What motivated you to venture into fashion design?
Fizi : The interest came when I was younger as my mother used to be a tailor. I always helped her while she did her work. I would see her take time dress making; the handwork, the painstaking processes and old superstitions in dress making had captivated me to make it as a career.
Kai : I used to be an architect and during my study years, I indulged myself in a lot of creative works from photography, interior design to corporate branding and more. When I met Fizi, the opportunity was there for me to lay my creative hands in fashion and I realized that it was something I loved and now lucky enough to make a career out of it.
As any young brand, financially it was difficult to keep our business afloat but we manage to pass that phase and now we are stronger and stable as whole. Initially, it is was hard for both of us to make decisions creative-wise as we both have different aesthetics when it comes to fashion but over time we learnt to meet in the middle and the outcome is mix of architecture meets fashion hence most of our pieces are structured yet soft and flamboyant yet feminine.
