His designs are currently in the finalists for the Italy Vogue young fashion designer award and has been used for a preview for the up coming movieGhost in the shell“. About his “Captivity” collection he declares: “What the beauty of being caged is like? I expressed the restriction to the beauty and the desire to monopolize beauty.”

“I wish to communicate to the world my view of it through the fashion media. To break out of conformity, I first absorb the traditional styles but always create something new that holds the intricate balance between the two. Whatever the fabric I use, I want my clothes to be minimalistic but have a strong impact, and to aim for the refined fashion. Times are changing. It is a never stopping process that develops and metomorphizes. I hold a high regard for tradition, for without it our world would not have grown into what it is now. After absorbing the classical traditions, the future appeared in my mind. A human beings urge for adventure cannot be suppressed, thus I chose to break away from tradition. From the ruins, a sapling can at last grow. A new way of thinking, a new notion, a new world.”
