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“.

“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.”
