“When I started this brand in 1998, I was absorbed with pursuing what I wanted to make, thinking back, I was unconcerned about society. But now, I’ve gotten older and creating has become more real –my mind has shifted more to clothes I want to wear and live my life in."
Just like plants grow leaves, like flowers turn to face the sun
We stand on to the ground reaching our arms towards the sky, to pick heavy ripe fruit
Fruit are the manifested memories of light, rain, and wind
Groundwork for the harvest starts in spring, as earth shines with new life and warmth
What we cultivate now determines the harvest of the future
