The Age of the Independent Creator

On Tynan

I love inequality. When I'm on the bottom end of it, I like that there's a scale that hints at the upper bounds of potential, and when I'm at the higher end of it, I like seeing the progress I've made. I have a tough time imagining the function of ambition and hustle in a world where everyone is always equal in all respects.

When I was in high school, I had a few friends who were obsessed with the idea of nanotechnology. I knew nothing about it, but they told me that eventually a machine would exist that would be able to create any physical object the owner desired.

The idea of everyone being able to have everything they wanted struck panic into my heart, as it threatened my beloved inequality. Sure, there were things that I wanted, but I liked wanting them -- it was fuel.

I felt honoured to be nominated as a finalist and very happy to be in the same room with so many established and talented designers. It is amazing to be recognised by your peers, especially when I am only at the beginning of my journey as a fashion designer.
