When we are young, don’t be afraid of failures and uncertainties

Perhaps Art chose him after he had been wondering among doors to enter his life career; Bobby learned that the London College for Fashion and Design held a Young Talented Designers Search Competition. With his very instinctive composition, he joined the contest and won the prize, and he was awarded a "Terrific" scholarship. It was a really good opportunity for him to choose a profession.

Throughout his study, Bobby was always a good student and produced many highly quality works.         The scholarship that he won was also a motivation that helped him to strive non-stop. Many people wondered, "Why don’t you find a stable job?" Bobby just laughed: "When you're young, don’t be afraid of failures and uncertainties. Keep pursuing what you like. If you fail, you won’t regret about what you did, because you lived and dared to do what you like. The feeling of studying and chasing after what you like is really great”.

For Bobby, the hardest part of pursuing Art is passion. He said: "The difficulty for the pursuit of art is you are not passionate enough. If you are not passionate enough, you are hindering yourself on the path to success. "Living in a flashy showbiz, lots of beautiful people, Bobby sometimes wondered, "Should I choose materials or passion?" But in the end, passion still wins like the first day he chose Fashion: "I have a very clear view of my passion and always know what I want in my work. For other industries I do not know but with Art, you have to cherish your passion."

He still resolutely says: "If everyone doesn’t dare to follow their dreams because of material difficulties, the world will be filled in money and not interesting at all. Follow your passion; you will have success of materials afterwards”
