David Hsieh


I am originally Taiwanese, but have been living in China for more than eight years now. I run my own creative studio in Dongguan, right in the heart of China's main footwear region, where I focus on helping Chinese companies to create international brands.


I graduated from London College of Fashion and lived in Europe for almost twenty years, working as designer for companies like Adidas, Benetton, Clarks and Murtosa.  


I have a very large network in China and take care of factory visits for The Footwearists, as well as training for the Chinese domestic market.


 I do this together with my wife Erica Li who is a highly experienced sourcing manager.
