PROFESSION –  Shoe Designer

BIO –Jilleen Liao was born in Taiwan, raised in San Francisco, and has lived and worked in New York City for over a decade. Liao’s interest in shoemaking began in 2007 with a New York fashion internship. As her footwear education continued to broaden, Liao worked at Autumn, a skate shop and a cultural hub in the East Village. A corporate design position soon followed, but the vision for Onto was already taking form. In 2015, Liao launched Onto as a way to make covetable products accessible to a wider audience.
