The collection is inspired by the Korean movie Hope which addresses violence and abuse of children and women. Featured design details here, such as safety pins and different sizes of chains, are used as trims and part of decorations. Black is the main color used to express the dark side of these issues. Shapes and lines are finished with stretch elastic to show contour. It reflects women’s confidence and braveness in facing danger.
The usage of lycra and sheer illusion shows a black three-dimensional feeling, wrapping up with silk elastic. Silver safety pins arrange on the front and the side front.
Trims are made of raw chains, three layers connecting with larger sizes of safety pins. Hanging towards the feet.
The back view reflects the front, as well as symmetrical. Back straps are crossover in the middle, supporting the garment to a stable condition.

Meet the Designer
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.
