How do you get accesses to fashion shows?
How many languages do you speak?
I speak fluent American English (it's my first language), Cantonese (Hong Kong) and quite fluent in Mandarin. I'm hoping to add French and German to my list, give me some time, but I've memorized a few basic lines of Russian, German, Polish, Italian, Spanish, Korean and Japanese just to freak people out.
Where do you normally shop?
I normally hit the big stores that carry an eclectic range of designers so I can pick and choose. Selfridges, Liberty, Layers London, Dover Street Market, etc. Obviously that's cause it saves time, but I do like visiting individual boutiques as it feels more personal, showrooms are even better!
What is the tallest pair of heels you've worn?
8 inches, but that's actually a tricky question, since number 1: I never wear "heels", I wear wedges, flatforms or chunky soles, and number 2: the tallest pair of heels I wore was 8 inches but it was heel-less.
Who's your favorite designer?
I don't really have one favorite designer... I have favorite collections from several designers. But I usually like to check up on Balenciaga, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Meadham Kirchhoff, Haider Ackermann, Givenchy, Celine, Proenza Schouler, Prada, Rad Hourani, Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou, Acne, Margiela, Junn. J, Song Zio, etc. there are actually so many but those are the ones off the top of my head.
What inspires your designs?
It changes all the time... At the moment I'm quite into looking at contemporary jewelry designs and reading 18th century French poetry.
Who's your idol(s)?
Don't really have one actually, just never found one who represented who I wanted to be. But there are of course certain qualities that I like in certain people, so I guess I'd pick some here and there.
Are you worried you won't make it big in fashion?
Of course, but that doesn't mean I'm going to sit at home panicking out about that. I just take what I have to offer and show it to the world. If I am honestly pleased with my work, and the world likes it, my work is done.
If you can't be a designer, what other career(s) will you pursue?
I've always been quite interested in being a buyer, so maybe I'd do that. Or maybe even some freelance writing and editing, like being an editor-at-large or a consultant or even a creative director.
Do you consider yourself as a fashion blogger?
Not entirely, but I guess what I'm doing IS fashion blogging. Perhaps I'd say I'm a freelance fashion blogger, but definitely not full time, I can't afford that lifestyle at the moment.
