Here's where we feature a rotating selection of the actual people behind the labels that call our store home. Find out more about the human side of the labels that you love and get to know their story just that tad bit better. For this round, find out more about Gin Lee, designer for eponymous label GINLEE.
Who is the "Ginlee" woman?
The "Ginlee" woman comes from all walks of life, from woman in high power management job, to artist in creative fields , from young 20's something, to even women in their 90's (true story), from lesbian couples to flamboyant body flaunting woman. Whats in common, is that they all have strong personality and altitude, the "ginlee" woman is a woman who is true to herself, and appreciative of my attention to details.
What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?
To me, designing a collection is bit like solving a puzzle, once you chose an inspiration that gives you the excitement, is to gather all the elements and form a final picture from it. That process of development from sketches to actual garment, developing a 3d from through 2d patterning, when the ideas would evolved and developed into a final product, is the part I enjoyed the most as a fashion designer.
How did you select the materials you used?
All the factors of fabric such as content, hand feel, drape, the weight all has a part to play in a successful design. When I started out our label, we work mainly with Silk, and this has a profound impact in my fabric selection till now, because Silk has a thing about it, that you just cannot replace with another material. Over the years I've started to use other materials with the understanding that each material has it's own unique properties and functions.
