WHAT IS YOUR COLLECTION ABOUT? ANYTHING SPECIFIC IT WAS INPIRED BY?
My collection is composed of doodle prints I drew and colored personally by hand. The circular doodles represent the highs and lows I experienced in life, and the neon colors embody the highlights I've had in my life, so far. The collection really digs deep into my personal emotions, expressed in a simple but fun way.
WHAT WERE THE TECHNIQUES AND MATERIALS THAT YOU USED?
The mark of my collection is really my freehand drawing. I wanted to introduce variety to the usual prints. My silhouettes are actually very simple, so adding my drawings into the mix was a candid way of making the collection more interesting.
HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU LEARNED THE THEME IS "THE ART OF MOVEMENT?" HOW DOES "ART OF MOVEMENT" TRANSLATE TO YOUR COLLECTION?
I was so clueless at first! But I think my circular doodles represent movement at its simplest form.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE PIECE IN THE COLLECTION?
Definitely the black cropped top and a-line skirt combination which my muse will wear. I spent a whopping four days drawing on that skirt so I grew attached to it in a way.
PEFTA IS FAST-APPROACHING. HOW HAVE YOUR PREPARATIONS BEEN GOING, SO FAR?
I am still.. doodling to death!
WHAT SHOULD THE EXHIBIT GOERS EXPECT OF YOUR COLLECTION?
The message that I want to show exhibit goers is that art and fashion can be combined. Also, since my pieces are very playful, it shows that you don't have to be an artist or a designer to express yourself through art and clothes. Anyone can do it!
Watch out for the features of the other PEFTA winners in the following days.
