welcoming spring & interview with Liz Black

location: KSU (first time introducing you to my school
@ Kyungsung University )
until just about three days ago I could see the pretty cherry blossoms on every tree I passed by
now after some rainy days and interruptive weather,
they are around 40% gone already

며칠전까지 환하게 피어있더니
이젠 어느새 반정도는 다 떨어져있는 듯 싶네요
그래도 짧게나마 봄을 알리는 신호가 반가웠어요 :)

How did you first begin as a designer?

After graduating from Central Saint Martins College and featuring my Degree Collection
"Arty Society" in the College Press Show I've got a lot of attention from the media,
what encouraged me and reinforced my confidence to express my own artistic
so I started my own brand that gave me the freedom needed.

What does your brand demonstrate? in terms of the image, target etc.

Liz Black is a luxury womenswear label set up in 2010.
The brand reflects conceptual creativity with a minimal and elegant aesthetic.
Its focus is on wearable statement pieces with a timeless appeal, emphasising chic and impeccably tailored structures that complement the feminine silhouette. The Liz Black woman is sophisticated,
independent and cosmopolitan. She is a daring yet elegant dresser,
an intellectual and empowered woman, with a successful, busy lifestyle that demands
innovative designs of the highest quality. The Liz Black woman has a strong passion for design
and a keen eye for quality. She is an elegant dresser and an intellectual and empowered woman,
with a busy lifestyle.

How does the inspiration come? Do you pair items in an unexpected way or wearble version for customers?

Inspiration is in the air! When something obsesses me I take that subject as a starting point.
I do a lot of research and reading. I regularly visit museums and art galleries. Then all start
coming together. Most important of all I trust my own vision to create a new collection.

Do you have some ultimate style rule?

Yes I do. I only wear clothes that I feel confidence on and I wore it on my own way.

In your opinion, what makes the finishing touch to one's outfit?

Individuality and killer shoes!

Any message for readers?

Don't be afraid to stand out!!!
