“At the end it is just clothes.”

Siki Im lecture was an interesting one. 

What I found curious was how he explained about his particular way of creating. Sounded like he has an academic background in science, design and art theory.  For example, he mentioned that he was inspired by Einstein’s theory of relativity; I found it’s quite remarkable that this is what drives his design practice of making fashion clothes.

What I felt from his lecture was some sense of honesty. I felt he is doing what he likes in his own capacity, at the same time he is conscious of the demands of the fashion industry.

Amongst others, one of interesting comments he made at the lecture that stayed with me was when he said: “at the end it is just clothes”. In this comment I felt his commitment to playing his part within the industry and the realization of the sacrifice for playing it.

Whether it’s his background that brings extra value to his brand, or purely the aesthetic of his creations, it is reassuring and motivating thought to know that Siki Im remaining true to his interests, doing what he likes and believes, delivers viable product for his brand, and at the end he is feeling good. This is the positive impression I had from his lecture.imgres

  1. I also interested in his comment that :”At the end it is just clothes.” It sound like a compromise to the reality, he understands the public would not give a shit to the deep think behind the design, what people see is just a cloth. However, doing things that only matters to himself make him stronger, being honest with ourself, doing things that looks in vain needs more courage.

    Besides, I really like his layout of the ppt. Everything he presented to us are really him, from how he dressed himself, the music of show, the layout, his website, even they way how he talk is kind of the same style. In my opinion, this is very important to a designer, basically, everything matters to built a strong brand image. And I think this is because he has a strong personality and he know himself deeply.
