WHY

The personal inspiration of Spring/Summer 2013 collection stems from kitchen, the things from kitchen, shape, textile, mood, even the silhouette of apron,which we use and touch every day. Like cooking, I am trying to design a collection by using different material,colour tone with elongate silhouette. To create a cool, fresh,tough image of women.
