（click picture to enter@ofcoursekidding wardrobe）
Art and fashion have always been intertwined. Fashion, as many might agree, is an artform in itself. In this interview, we speak to ModeStar and visual designer @ofcoursekidding. With a background in art studies, he’s had a keen sense for shapes, textures, and colors since a young age. Through both his career but also his fashion sense, @ofcoursekidding has managed to build up a strong aesthetic for what he puts on.

ModeSens：Since when did you start to like fashion? What has fashion brought to your life?
@ofcoursekidding：Since I learned arts in school, I’ve paid special attention to colors, textures and shapes ever since I was young. Rather than saying that “I like fashion,” I like to think that I’m more interested in the spatial relationships between color, shape, textures with the body, ever since I was young.

ModeSens：What’s your ideal way to live?
@ofcoursekidding：Having two or three soulmates and a job that’s fulfilling my passions. But also a bravery to leave all of that behind as well.
ModeSens：Being an avid fan of fashion, what do you usually enjoy picking up?
@ofcoursekidding：London has many unique boutiques and vintage shops. I like to visit those type of places. The pieces don’t necessarily have to be name-brand. I’m looking for qualities of touch and cut and sow. I love picking up pieces that are than 20 or 30 pounds but can carry forward a full luxury look.

ModeSens：What do you think is your ideal way of fashion?
@ofcoursekidding：I enjoy self expression through what I wear. Sometimes people take being fashionable as wearing odd or loud pieces but I think that doesn’t quite matter — whether you’re loud, weird, or reserved, you’re most authentic when you’re feeling comfortable in your own skin and in what you choose to wear to bring out the best of yourself.
ModeSens：Which designers do you like?
@ofcoursekidding：I really like Yohji Yamamoto. Although his pieces are uber expensive, his work is truly masterpieces. From craftmanship, design, quality, I really appreciate the level of mastery.

ModeSens：Whats your fashion style? Do you like being in trend or putting together your own sense of style?
@ofcoursekidding：I don’t have a consistent style. It really depends on mood and occasion. I’ve been enjoying the comfort of athletic wear as of late. It’s hard to explain if a particular style is your own or from a trend. After all, I think we’re all somewhat influenced by others in our digital age.

ModeSens：What are some of your hobbies?
@ofcoursekidding：Usually I enjoy drinking tea and picking up a book, or going to museums and galleries. I also like running, basketball and hot yoga. At times, I love traveling surrounding countries. Weekends, I’m usually out drinking with friends or watching movies.
ModeSens：Is there any recent happenings in fashion that stood out to you?
@ofcoursekidding：Ha, not lately.
ModeSens：What’s your first impression or experience with ModeSens? How do you feel ModeSens is different from other platforms?
@ofcoursekidding：ModeSens has a clean design and is different in that I can directly purchase items that are tagged on social posts.
