Q: Why did you choose the intimate industry? What do you find interesting about this industry?
After finished my higher diploma in fashion design, I really want to explore and discover more different aspect in this fashion industry. Luckily, I got a chance to study the BA (Hons) degree at the same school, so I decided to study intimate apparel rather than fashion design.
Nowadays, many intimate apparels can also become outerwear for women. I believe a nice design and good quality lingerie items can improve women’s confident. So, I want to combine my design knowledge in woven design into an intimate design, in order to create more attractive lingerie which can also wear for a party or go out with friends.
Q: What will your dream job be? Where do you see yourself in 5 years, 10 years?
I want to become an “all-rounder fashion designer “in the future. Based on my working experience and my knowledge, I dream to become a fashion designer who can design different collection, no matter is lingerie, sportswear or womenswear. I don’t want to limit myself in design because I believe my collection can be able to tell my story and my thought to my customer. Also, I want to produce and styling the fashion editorial as much as I can. Therefore, become an “All-rounder” is my goal to achieve.
Q: Do you plan to create your own brand?
Yes, I have dream about it and working very hard on it right now.

Q: What inspire you to create this collection? What is the story behind your collection?
My collection is inspired by the French romance movie called “Blue is the warmest color”.
For my collection, it is talking about an arty lesbian story, two girls grew up together, hang out together. And fell in love with each other. Their world changed completely, the powerful attraction and blazing love and desire are occupied their body and mind. In this seemingly perfect world of these two girls, due to the difference, in reality, their first awakening of love will never be accepted by other.
The message behind my collection is trying to say, “every relationship has its own helplessness and sadness”. Actually, everyone just wants a stable relationship. We should not deny or blame other’s choices, there is no difference between all of us. Basically, we are all the same.
Just like the line from the movie — ” Love has no gender. Take whoever loves you. “
