Throughout my life, I've struggle a lot because of my queer identity. I realized that the identity is not so welcomed by everyone at very young age. Related childhood memories changed my personality a lot and lead me to have the tendency of dealing with all the emotions myself. Long term effects was that I do not know how to express how I feel anymore and it limits my ability to feel. From that, I decided to deliver all the words I want to speak out and the emotions I want to express from my works.
In my collection, I combined a lot of my past work that talks about my emotions into the garments. Also, flowers and ruffles are essential elements to represent the feminine part of me. A flower to me is something that is exquisite for such a short moment but dies relatively fast, which is how I see all my relationships and happy memories. The silhouette and style of the garments are the projection of how I want people to see me. The whole atmosphere of the collection is quite feminine as menswear but still masculine for the most part. That is the balance I want to keep with myself. I hope people who have the same identity or struggle with me can
find their most comfortable balance and way to express themselves.
