I always envied Isabella Blow for being a muse of Philip Tracey and the late Alexander McQueen. I wondered what it would be like to watch them create at the beginning of their careers. Blow would have had an inside look into each masterpiece, the reality behind the fantasy they created. I like to think that my relationship with designer Som Kong is quite the same as Blow’s and McQueen’s.
From the first moment I met designer Som Kong, our creative heart strings attached. His designs were a fresh breath within the Canadian design market. In a repetitive industry, Som creates concepts that have never been seen before. I am so honored to present to you his latest body of work, the Hakama Collection.
