Get to know Yvonne

認識蔡典均

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? Nature, family and friends all inspire me.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 大自然、家人和朋友都能給我靈感。

Where do you go to get inspired? I like to read books, browse the Internet or go traveling. I collect interesting trinkets and make scrapbooks. I also often find inspiration when I visit art galleries or when I am in nature.

你從哪裡尋找靈感? 我喜 歡 看書,上 網 或 旅 遊,亦 會 收 集 有 趣 的 小 物 品 及 製 作 剪 貼 簿。參觀藝術館或到大自然也給我很多靈感。

What made you get into fashion? From an early age I already liked painting, art and films. A fashion designer once said, ‘Fashion is walking art’ and I really agree with this idea. First impressions are based on what you wear; so I hope to link these concepts to design unique clothing. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. My initial ambition was to become a veterinarian, because animals fascinate me. What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? I really enjoy brainstorming when working with a limited number of fabrics and garments. I like imagining how the sleeves and trouser legs can be changed or altered. This creative thinking process gives me a sense of accomplishment.

是甚麼令你投身時裝界? 我 至小 開 始已經 喜 歡 畫 畫、藝 術及電 影。有一 位 時 裝 設 計 師說 過:「時裝就 是 活生 生的 藝 術」我十 分認同這句話。第一印象 是 從衣著 而來的,所以我希望 把這 些概 念與 設 計 獨 特的 衣 服 連 在 一起。 告訴我們一件關於你的與眾不同的事情。 我最初的夢想是當獸醫,因為我很喜歡動物。 設計及製作可持續時裝的過程中,你最享受的是甚麼? 我十 分享受 拿 著 有 限 的 布 料及 衣 物 時 候,激 發 我不 停思考的過 程。我喜歡幻想如何改變袖子和褲管變 成新設計,這個創意思考 過程給我很 大的成功感。
