About the Designer

Christina Liedtke is the Founder and Creative Director of ASTOURI, a multifunctional, travel friendly women’s ready-to-wear brand. Christina’s innovative approach pushes the limits in design and the imagination:


“When I started ASTOURI, I wanted to fill a void I felt for women with stylish on-the-go apparel. I was constantly traveling, going from one place to the next, and always overpacking or needing a change of clothes to go from meetings to events. Also, throughout my travels and cities I have lived in, I could never find a brand or even items that spoke to me as a female and also the city I was living in or visiting. I kept seeing t-shirts and hoodies. As a stylish professional, I wanted something more feminine, functional, valuable and gave me a sense of connection so ASTOURI was started.”


With an extraordinary eye for curating beautiful details and style with exquisite fit and drape, Christina has spent almost 20 years in fashion design and also in corporate strategy in the beauty and fashion industries. As a previous owner of her luxury women’s clothing business, Christina understands the importance of making women feel beautiful and complimented in their apparel and accessories by providing the right fit, fabrics, and fabulousness.

“The inspiration and philosophy behind my creativity and design is both thought provoking and emotional. I look at how design can transform and redefine meanings in our lives whether it be in fashion or art. What’s most prevalent to me in design is the emotional purpose and intent behind the story and how long the story will last. The longer the story lasts, the more meaning and change comes from the design. Our tendency as humans to remember things that captivated us and changed our thinking and/or behavior is the foundation of my design. It can be as simple as transforming our basics in our wardrobe to creating wearable memories.”
