    “I believe in the potential of modern women. My latest collection is a blueprint of empowerment, crafted to celebrate their resilience and complexity,” Li stated. “It’s a call to action, inspiring women to embrace their power, express their unique identities, and face life’s challenges with unyielding courage.”

    In “Ragnarök,” Charles Li’s latest collection, a harmonious blend of historical elegance and modern audacity comes to life.

Every detail, from engineered seams to the seamless integration of feathers, reflects Charles Li’s unwavering commitment to perfection and his reverence for the art of fashion.

    “Black is my favorite color, so are other dark tone colors like burgundy, navy,” Li added, “I was playing with color and materials a lot for this collection. Experimenting how different dye reacts on various type of skins, feathers was a focus during the development.” Li explained that each feather was dyed multiple times using sustainable, eco-friendly dyes to achieve a distinctive blue tint and shine. “We wanted to ensure that every feather not only looked unique but also reflected our commitment to environmentally conscious practices,” Li continued. “The result is a collection that embodies both aesthetic innovation and ethical responsibility.”

    “The fashion industry is ever evolving and fiercely competitive. For new designers, establishing a strong brand image can be challenging without significant experience and resources. As a designer, I dedicate immense effort to every tiny detail of each piece,” Li stated.
