'A La Mode' Designer Profile: Jonathan Liang (Series vol. 7)

Here's another hot, emerging designer that will show in "A La Mode" ... Jonathan Liang.  You'll definitely want to check him out ... these pictures are fierce.

How did you get into fashion?
Started after I got out of art school, it's a bold step for someone who is rather introverted like me.

Did you go to school for training?
Yes I did, at Raffles design inst. probably pursuing further in Paris

What do you do for inspiration? How do you get inspired to create a collection?
As I still have so much to learn, I am trying many ways to obtain my inspirations, such as working from a title, a context or even a phrase and images.

Do you prefer certain materials?
I like trying new materials but I also prefer ones which needs no ironing work!

Who do you design for ... Is it a specific person or a type of person?
For those who are inspired and can relate to my work, those are the ones I constantly try to reach out for, I believe they could also help me progress.
