One day, when we heard from a college professor that Burberry was looking for help in preparation for London Fashion Week, we rushed to Burberry’s headquarters. That afternoon, I was busy replacing the buttons on the trench coat. It was fun, but I remember bleeding from my fingertips. At that time I didn’t even know what a thimble was. Burberry’s design director at the time was a powerful and frightening American woman. When I was told to come to the office at the end of work, I thought there was no next. However, she said she liked your tenaciousness and let her work as an apprentice. The work was just fun. After working in Burberry for about a year at school, I moved to the brand of designer Jonathan Saunders. Sanders was a funny person from Scotland, a fun and vibrant workplace. ■ Being a woman at the time of employment is an obstacle I went to Savile Row in London, where men’s clothing stores are lined up on weekends, and searched for a job to help at some store. I became friends with an elderly tailor named Bobby (a tailor who mainly deals with men’s clothing), and every Saturday I started to observe his work. I also did a little work, such as sewing pockets. However, the British tailor industry is a male society, and being a woman became an obstacle when trying to get a formal job. I dreamed of entering a luxury store in Savill Law and did a lot of unpaid work, but it didn’t go as I expected. A man advised me not to waste my time. Meanwhile, a famous female tailor told me to look ahead and keep looking for opportunities. So I worked for a lot of people. Still, no major tailor hired me. Over time, and at the recommendation of our customers, we opened our own store in a building near Savill Law in 2018. It’s a building where tailors have moved in one after another for over 100 years, but my store is the first female store owner.
