So I’ve just gotten back from my latest sourcing trip to Hong Kong, but this time I decided to keep a bit of a photo diary to share … by that I mean I flipped on my iPhone to Hipstamatic and went to town. Hardly a photographer in the making!
I do quite love going to Hong Kong. It’s a fun place to be, the dumplings are hard to beat and beers are bigger than they should be.
I’m excited to say that I found some amazing things that we will be developing for the brand for our AW 2012 collection. There’s streets and streets of fabric stores, buttons, beads, laces, trims, feathers, braids, prints, leather …. the list goes on. It’s actually completely overwhelming and each time I go I always leave with my head spinning full of ideas for the season ahead. I’m inspired.
But possibly the most amazing thing I noticed on this trip is that as people, human beings, although we are divided by culture and race and seas, if you strip that all away, we are all essentially the same. With the same hopes, dreams and insecurities all trying to make sense of the world and our place in it.
Thanks for the good times HK, be seeing you again real soon.
Peace & HK
