About:

I have dreamed about being a fashion designer for so many years.I have taken a fancy to functional clothing with street style after studying menswear design.The reason why chose menswear design is I am in love with the details, cutting and silhouette in menswear design. Also, menswear has become popular these years and it has become a trend. I am interested in suit tailoring indeed and I think it is worth to pass down to the next generation. What’s more, it is a challenge for me as I had not access to any knowledge about menswear before studying menswear design, it looks fresh to me. In this three years, the most valuable thing is learning how to control the balance between exaggerated design and commercial design. My career goal is I hope I can use my own design to help others. Design to me is a way to express my opinion about myself and social issues. It is also a strategy to solve people’s problems, like people who wear functional clothing to climb mountains. Fashion design is not only express the powerful techniques, we must like a doctor who give solutions to people. We are different from being a artist.I hope I can create my own brand after graduating from university and I hope my brand could expand to overseas in the future.I am a creative,self-motivated and positive-thinking person,I believe my personality are suitable for this field.

Psy’s Redress Design Award collection ‘A.D.H.D’ draws inspiration from her personal journey living with attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder. Through the use of zero-waste, upcycling and reconstruction techniques, she pieces together secondhand clothing, knitwear and suits, and industry surplus, damaged textiles and yarns in a textured contrasting palette of yellow and black, symbolising the coexistence of hyperactivity in a world of ‘normal’ people. Psy’s design philosophy is to always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect. - “Through my designs I like exploring new solutions for fashion that have the potential to change consumption behaviours, limit the negative environmental impacts of the fashion industry. I enjoy finding beauty in things that are odd and imperfect.” - Psy Lau
