Fashion as a medium, brings us together

It’s an artistic expression that excludes no one

Because every individual deserves an eclectic sense of individuality


It’s hard to define whether it’s the thrills of off-roading or the pleasures of fashion that influenced Ji_Vo more. Going over his snapshots of various off-roading adventures, posing like a “fashion blogger”, it’s impossible to figure out which activity brought him more satisfaction to the mind and soul. What is the highest of his highs and what triggers it.


He interprets fashion to be “an artistic expression that excludes no one.” From the age of ten, he already shook off mom’s helping hand, and began picking out his own clothes. He also prescribes the notion that anyone can wear whatever he/she wishes to wear – granted, it’s within the boundaries of your self-devised fashion rules.

From his photos and words, you can clearly feel that he has firmly planted in his life the principles of striving beyond the limits, becoming one with the vehicle, and the spirit of off-roading. If fashion is an expression of one’s inner state, then self-determination, toughness, and freedom have already become his immovable and invaluable mindset – fearless and equanimous.



Q&A for ModeStar @ Ji_Vo 


ModeSens:When did you fall in love with fashion? What has fashion brought to your life?


Ji_Vo:I don’t remember when it started, but my fashion story goes like this:

Fashion is a lifestyle. Not everyone loves poetry or painting, but fashion is an artistic expression that lets everyone in. It represents your inner state and reinforces your social status. Like language, it’s a silent way of communication. It is also a way to pass on faith, customs, and cultural heritage to the next generation. The clothes we choose reveal our aspirations and feelings, whether we like it or not. Fashion is everywhere, and it excludes no one, but it differs vastly from person to person.

I began choosing my own clothes when I was ten years old (my mother was very disappointed because she has always wanted to dress me). For me, fashion has always been a way to highlight my personality – how I view myself, how I wish to be viewed by others.

ModeSens:What is your ideal lifestyle?

Ji_Vo:My lifestyle is very simple. Always smile, don’t be overly trusting of anyone. Never retreat from hardship, face it head on.


ModeSens:As a seasoned fashionista, what do you like to purchase for yourself?

Ji_Vo:When we buy a piece of clothing that we never wear, the worst reason is that we were shopping for the future. You know that elusive future self who goes to the gym all the time, who has finally lost all that fat. But in reality, the one doing the shopping isn’t your future self, it’s your present self. Buying clothes that you might never wear is the easiest way to spend money in vain.


Shop for your present self. Be honest with yourself. When you realize you’re wondering if a particular piece suits you, you should put it back on the rack, and look for something that truly works for your present self.

 

Shopping with restraint is an exercise of self-discipline. It’s also a reward for persistence and will power. Setting boundaries is going to make you shop more efficiently and tone down buyer’s remorse.

ModeSens:What is your style bible? Do you like to chase the trends or create your own style?

Ji_Vo:You can wear whatever you want, whenever you want, in whatever way that suits you. For me, it’s about developing a structured way of thinking. Using a consistent standard to guide you, no matter who you are, where you are. Even if it’s not perfect, I find this way of thinking helps me achieve winning looks.


ModeSens:What do you like to do in your spare time?


Ji_Vo:All kinds of off-road adventures, browsing ModeSens, shopping, traveling.
