Sophia XinLi, the founder of fluidité, received a Master’s Degree in Architecture from Hunan University, China and then practiced as an architect in Shanghai and Hong Kong for more than 10 years.
During the early years of her career, whilst exploring the meaning of design, she witnessed her hometown, Zhuzhou, a typical industrial city, develop into a successful but emotionless concrete metropolis. The loss of the spiritual, emotional background to her childhood memories was deeply felt and so Sophia found her destiny - creating emotion in design.
Through her architectural design work and her interest in photography and art, Sophia became fascinated with how form, lighting and texture arouse human emotion - how physical objects can generate an expression of spirit.
In 2019, Sophia founded her fashion brand, FORME DE fluidité; a dedicated design business which interprets expression through space and form, to introduce artistic emotion and meaning to everyday life.
