Anna Sui is a second-generation Chinese-American born in Detroit, Michigan. By the time she was four years old, Sui knew she wanted to be a fashion designer. When she was a teen, she read an article in Life Magazine about the achievements of Mia Fonssagrives-Solow who graduated from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City and then moved to Paris. She then moved to New York and attended Parsons. “You have to focus on your dreams, even if they go beyond common sense. How could this young girl from the suburbs of Detroit become a success in New York?! it was always that dream.” She says.
