MINI INTERVIEW

How did you become interested in fashion design?
I was studying Fine Art as my major at Hunter College. When I became a junior, I came to the realization that I wanted to pursue something more practical, such as design. That's when I decided to transfer to Parsons. The fashion atmosphere at Parsons fascinated me, and I soon discovered that fashion could be a medium for expressing myself as well.

What’s your process for designing a new collection?
When designing a new collection, I will begin by swatching and traveling to find inspiration. My childhood memories are always a significant source of inspiration for me, as I consider that period the most valuable time in my life. Afterward, I will visit various factories to explore new techniques that I can incorporate into each season's designs.

What’s your design philosophy?
Stay true to yourself. :)

What’s your favorite fashion city?
TOKYO.

What’s your favorite color to work with?
Pastel colors.
