Who are your favourite designers?
For everyday I love the art of Dries Van Noten, the simplicity of Ellery, and the spice of Johanna Oritz. My dream closet would be 100% Valentino.
Whose wardrobe would you love to see on HULA?
If Sarah Harris’ wardrobe went up (Fashion Features Director at British Vogue), I would dye my hair grey and buy it all! She does refined casual flawlessly.
What would be the one iconic designer piece you would search for on HULA?
The last few Gucci or Dolce & Gabbana collections and Bouchra Jarrar’s namesake collection previous to her Lanvin takeover.
What is your favourite quote?
“Dressing well is a form of good manners” – Tom Ford
How would you describe your style?
Polished with personality.
What are your earliest memories of being inspired by someone’s style?
Seeing my mom wear a bright red cheongsam for a party in the middle of rural America. Who knew I would end up in Hong Kong one day!
