Pushing the boundaries of knitwear, Xiao Li is best known for her witty commentary on the current fashion system, using colourful, voluminous shapes, and innovative yarns and textures. Studying BA Fashion Womenswear at London College of Fashion, subsequently at Royal College of Art, where she graduated with an MA in Womenswear Knitwear in 2013, Xiao began attracting attention back in 2012, when her structured, bubble gum knitted garments won the Pitti Filati ‘Feel the Yarn’ competition, an award for innovative knitwear. The following year, she won both the Loro Piana Award for Best Knitwear Collection and the International Talent Support Diesel Award – an accolade that led to a seven piece capsule collection in collaboration with the brand and sold exclusively at 10 Corso Como. With an impressive list of stockists, including Dover Street Market, H-Lorenzo and 10 Corso Como, Xiao Li is growing her international reach each season.
