A message from Quade
Born in New Zealand, Shosai represents a pursuit of passion outside of his profession.
“From when I first started thinking of the designs, I realised very quickly how particularly I felt about all the small details in each garment: from how I wanted each piece to fit, all the way down to how I wanted the stitching to look. I genuinely love fashion and it’s been a dream of mine to do something like this for as long as I can recall. I am proud to be able to share a passion and creativity that isn’t necessarily in line with what people expect from me. I hope that by doing this, it provides encouragement for athletes, and people in general, to feel confident in pursuing passions outside of what they are labelled to do.”
