NCT‘s Ten recently released his first-ever clothing line, and shared the inspiration behind his designs!
Ten is known for his love for art, and is often sharing his artwork through his Instagram, also designing several of his tattoos!
In the month of June, Ten announced a collaboration with the brand REPRESENT, revealing his very own clothing line to fans!
In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, he talked about his clothing line, elaborating on the motivation behind his designs! He touched upon his initial post on Instagram, where he shared how his first and foremost purpose when making his designs was to inspire people to break free from defining boundaries in order to be themselves.
In the interview, he talked more about this particular viewpoint, and how it stemmed from his own experiences of having limits placed on him by other people to fit their idea of what he should be. He started thinking about his own self, and that’s how he arrived at the answer that there is no right answer.
I was thinking about my own stuff, the things I have to do to get what I want, like my goals. And, what people said to me, maybe about [my] appearance or about the skills that I had, or my personality, and they told me to change this, do this. I realized that they’re just making their own lines on me.
So what is the right answer for me? What do I have to do to really be the person I want to be? But then I realized that there’s no right or wrong.
Ten has been showing off his new designs on his Instagram account, and we have to say, he’s killing it!
