The fabrics I've used for this collection are full of history, making each garment completely unique. I've created reversible jackets and trousers using up-cycled vintage kimonos, and the buttons were all handmade with old coins from Taiwan and Japan. Sustainability is fully embedded in my collection thanks to the use of zero-waste practices. All the garments have been created from up-cycled fabrics and materials, and I also created my own natural dyes using the skin of discarded fruits from farmers.
The inspiration for this collection came from my own background and the history. I've combined the traditional Japanese aesthetics of Wabi Sabi, which illustrates the beauty in imperfection, with a hint of Taiwanese aboriginal folk culture.
Most of my first hand researches are from my family vintage album and the vintage fashion weekly from 1910s to 1940s.
