Many people asked me, why Azham Vosovic? Is the name that my parents give me not suitable enough? Well, it all started with my fetish to Russian names like Milla Jovovich (pronounced as mee-luh yo-vo-vitch) when I was in secondary school. For me, Russian names sounds sexier, and I wanted to have one even though I have no Russian traits in my blood.
Then I watched the first season of Project Runway, and I saw this guy with a very sexy name, Daniel Vosovic. His designs are fresh, it shows his confidence, and he even won the All-Star Challenge of Project Runway though he did not win the tittle in Season 1.
That is a brief history of how I become Russianized until right now. Some said that I should find my own identity but I don't feel anything wrong with this name as it does not affect any of my personality. In fact, not many Malaysians know him right?
As for me, I just want to get the spirit of this fashion designer. It is not easy to do something which is out of the norm, like when a man gets involved in fashion. I just want to run across the stereotype of humankind, and do something extraordinary. Well, life will be so dull if you just follow only one rule so please try to cheat on it.

To my Russian brother Daniel Vosovic, I hope that you don't mind me getting into your family tree? All the best in your life, and I hope that one day we can meet up. I will see you in New York when I get there okay? Really looking forward to wearing your designs.
