Designer Jessie Liu is from San Francisco.
She is part of the Art Hearts Fashion group and holds the honor of closing out the opening night during New York Fashion Week for the Spring and Summer collections for 2018 style and look.
Liu was born in the small coastal town of Penglai in the Shandong Province of China. Before entering the fashion industry, Liu was a corporate executive based in Toronto, Canada. However, her talent and passion for fashion design led her to the creative hub of San Francisco where she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Art University.
In the fall of 2011, Jessie’s evening gown was jury-selected from a pool of contending designers to be shown at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. Then in 2012, Liu was again selected to show her graduation collection at New York Fashion Week.
Liu has received the best young designer award from Arts Thread/WGSN and was sponsored to present her collection in the Who’s Next show in Paris. She also won the CDFA-sponsored Vitamin Water Fashion Design contest in 2012.
Liu is the proprietor and chief designer for the Jessie Liu Collection, a line of elegant and expressive women’s apparel—and her inaugural collection, titled “The Incense of Color,” won first place in InspiRare’s fashion design contest, which launched her to a sponsored fashion show at the 2014 Vancouver Fashion Week.
In 2015, Liu was selected to join a handful of designers to join Macy’s esteemed Fashion Incubator in San Francisco (FiSF), and according to FISF Executive Director Jeanne Allen, “Jessie is one of the most talented designers to ever participate in our five-year program.”
Liu’s aesthetic, use of quality materials, and eye for design is paramount to her future success in the fashion industry.
As a voice for artistic and cutting-edge designers, Art Hearts Fashion is paving the way for the future of Fashion Week. Art Hearts Fashion shines a spotlight on how fashion can promote constructive ideas and influence the progressive evolution of the fashion industry.
