Sinead-Fashion-1When I arrived at the Rebeca Li fashion show I was surprised to be greeted by a line of tall, handsome men in tuxedos, lined down a red carpet, all holding roses. As they handed their roses out to each of the girls coming in, they said “Thank you for being you.” (My only reply: ‘Can I have this treatment every evening please?’) And after a long day in London it definitely made me smile.

‘Being you’ is exactly what Rebeca Li’s fashion is all about.

Born in China, Rebeca’s fashion is inspired by the Silk Road and her Chinese heritage, and she designs her dresses according to inspiration she draws from the person she is making it for.

“I crafted my collection to carry a woman through the day, from work to play, with fabrics that hold their own and are transformed by the changing light,” says Rebeca.

“The collection was inspired by the cool light of London, the energising light of Shanghai, and the optimistic light of the stories of the Silk Road. My fabrics are sourced in China, where my roots lie, and have been chosen because of their texture and colour. My collection reflects deeply who I am, and what I want every woman to be: beautiful on every occasion.”

As we nibbled canapes and helped ourselves to the fizzy, the models were strutting their stuff on the catwalk. All the while, Rebeca talked about the personalities and styles of the women modelling and explained why she chose each particular dress for them.

Overall the evening left me feeling positive. A reminder that we as women, are not just cut-outs or mannequins for any old high street chain.

While Rebeca’s designer glad rags aren’t cheap (especially not for a young journalist on a budget!), what I took away from it was the positive message and the idea that if I needed a frock for a special occasion, she would be the one I would contact.

Bespoke clothes with a hint of magic, Rebeca Li’s fashion does exactly what it says on the tin: “Fashion is for woman, not the other way round.”
