Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.

Chinese traditional philosophy emphasizes the concept of "valuing and making the best use of resources," which encourages individuals to cherish their possessions and utilize them in the most appropriate manner. This value system provides valuable insights for the contemporary sustainable fashion. I firmly believe in the wisdom of simplicity embodied by the ancient Chinese sages, which continues to guide my creative practices.
