The Label Ministry Runway Show is on THIS Wednesday! Concluding our series of interviews with designers taking part is with Ayaka Ichikawa the designer behind aquintic, that you may remember from the Raffles Runway Show at Merecedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia
The InterviewHow would you describe your label?
aquintic is based on the concept of art in fashion and believes in delivering high-end quality garments with detailed tailoring and hand finishings. The brand aims to create an aquintic way of fashion for women, and casually incorporating menswear elements in style.
The unique point of our works would probably be trying to make different concept/style for each collection and also use of different materials. We are always excited to feel and hear our audience’s voice from different aspect or prospective, and that gives us energy to step forward and makes us trying to improve more in our creation.
Who are your favourite Aussie designers?
I think Dion Lee’s designs are very interesting, he always gives some twists in his works.
Any advice for fashion design students who are looking to kick start their career?
Try to be more open minded and mentally be prepared for the situation that might give you pressure. Most importantly, do not forget your obsession towards learning things.
2 years from now, what would you have liked to have achieved?
It just would be great if I could make my collection constantly and having followers who love my works. I believe that achievement comes after when I have true fans that support my creation from their hearts.
What’s your weird quirk? (Yes, because I'm really into geekery)
Well, I cannot think of anything... but my housemate just told me that I am a clean freak... and I really think I am not!
