Before taking up formal fashion design courses, he was already designing for weddings and for friends. He describes that seeing a woman walk down the aisle with your design is such a unique and indescribable feeling. It has served as his inspiration — to make others happy with the design that he makes.

Travelling light has been a challenge for him. His friends teased him and challenged him to pack light when they went to a beach resort. He failed, but succeeded in thinking of a concept for this line!

His theme for his fashion line concentrates on making “convenient and functional and of course, fashionable” clothes, which is inspired by the beach. He showed us a mood board, and mentioned that he drew his inspiration from waves and the sand. The color scheme that he will be using will be colors associated with sunset.
