8CUFF will present her new collection at FASHIONCLASH Festival on Saturday July 2 Show 3 19:00. You can get your tickets here.
When did you realise you wanted to be a fashion designer?
Two years ago, when I realised that I can communicate through the collection.
What are your main achievements in your career at this moment?
I used to run a bar and a cafe before studying fashion.
How would you define fashion?
Who are your artistic influences or inspirations and why?
Everyone around me or I encounter, the fact that individual have different idea and perspective inspires me in all kinds of way.
Finding your own voice is difficult, where and how do you find your personal creativity (before you start designing; during the design process)?
I think I am still learning that, I try to think of an object from what I have seen (movie, book, news anything!! ) and reflect myself as well as the world that I'm living in and infuse and justify my opinion on it.
What challenges did you face during the design process?
Literally having no idea when you really need to activate your brain.
Can you tell us something about the project you will present at the FASHIONCLASH Festival?
The collection's title is Surreal Obsession, which is visioning about uncertainty, anxiety, false desire and obsession.
What does your collection try to communicate (what is it about)?
Our loop of being anxious about something we desire and we follow the path with shit loads of questions which is normal to be, its the human nature because the world we live in is fucked up, and it will never change.
