I have a taste for discovering unusual things in the world. These unusual things inspire me to think boldly and not be trapped in a defined world. In my opinion, an object doesn’t have only one definition. Instead, each object is multi-faced. I’m obsessed with making unconventional things be my inspiration. Discovering its different aspects and blending that into my philosophies. My audience will have more than one feeling when they see my collections. In my aesthetic, I am pursuing a perfect balance between sophisticated sexiness and playful innocence. The silhouettes show modern lifestyle and femininity, the structures present sensuality, and the details project novelty. My collections show cute youth in a seductive and elegant way.
