Hello, my name is Simon Li.


I am the owner of Simon Sample Room, a New York based apparel manufacturer dedicated to making beautiful womenswear with shorter lead times.


Having been running my business for over 20 years now, my production portfolio spans vast across the womenswear industry. I offer production services to emerging and established designers, crafting premium quality clothing customers can’t resist.


Past clients have included the likes of Brandon Maxwell and much more. Feel free to read some lovely testimonials from them.


I got my start in apparel manufacturing at the tender age of 14, offering tailoring services to families in rural China. And so, I naturally made my way to New York’s garment district when I immigrated to the States in 1992. For the next 5 years, I learned the ropes of running an efficient garment factory until I opened my own factory in 1997. I had found my calling.


Feel free to get in touch if you need help with anything apparel manufacturing related– I know a thing or two.
