The book also introduces part of a secret and premier file which shows the origin of his idea. You can witness his internationally-praised, unique creativity based on his never give up – attitude. The reason why Karl Lagerfeld, FENDI, Junya Watanabe, Jun Takahashi and other top world designers designate him for their collections would be clearly told in this book.
