True talent always chooses for itself only one direction, neglecting everything else, of little interest to itself. So it was with Anna Sui (Anna Sui), who at the age of four (at least she herself claims so) knew that she wanted to be a fashion designer. As a child, she spent a lot of time dressing up her dolls. And not just dressed up, but then played with them in high fashion shows, with a mandatory prestigious award in the end.
A childhood dream has become a reality. Today, Anna Sui is considered one of the world's most prominent designers. And the brand named after its creator is one of the most respected.
Anna was born on August 4, 1964, in Detroit, Michigan. She is of Chinese origin. Her father was an engineer, her mother an artist; They met in Paris during their student years. After many years of wandering around the world, they decided to settle in the USA, where their daughter was born.
Anna studied at Parsons - the famous and respected New York School of Design (Parsons The New School for Design). It was the decision to move from boring Detroit, which is most associated with the American auto industry, to New York, which was oversaturated with life, and played one of the key roles in the life of an aspiring designer.
Studying at Parsons brought me to Steven Meisel, one of today's most famous photographers. It was he who conducted the first photo session of Anna's works. Steve is still her companion and friend to this day. Anna's creations were published in an Italian magazine LEI. That is, Anna Sui got to the glossy pages even before graduation.
The very first show made a brand Anna Sui famous. Since then, many collections have been presented to the world - clothes, shoes and cosmetics. Many of them have received prestigious awards. The designer herself is recognized as a woman, which had the greatest impact on the fashion world. The creations of Anna Sui are enjoyed by people of different social strata and many celebrities.
