I’m forever seeking answers to who I am and why I am, which is an endless journey. I’m emotional, passionate and believe in dreams. I always attracted by human emotion and sensibility, which are the driving force behind my design. Everyone is different, and every collection has its own story. Yet, my style is clear. As a fashion designer, I design from the starting point of protection, both physically and mentally. Everyone has something to hide, and the most sensual thing is what you hide. I want people who wear my clothe to have the choice to show or to hide their fragilities, which is so beautiful to me, and be happy.
