I feel there are many different elements inside myself that contribute to the creation of a collection. I create the collection when these differing elements accumulate to such a point that they form into one exceptional vision or idea.
These elements are the following :
Art, Architecture, Music, Ambient Sound / Noise, Travel, Emotional Communication and my own internal creative urge. The aim is not only to create simply “clothing” but rather, to create and contribute to a person’s total life-style and existence.It’s a similar process to making a movie and a very sacred and profane thing. Sometimes the world of my imagination and vision becomes frayed and broken-down, chaotic and corrupt, the stillness sunk beneath loud vibrational noise, the purity and destruction contained within every Pilgrim.Its a sharp and metallic industrial mayhem.
Black is always the base of my creative palette. “Black” symbolizes the Avant-Garde and has a deep spiritual and noble meaning for me. I am obsessed by the image of “Black” in Japanese Religion , in Zen. It represents the crazy darkness hidden in the shadows away from the light. It is the total color of complete and utter grief.
