She revealed that there is zero concern regarding budgets. "YG Entertainment wanted BLACKPINK to be different from other girl groups from the first place. In terms of styling, I am getting a perfect support from YG," explained stylist Choi, and added, "It is rare for big budgets to be given to a rookie group, but YG not only connected me with designers, but also planned a flexible budget."

Like YG's wish, BLACKPINK's style is visibly different from other girl groups. Choi took TWICE as an example, explaining that whereas the nine-piece girl group dress "feminine and cute outfits" in unity, BLACKPINK present looks that highlight distinct characteristics. She further said "BLACKPINK is a group beloved by people who follow fashion trends. While girl groups like TWICE appeal to the general public, BLACKPINK is a group for people who understand style.
