I began by designing and sewing journey at the age of 10. I learned how to sew through the local 4-H in Roosevelt, NY. From there I would make my clothes for school and even my prom dress. Sewing has always been a love for me inspired by my mother who would make dresses overnight for us to wear to school the next day.
It was that magic that I wanted to learn how to create as well. In high school my last year I decided I would try to get into the Fashion Institute of Technology. Through the help of my art teacher Mr. Hunt, he assisted me in the art preparation. Once accepted I moved from designing into Fashion Buying in Merchandising receiving an AAS. From there I continued on to Temple University earning a BBA from the Fox School of Business.
Doing personal seamstress work for years working with bridal and prom I took a long break before opening my own Etsy shop back in 8/2013. This year I decided to branch out into my own website to give me more control over how my content is presented and utilized.
Li Li's Creations was born out of my love for fashion; I wanted a brand that combined my custom knowledge and my vintage love with a deep sense of culture.
Li Li's Creations is an evolving clothing brand whose initial staple has been to provide custom, one of a kind African Inspired clothing. With fun use of mix print dress, tops and skirts that have a vintage flair this marriage of the two has made for timeless, beautiful wearable art.
