There’s nothing Min and I love more than a 10-minute photoshoot — except maybe a cocktail. This time around, I trekked from Chelsea to Min’s studio in East London played a little dress up with her AW16 collection and even got a sneak peak at SS17.
I’m channeling Londontown with a decidedly Brit hi-lo look of Burberry Brit and Topshop.
It was great getting to know Min in our short time together over lunches, dinners and cocktails discussing everything from wine tours to production in China. Based in London and from China, Min is a natural ‘Nomad fit so this week I’m going to mix things up with the ‘Nomads series.
I can’t wait to share my amazing experiences at the Origins Fair with Not Just A Label with my ‘N A Perfect World… audience. The fair re-energized me and reminded me why I liked to work with emerging designers. These people were not only inspiring and talented but they also had their affairs in order and were burgeoning ethical business owners. One of the designers that I formed a bond with was London-based, Min Wu. I have some great content with Min coming soon, and trust me, this Vogue Italia darling is hilarious as she is talent. During the last moments of Origins, while I was packing up my booth, Min came over with my favorite skirt from her collection. I dug into my suitcase for shoes while Min found a top. After changing in the booth, we pinned the samples (a stylist is always prepared!), ran outside and there happened to be an Italian fire brigade. Voilà… we had a casual editorial. 😉 Here’s a quick outtake from my upcoming interview with Min!
