When I first learn drawing, I’ve been told that I’m very sensitive about colours. Why not use my advantage to drive my design path? Even though the colour choice was decided long time ago, but that doesn’t mean I have to use it. It might change to something else, or it might be narrow down to one or two colours. I love to try different ways, but follow the trend is also important, it helps keeping me in the right path. Exploring as much as I can but never go too far.
Researches much be going with my ideas at the same time. Lucky enough it was just after fashion weeks that I start searching new trendy designs that fits my colour choice. In my sketchbook you can easily see how these colours goes together, and how similar my inspiration was with those trendy designs. I found it fun to connect history armer with modern days fashion design. At the same time, the theme is highly relevant to the key word – “protection”.
Doing something with my hand keeps my brain think clearly all the time, when I was resting, I think of a name for the project, and choose ancient English to wrote it down, did a little embroidery. NEATO was the name I came out, because I wish my design can be neat, creative, and understandable by the audience.
