BLACKPINK‘s Lisa recently revealed everything about what it’s like to be selected as a juror for the 2021 ANDAM Awards in an exclusive interview with WWD.
Lisa admitted that, despite being new to the fashion world, she’s willing to take on the challenge in order to grow.
I was very surprised when I first got the invitation as a juror. Since I’m very new in the fashion world, I thought this could be quite an adventurous and challenging experience for me at first.
But at the same time, I thought it would be an exciting experience and I would learn a lot from this opportunity. So I accepted the offer.
As a juror, Lisa’s responsibility of choosing finalists proved to be a challenging but exciting task.
It took me hours to choose! I wasn’t able to make decisions only by looking at portfolios, so I explored all the artists’ social pages to make the final decision. The style and characteristics of each artist’s work were distinctively different. So I could easily catch up with who and whose as I went over all the brands. I think that was a very eye-opening experience.
Lisa had her own method for her choices based on her own perspective as an artist.
I looked at the overall things first, then I looked at the design parts more specifically. I believe every judge uses different criteria and values for evaluation; I evaluated works from my perspective, as a singer and an entertainer.
I would love to wear clothes that are easy to wear for casual occasions, but at the same time, have special features that are also suitable for stage performances. So I can go on stage with them right away. And I chose the brands that fulfill my needs. Some brands were so interesting that I went to their socials to discover more about them.
