Nells Nelson

Days after immigrating from Hong Kong to Kansas, 17-year-old Sisi Li bought a one-way ticket to New York City. For decades she learned the art and industry of fashion hands on, quietly noting how often function yielded to form.

In 2016 she launched Nells Nelson, her statement on couture's capacity for both elegance and ease. Nells Nelson is founded on what Sisi calls: "Fabrics that pamper you." Limited-run wools, cashmeres and silks that can look solid but feel startlingly light and sensual to touch. She marries her ingenuity for clever, lush materials with hand tailoring that delights with inventive detail. Prioritizing both form and function, Sisi's proposal is simple. Couture that doesn't compromise.
