Honestly I never thought I’d be the one writing blogs. When I first moved to the US, I was crying everyday after class because I don’t understand English and my homework seems impossible. One day I came to the office talking to my teacher about withdrawing the class he followed up with a long email telling me why I shouldn’t quit. Maybe just a simple thought of not disappointing him, I didn’t quit, I sit in front roll everyday and passed that class. From that point I believe I can do anything if I try, it’s never too late to start as long as you don’t quit.
I never thought I did anything special but almost everyday someone asks me: “how did you do that”. I came from a small Chinese City where nobody knows the name, now I call NYC and Tokyo home.
My ancestors are nomads, maybe it’s in my blood, but traveling makes me feel alive. I never regret hitting the road no matter how bumpy it is. But hopefully I can make yours not so bumpy.
It is 100% true what I told my job interviewers, fashion is my passion and I simply want to see the happy faces when every girl puts on her favorite outfit. I didn’t have much growing up, so I put a lot of effort to put together each outfit to make them special. Over time,I developed my style.
Art is love of my life, I didn’t start painting till about 3 years ago, and I didn’t know they will turn out like real painting neither, all I know is every paint I made came with story and my real emotions. Even though I don’t have any knowledge of colors, lights, compositions, I believe what comes from the heart is beautiful. Hopefully you can feel what I feel when you saw them.
Maybe I watched too many Disney Movies and live on the cloud for too long, like many girls with a fashion designer dream. But i managed to stay on the cloud. I’m lucky life wasn’t easy.
I am a happy to share all the things I learned from all the mistakes I made.
