In the fall of 2019, I created several graphic artworks for Engineered Garments' F/W 2020 collection. Following that, I began working on a short film. The latest collection, titled "Balance and Tune," draws inspiration from experimental jazz and Ivy League fashion. Jazz legends such as Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, and John Coltrane have always pushed the boundaries of their art, and their progressive styles inspired this short film's core concept.
