As previously mentioned, I have been fascinated by people and how they dress for a long time.
For the story, my grandfather from Vietnam got recruited by the French army during the second world war. He spent months on a ship from Vietnam to France taking care of the soldiers’ uniforms. Following his arrival in France, he never got back home and started a small tailoring shop in Paris.
I don’t think that I always aspired to make clothes my career, it’s a passion for sure but I enjoy clothes as a form of expression. Like most people my age I am sensitive to trends but I do not consider myself to be a fashion freak.
My initial goal in life was in advertising and digital branding.
When creating an impact became my priority in life, I looked back at my career and had to accept that my expertise still lied in clothing and that I would probably contribute more in that field than others.
There’s a lot of things that I would like to learn, roles I would like to have but today it’s not about me anymore, we’re running out of time and it’s our responsibility to use our knowledge and expertise to drive change asap.
