M-LINE: SEDUCTIVE TEMPTATION
My collection was inspired with a fusion of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the Marco Marco Fashion Show. These fashion shows inspired me to create a sexy, fantasy undergarment collection. Being mindful of women being portrayed quite playfully in lingerie, it aspired me to create my own interpretation for men like me who love to have something a little sexy underneath it all. Originally wanting to go towards the Marco Marco route, creating extravagant dresses for drag queens, I was refocused with the mindset to explore something I’ve never designed before, men’s underwear. Inspired by my Chinese background, the floral design on the silk brocade had me imagining of making my own unique applications for my underwear collection. Cutting out each flower/leaf and strategically putting them to cover the goodies. To keep the collection true to myself, showing confidence through revealing skin will be portrayed on the runway. These undergarments experiments with the revelation and freedom of the human form.
