I never formally studied photography. I learned it on my own.

What are your favorite fashion designers and why?

My style constantly evolves, but BLESS is one of my favorite brands since I got into fashion in high school.  Before seeing BLESS’s clothes at a store in my home town, I had never seen any interesting clothes.  Their clothes struck me as really interesting and almost pieces of art. It was then that I realized that fashion is very beautiful and enjoyable.

In what other country would you like to live and do work with fashion?

I cannot really think of any other countries where I would like to live. Now I really like to living in NYC and I want to stay here as long as I can. 

What are your future plans?

I do not really know, but now I am doing what I like, so hopefully I will be able to keep doing what I like or find something new for the future.
