“ARSEN ROCK x ULRICH AK”
Why did you apply for the Cosmic Special Makeup Challenge?
My definition of life is creating and taking challenges up by improving my skills.
However, I’ve never designed a shoe before the Cosmic Special Makeup Challenge. I was fascinated by Rock’s background and his vision of the footwear. Arsen has done a pretty nice job and I wanted to be a piece of the Cosmic.

AR: What is your favorite part about being a designer?
UA: Experiencing is my favorite part about being a designer. I mean starting from scratch, seeking for a concept and reaching the goal step by step. Thus, I always sleep with a pen and a piece of paper for fear that an idea escapes from my mind.
AR: Why did you decide to become an eyewear designer?
UA: Since my childhood, I have been interested in High-Tech and Graphic Design. Not wanting to look like my classmates, I used to customize my t-shirts and caps using my mother’s sewing machine. At school, my friends liked my designs and asked me to create them some t-shirts with my brand. I was 13 years old when I launched my first brand.
