Fall 2021 Preview: “The collection is called “Homecoming”. It’s very prom, inspired by what I remember fashion felt like to me as a high school girl. It was dreamy, surreal, and dramatic.” Drawing references from ‘80s prom and high school nostalgia, Li incorporated signature silhouettes for fall, including the oversized neck bow on The Prom Dress, and slouchy shoulder jumpsuits and sweaters.
