For the second time, Claudia Li partnered with Teva for New York Fashion Week. The designer customized Teva’s iconic Indio Jewel style, a bold and sporty platform, with hand beaded embellishments for her Fall / Winter 2020 runway show.

The footwear complimented the collection that showcased updated brand staple silhouettes and new fabrics that were inspired by Claudia’s memories of shopping at street markets in China with her grandfather.
