Can you point out one good and one bad memory of this year spent at CSM?
The best thing is that I have been able to work with and learn from many talented teachers and students! A bad memory is that I was ashamed to go and face David [Kappo] whenever I did a bad job.
What was the main inspiration for your collection?
My inspiration came from an eye operation I did one year ago. When my cornea was lifted from eyes, I found out that I was seeing a different world. After the operation, I became blind for a day and a night, and relied on ears and hands to feel the world. My retina became a huge network, and shaped my world with red and blue things. The Blue was the quiet me, that kept on talking to people; and the Red was the passionate me, singing loudly inside my body. I tried to draw both — one is big, simple, soft and blue, the other is small, complex, hard and red. So I did this collection to show my fantasy dream.
