The Brave Adventurers - Cynthia & Xiao
They say being young gives you every reason to explore. As part of Lane Crawford’s “Created in China” programme, fashion brand Cynthia & Xiao is extremely active in collaborations apart from their apparels line. The talented duo, Cynthia and Xiao, began their friendship as dorm neighbours when attending Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design. Upon graduation, Cynthia pursued a luxury retailing career in Hong Kong, while Xiao embarked on fashion design and production. Eventually the two decided to join hands for the dynamic yet sophisticated Cynthia & Xiao. Exclusively interviewed by FASHIONALLY, co-founder Cynthia tells us about their latest adventures.    In September 2016, Cynthia & Xiao was invited to Milan Fashion Week as the only Hong Kong brand to be showcased in the Whiteast programme. Organised by Milan’s largest trade show, WHITE, Whiteast aims to present Chinese design to local buyers and fashion insiders. Entering its...

Painted like a Popstar
There are people that want what they see in campaigns and editorials. That’s what I’m offering. When it comes to fashion and beauty there is often a disconnect between what you see and what you get. Campaign images and airbrushed editorials tend to create a deceptive illusion surrounding a product – making it seem like it offers so much more than it actually does. For this reason, celebrity makeup artist and fashion photographer Donald Chiu decided to launch his makeup brand called POPSTAR – a brand that customers can trust will live up to their expectations. Chiu knows his stuff when it comes to beauty. He’s had a collective experience of 23 years in the makeup industry working with pretty much every single brand (Olay, Shiseido and Shu Uemura, which had an exclusive crossover collaboration with) and talent in Hong Kong including the late legend Anita Mui. After his initial 10 years of working as a makeup artist, he then decided to evolve as a visual ar...

5 Shops To Go on #hkfashionmap
Despite how online shopping and fast fashion make it easy to keep up with the latest trends, it is also easier to bump into your fashion “twin” if you only buy from major outlets. It’s time to go for  local design and special fashion boutiques and create your unique style, like the following five stylish boutiques on #hkfashionmap with FASHIONALLY.   AMENPAPA Established in 2007, AMENPAPA’s collections feature stories and quotes from the Bible. The brand not only sells apparel, but builds a connection between the 2,000-year-old classic and the modern world. Co-founder Leo Chan believes local design has a profound impact. “Look at creative capitals such as New York, London and Paris, you will realise that art and creativity reflect a city’s history and culture. As a member of the city, we must promote local design, as it also spurs the  economy and tourism.” Apart from the three shops in Hong Kong, the brand also has stockists in North America and several cities in Asia, such as Gale...
