    VISIT is an exploration and interpretation of the relationship between travel and Buddhism. Buddha's enlightenment originated from his travels through different beliefs and cultures to find inner peace. My own traveling experiences help me relate to Buddha's teachings. Traveling allows me to see reality from the point of view of people of different cultures and beliefs, which, according to Buddhist teachings, leads to enlightenment. Traveling broadens my own perspective as it teaches me how to see the world from different points of view. There are always more things out there to be seen and learn from, which I believe will lead to continuous enlightenment on the way to Nirvana. For me, this is a way to bring fashion back to an art form, to provoke and inspire people through different cultures.
