Joseph Jang, an Australian fashion designer, reconstructed denim into an abstract work of art. When designing a collection, Jang is inspired by many different influences, a song, movie, theatre production and history. His “ultimate dream would be to establish a luxury brand and change the way people view fashion like Coco Chanel did.”
Jang started to appreciate fashion when he was a teenager after seeing John Galliano’s collections but his love for fashion began at a very young age. When Jang was four he saw Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” and fell in love with the princesses’ dresses and started designing dresses for them. He also credits his mother as being a big influence because of her passion for beautiful and unique designs. He has a simple design philosophy: “We should always be aware of the flow but never a trend and that’s how I approach designing.”
