Juun describes himself, about his own design concept and inspiration.
“I like to overlap different items and silhouette and change them and love to create something new. My basic design concept is classic and tailoring. I restructure the classical items or by taking things into pieces and make totally new items and silhouette. The brand new look is being created by mixing classic items and street looks together. Tailoring is very crucial element. I usually get inspired by pictures from 20th & 30th and street people. That’s why I call this, “Street Tailoring”.
