DAHUI LI SPRING/SUMMER 2015 TRANOI NEW YORK
After moving to the US at a young age, Dahui pursued his love for design and continued to hone his artistic talents.The age-old adage that working hard while you can in your younger years pays off as you grow older is something that has stuck with Dahui. He absorbed anything fashion related and refined his techniques while studying fashion design in Columbus College of Art and Design. The value of hard work persisted as he traveled to New York and London to intern and work for such designers as Oscar de la Renta, Jill Stuart, Leutton Postle, and St. John Knits. Eventually, Dahui knew that it was time to utilize the valuable experience he gained and couple it with his own creative direction to pursue his dream of starting his own label. He has since made New York his home, but allows the complexity and contrast of the diverse cultures that he’s encountered from living and visiting various parts of the US, Asia, and Europe to inspire his designs. Just as people are not all the same, Dahui feels that clothing should be as unique as the individual. He wants each woman to be able to express her originality with his clothing line. As a reflection of the designer’s personality, the New York-based label has become an extension of himself. His belief in craftsmanship and an attention to detail are evident in the dedication to the quality of his pieces. The simplicity of the Dahui Li design pairs with hints of subtle details to give it a dash of individual femininity. His unique designs are curated to be worn as an expression of oneself. An air of confidence exudes from the woman who chooses to don the Dahui Li pieces. She is striking and eye-catching, yet maintains an aura of subtlety through her effortless look. The designs of Dahui Li are devoted to changing the atmosphere of what women wear and creating an aesthetic that offers a refreshing take on women’s style.
