How would you describe London?
Leader, Energetic, Innovative, Cosmopolitan.
Where in the world is your favourite fashion destination?
I am slightly conflicted as living in Hong Kong I think the fashion here is smart and structured but still fun. London is in my blood and the London fashion scene is always ahead of it’s time and is a leader in the fashion world and is constantly pushing the boundaries
This season, Pure London is celebrating creativity without boundaries. What does that mean to you?
Creativity without boundaries to me is free flowing ideas, innovation and creation. There are no factors or limiting factors influencing or prohibiting your thinking or your desire to create
