My designs are usually fantasy-led. I believe fashion is not all about silhouette, fabrication, or technique, it’s about storytelling, expressing emotions, and inspiration. My memory of a childlike imaginary world full of fun, has given me unlimited ideas to create. My yearning towards the fearlessness of innocent children has driven me to convey my thoughts through them, they are the ones who really see the truth. A Chinese proverb says, “Newborn calves are not afraid of the tiger”, they who know nothing, fear nothing. I envy their infinite imaginations and boldness of expression.  I want to convey to my audience an innocent feeling with a strange prologue for the unveiling of a fantasy.
