Harbin, China native Sissi Hou was discovered in Shanghai upon graduating college. Legend has it her first boss, a senior manager at a corporate firm, submitted polaroids to a local agency and she was signed almost immediately.

Perhaps most significantly, Sissi starred in the inaugural launch campaign for Apple Watch, photographed by David Sims, and appeared on the cover of Net-a-Porter's The Edit, photographed by Victor Demarchelier. She has also appeared in the pages of the international editions of Vogue, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar, in addition to V, W, and Numéro, as well as special short film for DKNY x Opening Ceremony, and television commercial for Target.
Off-duty, Sissi is dedicated to providing necessary school supplies and other essential materials to underprivileged children in China. She also volunteered at the Beijing Olympics, and Shanghai expo. In her free-time, she enjoys reading, and practicing Chinese calligraphy.
