BIGBANG’s G-Dragon is famous worldwide for his sense of fashion, creating the latest trends as well as producing his own clothing line. In a recent interview, G-Dragon, or Kwon Ji-yong, revealed his inspiration and how he views fashion.
His effortless style has been recognized and loved by people globally. In fact, his fans named him as the fashionista of BIGBANG, given the love he has for fashion. At Paris Fashion Week, during the European launch of his collaboration fashion line PEACEMINUSONE, he revealed how he feels about his fashionista image and his personal philosophy behind his unique style sense.
G-Dragon revealed that his love of fashion came from his mother. He said: “I started out as a child actor. Back then, I didn’t have a manager or company and I couldn’t even dream of having a stylist. My mom made and bought the clothes I would wear. I think that was probably when I first got into fashion? Interestingly, when I look at pictures of me when I was five or six years old, I think I look pretty stylish.”
The fashionista of BIGBANG even openly made fun of his own fashion fails on social media specially mocking his “sushi” hair on 2013 MAMA Awards on his personal Twitter. He said: “There are times even I am a bit embarrassed by my look. Don’t be afraid. There is no right answer in fashion.”
G-Dragon also explained the difference between the European and Korean fashion scenes saying: “European style is classic with its own color and to me, it always feels chic. I think Korea is still a bit sensitive to trends, I’m not sure if that’s necessarily good or bad but Europe, on the other hand, is consistent in keeping true to its own style.”
Recently, G-Dragon’s fashion line opened at London’s Dover Street Market and it was sold out immediately.
