Can you point out one good and one bad memory of this year spent at Central Saint Martins?
A good memory of studying at CSM is the surprise party we did for David Kappo’s birthday at school. It reminded me that I am glad to study, and to share happy moments with my classmates who always inspire me because of their different ways of thinking. One of my bad memories is losing my purse after lunch at school. For international students, being moneyless is probably the worst situation. Fortunately, after 2 weeks, someone as nice as an angel brought my red purse to the reception. I still don’t know who it was.
What was the main inspiration for your collection?
Whenever I get the feeling of being treated like a product or an object, in my society, I feel a sense of humiliation and loneliness. In Korean, the atmosphere of society forces women to follow a set of rules which makes me feel like being inside a vacuum packed bag. This feeling inspired my final collection.
