Describe your collection in 3 words.
KK/ Itinerant, Infinite, Invisible

How is the GQ China support started?
KK/ Everything started from an email: i was selected for a GQ china annual project which pushing young designer into an international stage.

What's the most challenging during this collection?
KK/ In order to finish the collection within a very short time - 25 full looks with bag and shoes designs in 2 and a half months. However, during the making process, I told myself that I deserve the change if I could finish it within this limited time. And I was so glad that I finally did it.

Your shoe collaboration with Youngwon Kim is a success. What is your next collaboration that you mostly want to do?
KK/ It was a coincidence, I saw Youngwon Kim's work one day and I emailed her asking if she would be interested in collaboration. And Um.... I have no idea at this moment. I want to have a collaboration with an accessories designer, though. :)

What's your next steps in terms of your brand development?
KK/ Seeking for partner who is strong in commercial aspect.

Based in Hong Kong and Paris, Mak Chun Ting founded JOURDEN in Hong Kong. The first collection start with a very boy-ish classics with a strong sense of femininity. I am amazed by their play on fabrication. The incredibly simple harrington jacket in a weighty shimmering fabric double-sided with wool, the very cliché varsity jacket precisely constructed in 800 grams cashmere wool, the bourgeois hunting coat on a risky take, made with a custom-quilted fabric with multi-frills weaved in and out of it and fitted in XXL. The retailers of their FW13 collection includes: Happy Shop (Berlin) / Desperado (Tokyo) / Camille Boyer (Vienna) / Liger (HK) / Edit (HK).
