Get to Know VFW Designers Inae Sung & Andre Kao

Here’s another round of Q&As with two more designers that will be showcasing at our Spring/Summer 2018 event!

Inae Sung

Inae Sung, creator behind the brand OLOH, uses a creative mix of colours, textures and styles to enhance every piece in her line. Being a recent graduate from a London college with a Bachelor in Fashion Design and Technology, we can’t wait to see what this womenswear designer brings to our runway.

VFW: What colours are you drawn to work with more than others?

Inae: At this time, BLUE.

VFW: Thoughts on ruffles?

Inae: I’ve found that the ruffle of this season is the starting point of the neutral item. At this moment, I have been thinking that the ruffle is the best example of a feminine atmosphere. But, I think everybody has a feminine side and a masculine side at the same time. When I mix materials or ideas that are active and sometimes masculine, a romantic and loving atmosphere is also created.

VFW: How do you handle your stress?

Inae: I like to have time be completely alone, to separate myself, so I see my stresses behind me. For example, I will have a bath on a day that is not well solved. I separate myself from the space, leave tired moods and worries in front of the bathroom door and try not to think of them. I focus on feeling the temperature, the incense and the quietness. After that, when I go out again, my tired mood disappears and it’s like my first thoughts were not such a big issue. Sometimes, I am able to find a solution with different view. This is how I adjust to the stress I have in a simple and short time every day.

Andre Kao

Striking patterns and structures are only part of what makes up Andre Kao’s label. With designs that are uniquely their own, this Taiwanese label will appeal to everyone.

VFW: What is something that you need everyday?

Andre: Inspiration.
