1. When did you realize you wanted to become a designer?
In my university, the major of fashion design need to has second exam. During preparing the exam, I found myself fell in love with this major which let me express myself well. At that time, I realized I wanted to be a fashion designer.
2. What is your ultimate dream job?
I want to found my own brand. I think this is almost designers’ dream job. I think myself is a girl with different idea with others, design is the best way to show who I am. So I want to do something I like, want to share with others. What’s more, clothes in my mind is not only clothes, I hope it will be a platform to meet more people who have the similar Interest with me.
3. What inspired your designs for the LYCRA® Future Designers award?
I think the most relaxing moment can make good work. So I shot from the nature, using the most clear, fresh nature blue, plus the lines of the nature, to create a relaxed atmosphere, foiling the whole collection.
4. If you win, what do you hope to achieve within 12 months?
After all, I am an undergraduate student; I think I still have so many things to study out of school. Fashion design is not a major to use one day to master it, like Rome is not built in a day. So I hope to enter in a large company which style is similar with my brand’s to work and learn for a period of time, so that I can take charge of the whole operation process about the fashion industry company. If it is necessary, I hope I can go abroad to see the different scenery and have a look at diversity culture.
5. What other projects are you working on at the moment?
I just finished my undergraduate final design. And now I am an intern at Elegant-Prosper Company in Shanghai.
6. Tell us a random fact about yourself, or… a secret that no one knows about you (yet!):
I am an out-going person who always is curious about every funny thing. It would show on my design, in the next question I would like to share something with you. In the meanwhile, I am a competitive boyish girl; I regard myself as a boy to achieve the dream in the future. I hope to be a real man during difficult times, be committed to resolving problems, but also lighten up and ride the waves of impermanence.
7. Is there anything else you would like to share?
I would like to share a part of my portfolio with you.
