“One summer in grade school my dad said, “Why don’t you take sewing lessons to hem our pants?” because our entire family is petite. They signed me up and I learned basic sewing and would hem my parents’ pants. From then on, I continued going and that’s how I started to love making clothes. I’m actually really bad at drawing. When I went to FIDM and submitted my portfolio, the recruiter asked, “Are you sure you want to go into fashion design? Because your illustrations aren’t very good and you will need to take illustration classes.” I told her, “I know I can’t draw good, but I love creating things and I know how to make them, and that’s what counts.” You can’t wear an illustration, but you can wear what I create. Although my sketches weren’t good, I would get some of the best scores in the class for sewing and designing elaborate garments. But can I draw? Not really! I lived in LA for six years and designed children’s and women’s clothing for various companies. However, my husband received a job opportunity back home and we decided to raise our son in Hawaii. For the style, I love women’s contemporary. I still wanted to be in the fashion industry and had experience going to shows because when I would design clothes, I would also attend them to sell the designs. Now I’m doing the opposite and buying them. I want to provide clothes that are not really high-end because I know Hawaii people want affordable clothes and I know a lot of boutiques are really expensive. For me it’s always been a challenge to find clothes, especially pants. Sleeves are always too long on me, and I just find ways to alter or style it to fit me. In Hawaii, there’s many people that are short like me, so when they try things on, I’m like, Oh, you can just do this, and I try to style them, and that’s what I enjoy doing. Many times I’ll go to a show and when I come back, some of my clothes will have a few wrinkles. So for the next show I’m steaming them again. My family will see me steaming and say, It looks fine! But to me, I feel like presentation is everything. Other people might think I’m overdoing it, but I believe if I want to succeed, I have to take that extra step.” @the.mauve.fox
