When I was young, I only thought about my shortcomings, complained about them, always made excuses and lived with low self-consciousness. But, when I accepted my own shortcomings, accepted them, and acknowledged them as a part of me, it was no longer a shortcoming and became an advantage depending on how I used them.
For one thing, I suddenly got ADHD when I was 18 years old, so I got a really hard time focusing on one thing. This was really stressful for me, and it sometimes led me to panic, so in my early 20s, I always avoided something that I had to sit down and concentrate on, and I always did active things. After some years, I got a job taking charge of design work at the company, and when I was working overtime at home on weekends, I randomly happened to do cooking at home, and I realized I could concentrate on the design well and cooked very well.
So, after finding this method, whenever I design, I take turns doing other things every 10 minutes and repeat it. Then, I could finish two or three things at the same time. This disadvantage is no longer a disadvantage, but my advantage. So, I wanted to let people know through ERROR NYC what I felt. The shortcoming you think is not a mistake, just an error, it is not wrong, just different. Don't hide it and use it with confidence. The moment you accept and utilize it as a part of you, you can make your own culture.
In that sense, we chose our slogan because the clothes are worn by the creators of culture. This is the reason why I worked with Shaun Ross
on our first collection.
