The Pink Freak: Trisha

I have been toying with this idea for so long! I have always wanted to put up Feature Friday section to share about my favorite artists. And today, we have our first artist in the person of the Pink Queen herself, Trisha Denise!

I have known Trisha, self-confessed Pink Freak, ever since I began designing and sewing for dolldelight in 2011. We got acquainted when she bought a few of my handmade pieces way back then. She has always been passionate about Japanese street fashion, particularly kawaii culture. I even had the pleasure of working with her when she modeled for me in the Mata Expo Fashion Show in 2015. Needless to say, I am so happy to see her thrive as one of the most creative visual artists in the Philippines. In fact, she was one of the finalists for the past NYX Face Awards!

I want to share (or spazz) about her so much but I think everyone’s better off checking her social media networks. Being a multi-talented artist, she has made the cutest and most creative content I have ever seen. I have the scoop on her social, so be sure to check the links below. Meanwhile, here are a few questions to help us get to know more about Trisha:

1. As a child, what was your biggest dream?
As a little girl, I've always been inclined towards the artsy side of things. My hobbies included drawing on my mom's wall and cutting up her curtains to make dresses for my dolls. My mom was furious - you can only imagine the look on her face when I told her that it was her fault for not buying me clothes for my Barbie. One way or another, I knew that I would end up being an artist, nothing specific.

2. What are your current projects?
After taking a short break from making Youtube videos, I'm currently working on my brand which will debut at Lace Up!, an event by The Philippines Gothic and Lolita Community. The collection is called "Duchesse de Fleur". It focuses on the values of what I want my brand to be. With creativity, fun and fulfillment at the core of its values. It's high fashion inspired by elements of folklore, mixed with a touch of Kawaii and Japanese culture. The brand's aspiration is to spread the zany and lovingly eccentric Kawaii style to a wider audience.

3. If you can change one thing in an instant, what would it be?
It would be the sexualization of women. It's something that has existed for the longest time, and is so culturally ingrained that most people don't even know that it's already the root cause for many crimes against women. The media certainly doesn't help either. Women are oftenly depicted as sexual objects in both film and TV. It's as people say: "sex" sells. But what if "cute" sold more? I guess it's also one of the things that I want to achieve with my brand someday.
