Lockdown-Inspired Sienna Li SS21 Brings Nature-Infused Romance to the New York Fashion Week
With the legendary New York Fashion Week approaching, a renowned New York based high-end women’s wear fashion designer’s brand, SIENNA LI has proudly announced the launch of its latest Spring/Summer 2021 Collection.
This season was absolutely the most special one in NYFW history. All the brands needed to move their runways to online presentation due to the impact of the pandemic.
After the unforgettably stunning runway show for SS20 collection at Pier59 studios, Sienna Li has live streamed her campaign video of this SS21 collection on CFDA RUNWAY360 platform. Moreover, this breathtaking new collection was all about inspiration and style, and it was already creating a major buzz in the fashion industry worldwide.
“During the lockdown in New York, the city became very dull and lukewarm. An unenthusiastic wind blew around the city and quarantine became the order of the day thus grinding to halt the hitherto bubbly city.” Said the spokesperson of Sienna Li, while talking about the upcoming collection launch at the fashion week. “We were considering this fashion week as an opportunity to bring back the memories of our pre-lockdown life, full of colors and style, as well as all the expectations to the time when the pandemic would be gone.” She added.
This collection was inspired by the designer’s impression and memory of what life was like before the lockdown was imposed. To reminiscently illustrate the world and lifestyle that we all had a few months back, when people were free to attend events, gather and do a lot of travelling, this collection embraced plenty of conceptual and idealist elements to create a good old fantasy in fashion.
Same as Sienna’s personal memory, the elements in the collection were shown as abstract, romantic and fragmental. Oil painted fabric, lace, sequined embroidery and beading were applied to reveal a fragmented picture, which included cocktails in bars, balloons in carnivals, lights in parties, flowers on the field, and pearls in the sea etc. The positioning of the city life and the forces of nature was a reflection of this disorganized world we live in at the moment.
The video screened at the fashion week featured Sienna’s work along the beach and in the woods, which expressed her intended retreatment back to the nature, seeking a recovering, healing and seraphic lifestyle.
Established in 2015, Sienna Li created upscale clothing and bespoke couture that allowed ladies be part of designer’s elegant world. Ethereal designs followed by never-seen-before creations in construction and finishing, Sienna celebrated unparalleled beauty and aesthetic elegance with a gentle sense of mystery. Her high fashion line took on women who wanted to be gracefully beautiful even though striking at any event be it a gala or on a red carpet. Sienna also hosted private events to meet her V.I.P clients, measure and make dresses for them from New York to Paris, from China to Japan, from London to Milan.
Hailed from China with an MA in English Literature, Sienna was multicultural inspired, who has received her education in the United Kingdom before settling in New York as an emerging fashion designer. She started her own business 2 years after enrolled in Parsons and made her debut with a made-to-order-couture collection and the rest they said was history.
