    The following feature appears in the August 2016 issue of NYLON.

    28-year-old Parsons MFA grad and J.W. Anderson alum Claudia Li’s namesake label—full of eye-catching shapes and striking textile embellishments—has quickly established her as one of the most exciting new talents on the scene. We’ve particularly taken to her fall ’16 collection, which features some of the most stunning denim creations, all artfully draped and folded to perfection. Here, the rising star shares her personal and creative inclinations.
