Ikigai is about discovering your passion and what motivates you in life. Ultimately Becki's Ikigai has been creating her label BECCI and finding her love for fashion designing. This is BECCI's first collection, and it continues to grow, with pieces being added over time. Tulle and print are key to these designs and have been combined together to create vibrant colours and bold silhouettes. The prints created by BECCI have been initially hand painted using alcohol inks, combined with digital illustrations, mixed with primary photographs, and Japanese text- all digitally edited together. Japanese words such as:
“生き甲斐”, “Ikigai”, have been subtly incorporated, these words have no one word English equivalent, and instead have deeper meaningful messages and phrases behind them. BECCI wanted to create something unique and meaningful with these prints in the collection.
