masha ma

masha ma!!! nedavno je the guardian objavio sjajan intervju sa njom. rođena je 1985. u pekingu. odrasla je sa bakom koja je uspela od očiju jurišnika kulturne revolucije da sačuva poneki lični lepi predmet, poput kutije za nakit, jer joj je esteika značila tako mnogo. tako je i odgajala unuku. roditelji su joj radili van kine. masha ma već sa 16 godina zna šta želi i to što želi ima sreće da ima šanse i da realizuje i odlazi u london na studije. i to tamo gde će steći najbolje modno obrazovanje. na central saint martins. sa samo 12 godina u elle magazinu se divila alexanderu mcqueenu, a 2007. u londonu sarađuje upravo sa njime. masha je sitna, polovina lica joj je zaklonjena kosom, ali njen stav je pobednički, engleski joj je snažan i ako biste je samo slušali ne biste pogodili da dolazi iz kine. po okončanju studija i osvajanja modnog londona i pariza vraća se u kinu, u šangaj i odatle nastavlja svoju modnu misiju. jednom nedeljno putuje za pariz. ima široko opšte obrazovanje i veliku radoznalost. znala sam da će mi se svideti sve što radi kada sam pročitala da voli kafku, oscara wilda… a njena priča kako je upoznala danteovo delo dovela me je do suza od smeha. elem, kinezi su u njenoj ranoj mladosti, u svom prevodu danteoovog “pakla” (a verovatno i ostalih dela sa zapada) dali sebi popriličnu slobobodu, pa je “pakao” na kineskom mashi zazvučao kao neka lepršava literatura, samo su je zbunjivale ilustracije sandra botticellija koje su bile u dubokom kontrastu sa sadržajem prevoda…

sandro botticelli, abyss of hell, dante, inferno

the chinese translation made the text sound like a happy sunday outing, but the drawings depicted a bloody nightmare. i stared at the pages for hours trying to understand what was going on. something was very wrong.” (masha ma)

“i’ve always been attracted to the darker side of things.” (masha ma)

“i’m currently reading the castle by franz kafka again. you need to keep an open mind and have common knowledge. people think designers always read fashion magazines and art books. that’s so ’90s.” (masha ma)

“not be to the best, just to be better”. it’s a mantra she says she’s stuck to since. “fashion at this level is brutal. but if you have that goal to keep improving, if you always give yourself something to work towards, i think you’ll manage to stay alive.” (masha ma)

“anyone can be a designer. i want to build a brand – an international brand from china, based in china and made in china. the problem is ‘made in china’, that’s the concept we need to change, rather than desperately trying to [come up with] artificial hoo-hah designs and calling them avant-garde. 

ma says she designs for the woman “who is never shouting for attention but never silenced either”
