ANDERSON when he returned to Australia to start his label, VINCENT LI, in 2014, which based in Melbourne. In late 2018, it has found its Hong Kong Base – VINCENT LI LIMITED (HK). What is it about Vincent that we all remember on that first meeting? It’s the bright welcoming quiet friendliness and then the effervescent laughter that just about captures everyone into his world and leaves an indelible impression. But chat a bit further and you will find out more.
Vincent’s passion and love for fashion is not just to create something new and amazing to wear but it’s much deeper, he wants to capture the emotions and heart of the wearer. It’s not the aesthetics but the whole; you put the clothes on and then begin the journey into intellectual artisanship which each of his garments aims to instil.
