Forbes has just released its annual 30 Under 30 Asia list featuring 300 impressive young entrepreneurs, and Filipino-Chinese-Taiwanese Preview girl Ann Louie Li made the cut!
Founder of AnnLouieLi.com, Ann is (at 22!) the youngest to be included in the list's “The Arts” category and the third youngest amongst megawatt Asian celebrities like Liu Wen, Jessica Jung, Eric Nam, and Kris Wu.
Born in Thailand, former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Ann currently splits her time attending prestigious fashion events between Taipei, Manila, and Paris. With a million-strong social media following, you'd think that Ann ought to be content with resting on her laurels, but nothing could be more wrong—she's the founder of Chrysogem, a wholesale distribution company focused on providing high quality chrysocolla to high jewellery brands. Talk about business-savvy.
Ann is also the founding ambassador of IMPCT, an award-winning global social enterprise dedicated to building the future of early education in urban slums. What a girl!
Hailed by Vogue Taiwan as June 2016's It Girl of the Season and having done collaborations with Kenzo, Marimekko, and Calvin Klein, Ann is no doubt a fashion force to be reckoned with. Add internships with Roberto Cavalli and Emanuel Ungaro to all that, too, BTW. Plus, a page on her Instagram editing techniques in Preview Magazine's July 2015 issue!
Congratulations, Ann! You're every stylish girl's role model. Check out Forbes' full 30 Under 30 Asia 2017 list here!
