In the latest of Rent the Runway’s “Closet Close-Ups” videos, Anna Sui recalls the moment she first knew she wanted to design.

“When I was about four years old, I went to New York with my parents,” she tells Rent the Runway fashion director Lucy Sykes. “We were driving around, and I told them, ‘When I grow up I’m going to be a fashion designer and live in New York.'”

Wish granted! In the clip above, Sui takes Sykes to her colorful showroom, sharing looks from the latest collections. Watch to hear more, and to learn about Sui’s unlikely fashion icons.
