Yicong Li is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary fashion artist from Beijing, China. She utilizes her background in the two vastly different cultures, challenging the boundaries of fashion through masquerades and sculptural forms around the body. Exploring her interest in the masquerade cultures around the world, Yicong dedicates herself to creating a safe and equal space for the wearer, in which the masquerades would eliminate the physical feature of human bodies and add the characteristics of fabulous abstractions. Furthermore, Yicong believes in generating a utopia-like “society” with her works. By wearing her pieces, the wearer would have the freedom and opportunity to communicate and channel their inner selves.
