qiu hao

by chance, i saw an episode of Designer People on Ovation TV.
where they document the journey of one design luminary.

this time, it was Qiu Hao, a Chinese fashion designer.

he uttered one very nice quote, something he heard from a professor at Central St. Martins:

"The most beautiful things in world have a tinge of sadness."

i used to be ashamed of my perpetual tinge of melancholy.
this quote just reminded me once again that:
1) i need to be true to my flavor of creativity - somber, philosophical, magical and beautiful
2) i am on the right track.
