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.
