OUR HERITAGE

Renowned for his effervescent personality and entrepreneurial passion, Ronnie Li  is one of the best-loved names in the world of Ballroom dancing and acquired Chrisanne Clover in 2015.  But you won’t see his dazzling smile on the dance floor. Sure, at one time he had a go at competing, but he figured that his skills were better deployed in generating ideas and making things happen. Nowadays, based squarely on the business side of the footlights, he’s best known as Managing Director of Chrisanne Clover.

FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS… CRYSTAL CLOVER

Introduced to the world of dance in China by his uncle, China’s ballroom star Philip Li, Ronnie grew up in Shanghai. Captivated by the ambition, drive and glamour of the dancing world Ronnie decided to take a bold step and move to London in 1995, the dance capital of the world, where he developed his business management skills at the dancewear company, Choice London.

 

Ronnie instantly fell in love with the dance business ‘I got myself more and more into it, my involvement was not just to make money but to make friends and make it enjoyable for myself. I am a very open person and I love to meet people from all over the world. I used to like seeing my friends and then they would give me orders and it combined the two beautifully.’  

 

Ronnie Li’s first solo venture, Crystal Clover, had humble beginnings at a flat in Norbury, on the outskirts of London, but quickly spilled over into a shop nearby. In 2008, Crystal Clover Japan was born. By 2015, Ronnie Li had acquired Chrisanne, one of the best-known brands in the world of Ballroom dance; the two businesses merged to form Chrisanne Clover, a sparkling union that brought together innovation, knowledge, and heritage. In June the following year, the first Chrisanne Clover flagship store opened its doors in Shanghai.

 

Ronnie had known Chrisanne for many years. Although the two companies were competing in the same market Ronnie kept good relations with the Chrisanne team and prior to the merger the two businesses had in fact started to successfully work together on several projects. In 2015 the time was right for all parties, it was a textbook merger combining the strengths of two leading players in the industry and catapulting Ronnie into a number 1 position miles ahead of any other competitor.

CHRISANNE

Born from the frustration of sourcing fabrics to make dance dresses and the demand of the market, Chrisanne was born in 1986, set up by dancers Peter & Christina Dobner, and Hans & Anne Laxholm. Their combined knowledge and expertise became the early foundation of Chrisanne, and the basis for a corporate culture which focuses on dancers needs.  

 

‘When we first started out the dance dresses had just changed from tutu dresses to long and flowing dresses and nobody knew how to make that look, or where to source the fabric. This is where we stepped in...’ Peter 

 

A similar start as Crystal Clover, Chrisanne started in a 1 bedroom flat in Norbury but then grew rapidly to a head office and warehouse employing over 65 people and supplying dancing goods to more than 50 countries worldwide. This earned the business a place in the league of The Independents Top 100 companies in 1993 and 1995 as one of the fastest growing companies in the UK.  

 

 

THE HEART OF CHRISANNE CLOVER

‘We have a great team at Chrisanne Clover, I am lucky enough to have very loyal people who have been working with myself and Peter, supporting us and the company for many years. Now I have a bigger platform to make and meet more friends. The excitement of being able to talk to people thousands of miles away to not only get an order, but to also make a friend is a huge achievement for me. I am very lucky.’  Ronnie

 

Ronnie Li lives by the mantra “Do what you love and then throw yourself into it fully, never stop improving yourself and the business, never be satisfied with being second best and – above all – make sure you have fun on the way!” And if the pandemic has anything to go by, now more than ever it is important to love what you do and surround yourself with positivity.
