What are you working on at the moment?
Collaborating with Korean artist Haegue Yang for M West Kowloon Cultural District.
What is your favourite designer brand and why?
Two designers that I feel are so relevant for today are Chitose Abe for Sacai — her pieces are distinctive and always has an artistic twist. I also love Anais Mak for Jourden — It especially touches my heart as I mentored her from the start and she was the first Hong Kong fashion designer to be stocked by Opening Ceremony and Colette Paris — definitely one to watch!
You are running late, what is your ‘go to’ look?
What are your earliest memories of being inspired by someone’s style?
My mom is color-blind and she is a true fashionista! She boldly throw’s items together that surprising work — pairing her Georgio Armani’s with Issey Miyake’s! She instilled great taste in my sisters and I and the appreciation of the simple things in life, such as being able to see and play with colour.
