grand apple & Isaiah Garza interview

met up with my friends Michael & Youlia (from )
for some catch-ups and went to my favorite buffet at the moment called Grand Apple

친한 친구 마이클과 율랴언니와 오랫만에 만나
그동안 밀렸던 얘기들도 하고 요즘 제일 좋아하는 부페
그랜드 애플 다녀왔어요~

grand apple is located in Hanssem flagship store in Busan, CentumCity

그랜드애플은 센텀시티점 한샘에 위치되어 있습니다

my outfit details

H&M hat, dress
LOVCAT (c/o firstlook) bag
CHANEL wedge heels

& here is the interview in English for Isaiah Garza
(seen in 1stlook blog here: )

한글 인터뷰는 퍼스트룩 공식 블로그에서 확인하실수 있습니다!

we would love to hear about how the launching of the brand began

Well I actually first started my "brand" back in 2009 by creating custom gowns for clientele/celebrities.
I first gained my big break when I was in a huge design competition by Cotton Incorporated.
I was competing against top designers who had tons of experience, I had very little experience
at this time and I won. This is when the press started noting that I'm a future talent in the industry.
After doing gowns for quite sometime, I moved into jewelry/accessories because of the economy.
I first created my jewelry line last year and have had amazing reviews since.

Is there a distinctive feature seen in your collection?

It's a lot of bold pieces, skulls, crosses and heavy chains. Feel like it's so appropriate for the industry right now with relevance and a taste of the future.

what kind of image is Isaiah Garza customers?

The Isaiah Garza customer is someone who isn't afraid to express themselves with what they wear.
They don't hold back, they are tastemakers and aren't followers. An Isaiah Garza customer can walk in a room and what they are wearing will probably do enough talking for them.
Most of all they NEVER blend in with the masses!

What do you foresee the trend for this S/S 12?

Definitely a return to grunge I've always just had such an edgy side to me.
I think edgy is so saturated/watered down in the fashion industry right now.
It's hard to dod it right, but I feel like I got a great response and it's a hit.

Last message is do what you want and don't listen to what anybody else says. I got this far by trusting myself
and keeping a focus on the end goal. If you don't plan all the way to the end you can only get
so far. The power of self-belief will make all your dreams come true.
