Make Some Noise…

I already showcase local fashion designers at THE REFINERY so am happy to be supporting local Hong Kong designers at Design Market PMQ. I was recently invited to be an ambassador for Design Market and to style outfits to help promote local fashion designers. I instantly  homed in on the menswear designers.  I like mixing up menswear into my outfits to get that “just borrowed from the boyfriend” tomboy look. The Design Market @ PMQ is set to create a regular Sunday buzz in Hong Kong by hosting market stands for local apparel, jewellery, accessories and homeware designers to sell their products to the public. The dates of the 1...

Styling Musings

I was recently asked “how do you style?” by a fashion student. This simple question made me think about what I do and my creative process, and also made me reflect on what styling means in the age of social media and digital fashion. Let me start by saying there is no right or wrong when it comes to putting together creative work…everyone has a different method. For me, creativity comes naturally but a big part of it is also working with other experienced and creative people to learn and develop ideas. Having my own brand has been the best learning experience, not just in terms of learning how to run a business, designing and ...

Viva Palm Springs

Most guides to Palm Springs mention Ace Hotel so we went to investigate what all the fuss is about… The laid back lobby area… The popular pool area is the main draw for hipsters to soak up the rays, people watch and down cocktails… No time for a dip…we were there to fill our tums before exploring more of Palm Springs! We satisfied Hubby's diner cravings at the King's Highway diner… The adjoining Amigo Room is a cavernous bar that had a touch of Robert Rodriguez about it. The banquet tables are covered with (real?) Mexican bank notes… It's fitting that Palm Springs should host the 3 storey high Forever Marilyn statu...

The Parker Palm Springs

I needed rest and relaxation after a manic September. Hubby prescribed a dose of Californian blue skies so off we flew! Having already visited Los Angeles earlier this year, we decided to experience a desert resort and settled on Palm Springs. We were lured by its reputation (since the 1920s) as Hollywood's desert playground for celebrities to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of showbiz. The "Two Hour Rule" of Hollywood studios put Palm Springs on the map as a perfect getaway. Actors under contract had to be available within two hours from the studio just in case they were summoned for last minute filming. In Hollywoo...
