Anna Sui is known for making clothes perfect for rock and roll superstars — or people who just live like rock stars. Sui’s collections take you on a creative journey that mix vintage styles with her current cultural obsessions, from Victorian cowboys and Warhol superstars to Finnish textile prints. After two years at Parsons, Sui launched her first collection in 1981, premiered her first runway show in 1991, and now has over 50 boutiques in eight countries and her collection is sold in 300 stores in over 30 countries. Sui has also launched cosmetics, fragrance, shoe and accessory licenses. Sui sits down with Fern Mallis, the award-winning creator and organizer of New York Fashion Week, to discuss her journey from the suburbs of Detroit to the catwalks of Fashion Week.
