How old were you when you first developed an active interest in shoe design?
I think I must have been 21, at the time that I was a sophomore. I was doing a BA on Fashion Accessory Design that included bags, shoes, jewelry.
To be honest, I love all of them. Later I attended several competitions about shoe design, to which I dedicated a lot of energy and effort. I then decided that shoe design is my favourite thing. Just like in relationship , in the beginning, you might just like her or him, which is quite superficial.
But when your relationship gradually deepens, as you dedicate energy and invest emotionally into this relationship, you know that she or he is your true love.
Shoe design is just like this for me.

Would you share with us the philosophy behind The Layering Movement 2016?
My collection is inspired by 3D layering texture effect. Improving injection mold technique to create excellent dynamic 3D layering texture materials is my design guideline. Actually, this collection closer to a commercial direction. It does not have any deep philosophy. Two points are very important for me when I design shoes. One of them is that shoes must be beautiful or cool, the second point is that they should be wearable and comfortable. I do not like shoes that look ugly, even they have an interesting concept. I also want to design unique shoes, not only in terms of pattern.

Looking back, do you think that there have been significant changes between the way
you used to work when you started out and the way you work now?

For me , that is the same, each of my collection follows a commercial direction. So my design guideline is to focus on my target consumer.
I still care about what clients want and what I can do to satisfy ther needs.
