Brand information / About the designer
―What inspired you to become a fashion designer? Describe developments leading up to the brand launch.
From learning art painting to a fashion designer, I convey the fashion in artistic expression through my annual personal art exhibition. The concept of my clothing comes from people and the elements of my painting.
―What is the brand’s concept? What do you want to communicate through fashion designing? What are the images of men and women you want to project?
I combine the clothing with social issues and fashion trends according to pop art. I believe that dressing with a fashionable attitude will bring people happiness. I hope the true image of every single man and woman is to be honest to themselves, and this is also a lifestyle I am expecting.
―What is your source of inspiration in creating fashion? What is your process of developing a design concept?
The inspiration comes from the definition and extension of different theme, which is mixed with various elements, space and dimensions by arts. The process of development and design are exciting, and it is also a kind of my self-achievement and self-exploration.
