About his collection.....
Inspired by the french novel “La Dame aux camelias” which is a love story of prostitute.
I was so impressed the heroine’s way to live as a girl.
It was so sophisticated, elegant, independent and pure.
On the other hand, it was also about a prejudice.
At the same time, i was interested in the artwork of Lee Bontecou which is mixed an organic and a technology.
To express the feeling,
i tried to combine them together and use lace as a classic and make it modern, sharp, active and strong mixing with a line from industrial design like car, ship and space ship and art deco as a technology to show a differnet impression which we have in general.
Also i treated a lace stiff by a resin and tried to make a volume with it.
