Hi There..... Do you like leather jackets? Are you ready for a new fashion designer interview?

You had better be because I am. Then again, you probably are, otherwise, you might not be reading this fashion designer interview. I love to have the power to keep you waiting until I feel like writing. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Nah, of course not. I feel ever so lucky people take the time to read my blog posts. Sometimes life throws me a curveball and I have to postpone writing until the next day, but I try to be on call twice a week. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I know, lots of writers have blog posts queued up for days like that, but that's just not me. When I am not writing, I am knitting, sewing, or beading, on other days you can find me sipping a cool drink on a terras somewhere. Life is too short not to enjoy every minute. ๐Ÿ˜

Let's see what the 43-year-old George Yang, fashion designer for PalaLeather, has to tell about his life. ๐Ÿ˜Š

What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be? 

Complete annual and seasonal product design and development according to the brand's product positioning.

What made you decide to become a Fashion Designer?

It runs in the blood of our family. I grew up watching my elders and the workers crafting leather garments.

Our great-grandfather was a skilled tailor who owned a small tailor shop. Later on, he expanded his business and opened a manufacturing company of leather jackets. 
That’s how I became interested in fashion and wanted to show my style and designs. 
 

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Fashion means a lot to me. I am deeply influenced by my family culture. 
Since I was a child, I would always look forward to the latest trends and the most fashionable aesthetic styles of the year. Whenever I am exposed to a new trend, I love to immerse myself in the trends and feel the change and beauty of the fashion world.

What are your successes, and how did you achieve them?

Our family business was once dying and almost failed, but at a family gathering, we decided to revive it by re-branding and re-financing. I took on this immense responsibility and through my tireless efforts, it thrived and we explored opportunities overseas. 

When I took over and managed our family's factory, I was always committed to winning over competitors by QUALITY. I got the best suppliers for leather and hardware. Every leather garment goes through a rigorous quality control process to ensure that it is ready for the market. 

We are known for our QUALITY. Our customers love our products and through their word of mouth and recommendations, our factory has grown bigger and bigger. This year, we even got a partnership with Lamborghini! 
 

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

Yes. A brand is a business card for consumers & it represents a huge role when purchasing clothing. Most people also buy clothing with a brand name.
Compared to brandless competitors, the essence of branding is that it gives greater value to your products & services.
 

Describe your personal style of clothing?

My designs are more on the side of understated luxury fashion pieces. You can see the superior quality and exquisite craftsmanship in the details of each piece.
 

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

I think fashion will always be about expressing yourself. 
I like it, I wear it. I want it, I wear it.

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

For me, Strap Accents are the best trend in 2022. We are seeing crop tops with a strapped waistband across the stomach, strappy dresses, and bralettes. They are trendy at the moment. 

Poly Pleated Skirts are also gaining popularity recently. Pleats and tucks are designs that suit everyone. Simple gathering pleats and tucks can easily upgrade a casual top to cozy party looks. 
 

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment?

Adding glossy chain belts on the garments can be the worst trend in 2022. 
Whether it's a low-key shimmer or a more visually striking highlight chain belt or clothing hardware, I think these can only be used on specific fabrics and occasions. It is difficult to make this trend versatile as casual wear. Especially if you have cheap fabrics. I think it looks miserable.
 

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Your fashion style should be comfortable, not time-consuming, and very personal. You should express yourself in your style. Wear the most suitable and beautiful version of yourself. Wearing the right style of your own will make you confident. Just be yourself. You do not have to dress up too hard, find the right one for you.
 

Who is your style icon and why?

I love Hedi Slimane. He is a great artist, designer, stylist, and photographer. I am fascinated by his iconic tight black suits and rocking unisex covers. With his fluid, unisex tailoring style, Slimane designed all kinds of leather jackets, narrow-waisted coats, and low-collared shirts, breathing new life into YSL's secondary label Rive Gauche Homme. He brings his unique razor-thin aesthetic to the forefront.

  1. That's interesting that he says pleated skirts are in style. I don't think everyone can wear a pleated skirt though.
