Founded in 2016 by Parsons Graduate YiQi (Leaf) Xia, LEAF XIA is an advanced
contemporary womenswear brand that is based between Shanghai and New York. The
brand is designed for the independent, candid, and daring woman with an aesthetic that
is spirited, youthful, artistic, and colorful, all at the same time.
With each collection, Xia hopes to inspire people to promote happiness and positivity.
She draws inspiration from humanity, love, and a joyful engagement with color and prints.
Specializing in collage, her collections feature oversized outerwear with sweet, fitted
dresses that are a play on classic silhouettes. LEAF XIA is a fashion brand that
encourages people to remain true to their individual identity.
LEAF XIA showed her first official runway show at London Fashion Week in February
2016. Collaborations with other brands have been integral to her collections, including
being the first Chinese designer to partner with the ice cream company Magnum (FW16)
and Hello Kitty (FW19).
