為時裝放下身段 本地設計師Julio

Julio是本地時裝設計師,二十來歲投身社會,懷著熱誠打造時裝品牌,於2012年開創時裝公司J.E.W.D. 。 Julio本以為踏上軌道,豈料第一年已令公司瀕臨破產。失敗收場大多會放棄理想,Julio反而選擇放下尊嚴,捱麵包、做兼職,都堅守時裝事業。他認為,堅毅的精神和接受現實的勇氣就是他成功的關鍵。

 

一個夢想 堅持到底

Julio自小學階段喜歡畫時裝,以球鞋為主。家人於中三送他去英國讀書,Julio選修的也是與設計相關的學科。UCAS 時更報讀了London College of Fashion。他一直以時裝設計為目標,全因為一個願望,「想設計一些自己可以擁有的產品」。

 

大學期間Julio曾為不同showroom和時裝公司做無薪兼職,累積經驗。「時裝界講經驗,沒有人會出錢請新丁,做兼職當中學到的技能知識反而更重要。」

堅持理念 失敗收場?

畢業後,Julio回港成為某時裝雜誌Fashion Editor。經過數月反思,考慮到自己不喜歡朝9晚6辦公室工作的性格,Julio決定自資開公司做時裝設計,相信自己選對事業路。

 

「第一年有一件作品,必須花上56小時才能完成,全公司都說不可行,成本高,造出來都賺不到錢。但我堅持,覺得是自己的masterpiece。最後當然是失敗收場,這件作品賣不出,令公司接近破產。」

 

「那時候有人勸我放棄,但我堅持,即使要節衣縮食、捱麵包、甚至放低尊嚴,為我最討厭的fast fashion兼職設計,我也在所不惜,因為我愛時裝。」

恩師指導 拿捏平衡

「在最艱難的時刻,我的恩師-中村星也先生出現。他令我明白,時裝要在創意與現實間取得平衡,有風格之餘也要人人合穿。全憑他的教導和鼓勵,我才不至放棄,一直相信公司可以有翻身的一天。」

 

Julio說,實用和創意可並兼。「起初,我難以接受犧牲創意以迎合大眾口味,但中村先生說實用性和創意應該是兩者互相激發,在有限的資源下發揮最大的創意,才是成功的時裝作品。沒有他,我難以擺脫固執的想法。」

 

時至今天,J.E.W.D.的季度利潤已比開業時激增3倍,而他的作品亦踏足巴黎時裝週,肯定了他在時裝設計的成功。

談起學生時期的其他同學,Julio有感而發:「不少人最後不是從事時裝行業。有的做公關,甚至有人做快餐店收銀。做時裝的確有機會『乞食』,因為總有人難以放低身段,不考慮創意的可行性。不過,愛自己的興趣,就不應放棄,堅持到底,總有機會成功的!」

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
