From designing for Asian popstars to statement street style, he shared a few of his thoughts with chiefglammy.
CG: What is the inspiration behind your brand?

CG: What are your thoughts on the fashion style of Taiwan?
JIC: Frankly speaking , the fashion style of Taiwan is much more like “Korean” style , because K-pop singers are very famous and popular here , and we Taiwanese are usually too timid to find out our individualism to make our unique style.

JIC: It must be the moment when I won the ELLE New Talented Award 2015.
CG:What gives you the edge to always push boundaries, especially with the type of models you use for your campaigns?
JIC: I will say that my rebellious spirit always reminds me to look for the new possibilities , that’s why I always choose amateurs as my models . No matter black boys or albino girls , all I want to make a point is that everyone could be a model , just find out your own attitudes.
