I wanted to share this design I made for the longest time that I thought I already posted a blog about it. I just realized now that I haven't yet! Haha! This design I thought about entering a contest but since I don't have my "Winning Streak" anymore it hasn't had it's chance to be appreciated. LOL. But kidding aside, this design I made is one of my most favorite and meaningful designs I've ever done. I made this during a very reflective period of my life. As I felt the overwhelming questions in mind... it reflected on my designs thinking about life questions about nature and how everything falls into place whether it may be good or bad.
I have always been in love with Hokusai's Paintings. They are iconic and simply beautiful. Honusai's paintings capture the simplicity and the harmony in nature that's why I never get tired looking at them. I actually send Hokusai Painting postcards to friends everytime I'm in Japan... I just simply think it's the best visual I can share to anyone who would like to experience Japan. Hehe.

Although I must admit this concept is not my original idea... I'm really into fabric printing in different kinds of styles and mediums. I must admit I fell in love with John Galliano's Suzurka-San coat, I felt the higher sense of art and fashion in the execution and panache. So much that I wanted to make something of my own... in my own silhouette and my own aesthetic... something younger and more whimsical with a dash of street style. It is an honor to be inspired but such magnificent masterpiece.
