Growing up in an immigrant family, I was taught to strive for careers that were deemed “successful”. However, I was always creative and constantly sought out artistic ways to express myself. I’ve studied industrial design, which felt too restricted; as well as fine arts, but disliked the sense of ambiguity and uncertainty. Fashion design was the perfect medium for me to explore my imagination yet also tie me to reality. Knitwear design challenges me in a technical sense through the importance of a garment from fiber to the finished piece, which provides even more opportunities for creative expression. My designs have elements of traditional silhouettes and structure alongside unorthodox details.
