MICHELLE YUE: It's a material that has always appealed to me– in furniture, architecture, jewelry, etc. To me, it is associated with futurism. It's also hypoallergenic. I have sensitive skin, and I wanted to create using a material that didn't react with my skin. ;) Also... it's shiny and transparent!What's your favorite piece you've ever designed?
It's really hard to say. I think that the Lucite Collar is still my favorite piece.You also sing and create your own music. When did that passion for music start?
I started messing around with making music when I was 20, but I had classical piano training from age 8 to 15. I picked up a midi keyboard and started writing in Garage Band. Then... I started a band when I was 23 called Monorose. I have played in 3 other friends' bands, and I also worked on a project called Matsu Mixu for the last 3 years. Making music has always been a cathartic practice for me.Why call your brand Nonhuman?
I used to fashion blog under "Missnonhuman," and before that, my AOL IM username was that since I was 15. Haha. It's meant to imply the nonhuman realms, whatever they may be to you.When you're not glamming or working, how do you like to spend your time?
I lové to dance. ;)Cats or dogs?
