Thank you for visiting my website. This website showcases my most recent work of 2016.

The key inspiration behind my work in 2016:
Eastern elements such as SAMURAI, ORIGAMI, and BUDDHISM.

As in origami, the designs were born of a blank sheet of paper. They develop as the blank space is gradually filled with repeating straight fold lines. I have manipulated patterns by folding them to create more constructive silhouettes and dominant linear details by employing folded edges. The main idea of the structure of the design was to mimic samurai armour, which is sturdy and linear. However, in contrast to the sharp silhouette, the colours and the details are often soft and feminine as if a mellow vulnerability hides beneath the rigid surface of the armour.
