XIAOLI

Xiao Li produces 3 seasons a year and showcases at London Fashion Week. The brand has an impressive list of stocklists, including Lane Crawford, Leclaireur, Dover Street Market, H-Lorenzo, I.T and is growing her international reach each season.

In the next couple of season we aim to establish the brand more strongly internationally by grown the reach of the brand both in the press attention received and by improving the list of stocklists.

We also would like to develop the knitwear aspect of the brand as this was one of the foundations of the brand. And thirdly we would like to work towards becoming eco friendly brand, limiting our impact on the planet as much as possible. We would like this point to become a selling point of the brand.
