GET TO KNOW DONOH.
- Who do you look up and admire?
My grandfather, I deeply cherish the memories I’ve had with him when I was a child. He’s someone who instilled in me much of the manners and shared perspective of the world, having been fascinated at a young age seeing his garments from his business trips to Italy and Lacoste Tennis shirts from France. I always looked up to his sense of style that carried sense of timelessness. He’s special to me because he overcame a staggering amount of turbulence from the war. His outlook he had with humility during his childhood through colonization. With deep admiration to his perseverance that is a quality I attribute much towards who he was in his regal demeanor.

- What if anything did you learn about yourself this past year of covid?
That life shouldn’t be taken for granted, and most of what we have in the simplest of gestures can be some of the most special places we go back to ,only to recognize them once they're gone. I believe that the mark on human-centeredness in regards to survival especially in a capitalistic world, is problematic in many ways. Particularly during a time that was and still to an extent very uncertain for many families and children undergoing difficult situations. It felt highly introspective and reflective to figure out what truly matters and that wise actions towards being kind to others although sounds naive, does in fact make an impactful difference for someone else’s life.
- Is there anything you wished you would come back (or leave and never return in fashion?
I find that when a great suit made by a particular designer, or one of a kind patterns stands out in a unique gesture, it more than likely makes me intrinsically not want to part ways with it. Even if it’s just a clean black silhouette it catches my eye in a certain light. Those moments of feeling great in a garment really become special because as the model one is making the clothes present themself through the image of eloquence, minimalism, or the visions that are sacred to each and every designer.
