it’s always an exciting challenge to put together a stylish wardrobe for fashion week. more so when you’ve been on the move for the past month. hong kong fashion week started on the 13 January, and the former british colony was our seventh destination since the year begun ( and the fourteenth since the start of December 2013 ).
we were booked to produce three events for 25 designers in hong kong, so our outfits had not only to be chic but functional. no bondage sleeves, huge hats or impractical shoes. it had to look good with a pair of headphones on and an intercom set clipped to the waist, with matching clipboard of cue sheets.
with a luggage allowance of 50kg on singapore airlines to accommodate pieces for london, milan and florence , ho chi minh city and a couple of recce trips to hong kong prior to fashion week, the key was to pack a few statement pieces and recycle the rest in imaginative ways.
here’s what I ended up wearing for the four days. lemme know what you think.
