Hi Nadia thank you for taking the time to answer our questions on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Thanks for having me! I am a fashion and movie writer based in Hong Kong, and I am also a Digital Marketer.
What is the inspiration behind creating WEAR?
When I was studying in University, I read a lot of fashion blogs everyday, like Garance dore, the Sartorialist, Jak n Jil….so I am thinking, Hong Kong should have a streetstyle page, not just a column in the magazine, so this is the reason I created WEAR Hong Kong. (The former name is WEAR Hong Kong streetstyle)
How will you describe the overall fashion sense and style in Hong Kong currently?
Polarization. As you can’t really see many fashionable people when you walk around Mong Kwok or even Causeway Bay; there are always full of people, tourists and nothing to capture. But on the other side, I can find some very stylish and fashionable people in Hong Kong. Indeed, they mostly appeared in Central, Sheung Wan Tai Ping Shan Street or Star street in Wanchai. They are more willing to stop by and talk with you. (Some of them became my friends now!) And actually some of the Hong Kong people really have their own style, they are super great.
Is the a fashion trend which you hope will make a comeback one day?
I miss the 80s in Hong Kong. During that time, the singers, movie stars all had strong characters, they can really lead the trend. And most of the people have good taste. For example, Leslie Cheung, one of my favorite and most successful singers in Hong Kong, held a concert in 2003, and all the costumes were designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier; his style was seen as an irreplaceable classic. And people nowadays cannot create “Magic” anymore. I hope people’s “judgement of taste” can be back.
Which is one clothing or fashion accessory you will never be caught wearing?
I never wear RED.
If you could have one chance to look into the future, what will you want to know?
I don’t want to look into the future.
What is an ideal first date to you?
Like the movie “Before sunset” or “Before sunrise”, so random and romantic.
It’s a pleasure to feature you Nadia. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is a kind of inner beauty, a woman that loves what she is doing is very sexy; a woman who loves life and isn’t ashamed to show it, that’s sexy too.
