Although my life now is completely different from my childhood dreams, I couldn’t possibly be happier!

As a child growing up in China, my dream was to become a scientist, just like my idol Madame Marie Curie. With hard work and the support of my parents, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to come to the U.S. to pursue a Ph.D. in Pharmacology.

To offer you interesting and sophisticated styles
at an exceptional value.

However, in graduate school, I realized that my life’s passion wasn’t science, but rather in something that I’d always pursued as a hobby: fashion and design. I’d always designed and made clothes for myself and others, and it finally dawned on me that this was my true passion and that I would never be completely fulfilled as a scientist. So I left with an M.S.

In 1997, I entered Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco and majored in Fashion Design. I vowed to myself that I would someday own a business in the fashion industry.


Whether you're a size 2 or a size 16, you'll find clothes that reflect your style. Clothes that make you look good and feel good. Clothes that give you confidence.

In 2002, after working two years for other designers, I used up all my savings to open the store Shunzi in Petaluma. In 2005, I opened a second Shunzi on 4th Street, in the heart of San Rafael. The following year, my husband and I became the proud parents of a darling little boy. After our son’s second birthday, I opened a third Shunzi on Main St. in beautiful downtown Los Altos.

Although being a boutique owner in the beautiful Bay Area is something I never dreamed of growing up in China, I realize now that I’ve actually realized dreams that were deeper in me than even I knew at the time.
