During my childhood, my fashion story began with a Barbie doll. I didn’t exactly know what fashion was, but just playing with my grandma’s scarf makes me realize I loved the fabric and dressing up. I chose intimate apparel specialization because it attracted my eye the very first time I watched the Future of Fashion runway show and realized how it featured the beauty of a woman’s body. I also love working with lace and strength fabric. As a designer, my unique style is that I like to get inspiration from different areas in my design based on my international background. I think aesthetics have a lot of explanations, but for me, it is an appreciation from the first glance to details.
