Hong Kong is a hive for handbags of every description, from high to low price points, and certainly reflects an array of international labels. But the city's product offering isn't just about those famous names. Several enterprising designers have launched their own businesses to bring something different — and local — to the market.
"There are quite a few of us in Hong Kong," observed Michelle Lai, who runs an eight-year-old brand called Mischa. "We're in the same city as a lot of decision-makers. It's at the gateway of sourcing and production — which is the supply chain of the fashion world."
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
