"My fondness for clothes is not the only reason I want to do fashion design. Clothes are a tool for self-expression. As a worthless stone becomes shinier by continuously cutting the surface, everyone has the right and the ability to become beautiful with the right techniques. I want to provide an easy way for women who are not satisfied with their looks to feel better, to feel proud and beautiful. I get inspirations from the unique things that come from different approaches to various materials, whether it’s through architecture, painting, sculpture, or nature. Also, a fusion of different cultures always inspires me and opens up a unique pathway to the fashion world. I want people to feel happiness and satisfaction through clothes I make for their daily life. "
