PORTRAIT EXPRESS

Anna Sui (born in 1955, Detroit in Michigan) is one of the coolest names in fashion industry. What started in 1980 as a small label blossomed in the early nineties as editors fell for Sui’s charming and cheery designs. A lover of pop culture, Sui taps into all decades and motifs equally, depending on which way her mood swings. But her clothes can never be called “retro” or “derivative.” In her hands, sixties mod-istes, seventies glam rockers, eighties Jazzercisers, and nineties grunge addicts all look au courant. International designer Anna Sui's involvement in fashion began at an early age, with a devotion to dressing her dolls and her neighbor's toy soldiers for her own personal version of the Academy Awards. Sui eventually extended her fashion interest to include designing her own clothes and clipping fashion magazine pages to serve as inspirations. To this very day, she continues to refer to these "genius files". After graduating from high school in Detroit, Michigan, Sui moved to New York City to attend Parsons School of Design. While at Parsons, Sui found a collaborator and close friend in Steven Meisel, today one of the world's top fashion photographers. Her early days as a stylist for Meisel's shoots included editorial for the Italian fashion magazine LEI.
