I have been very much blessed ever since my debut collection hit its first runway, which was my university's graduation show. I never imagined when I first conceptualised GIN OUKAM in late 2017 that my baby collection would bring me to places I have only dream about. It won me the title of Men's Folio Designer of the Year 2018, walked The Hive's A/W Fashion Runway last year and got an exclusive feature in Men's Folio's February 2019 issue. It gave me enough confidence to take a leap of faith in my career — to start my own label, AZ.S.
As I've mentioned in my interview with Men's Folio, I will be taking part in a trade show exhibition in March 2019. Fashion World Tokyo is one of the largest fashion trade show exhibition held twice a year, with March's covering Autumn Winter collections. It will be AZ.S debut exhibition, and will be showcasing GIN OUKAM exclusively.
