RENLI SU is a London based designer brand founded in 2014. The label’s philosophy is shaped by Renli’s interest in history paired with an ever expanding curiosity about nature and the human spirit. Her collections are characterised by her dreamy sense of nostalgia, filtered through a lens of contemporary romanticism. Looking at history, relating to the experiences of people ties a bond between humans that can serve as a place of solace in our fast moving lives.
Telling a story through visual and sensory impulses is at the core of Renli Su’s design process. Silhouettes are free and soft, despite the carefully detailed elements that make each piece a unique labour of art. Renli’s love for old craftsman’s techniques on cotton, linen, wool and silk is in playful balance with the use of innovative fabrics and modern methods of fabric manipulation.
Renli Su received her MA from London College of Fashion in 2013, after having graduated from Central Academy of Fine Arts China in 2010.
