"It's like invading the cute world from the inside. Visualize inspiration from 'words' with the main theme of 'invisible.'" - from the website
Clothes are a suit of armor, which is the smallest personal space for me. As a designer, I design clothes that can walk together with the hearts of someone who can be cowardly to show one’s self, so that my clothes help them become stronger just by wearing them.
When I was young, I got out of the room and saw the starry sky from the window in the hospital corridor. It was beautiful. We know the beauty of looking up the freedom while being restricted. We are obsessed with “wanderlust” as we think of a free journey in the restriction of COVID-19. I have put my hopes in this collection to go find the Polaris to continue the journey of life.
Please share a bit about your journey to choose a career in fashion? Where did you choose to study or, if self taught, how did you gain your skills?
I have not made or studied about clothes at all until I launched my brand ‘isxnot’, and did not attend any fashion school. I am still studying on the Internet whenever I come across challenging tasks.
One day, I thought, "I don't have anything left."
I didn't have anything to lose because I didn’t have anything from the beginning. From then, I decided to do what I wanted to do. Since I was little, I liked fashion and clothes and therefore, I chose this path without hesitation.
Every day is the best moment. Although it was my very first attempt filming my collections in the form of video, it was very exciting when the clothes of the story in my head took shape in the video with the help of videographers. But more than anything, meeting someone who wears the clothes I made and when they happily talk what they like about isxnot's clothes is very exciting no matter how many times I experience it.
As you can see, ‘isxnot’ has "x" in between words "is'' and "not". It means that there is no extra space in between and there should not be any extra thing in the world. "x" itself expresses the X mark; meaning "isn't". “INVISIBLE THING” is the main theme of the brand and it also comes from the same belief that there is no extra space i.e., the invisible thing.
I put together my hopes into my clothes that they will walk along with the heart of someone. There were clothes that I couldn't get out of the house without wearing them, just as there are songs that you cannot sleep without. Since then, clothes are like armour, that is the smallest personal space for me. I consider myself, the foremost customer of isxnot. I design clothes that ‘I’ love and ‘I’ want, nonetheless, I believe and I wish that they can be the courage for the ones who are weak and are afraid of stepping out of the house.
All my looks are my favorite, but if I was to choose one, I made shoes for the first time in this collection! Although there is much more that I need to improve on, I promise that it will be ready to excite all my customers by the time I deliver them. The zip dress with pleated hem has the matching color with the boots. I hope that you enjoy them as a set.
