Kanch and I were talking this week about the dos and don'ts of fashion and even though trends come and go and rules change, there are a few things that will always apply. 

Here are some of our major fashion dos and don'ts

1. Length: Do experiment with lengths of your clothes like skirts, dresses, and tops fo example. Midi skirts and dresses are becoming increasingly popular and take on the 40s and 50s look. But, DON'T wear micro skirts and shorts because it’s so last season. 

2. Basics: Do stock up on your basics such as the LBD, denim shorts, white tees and black trousers as these pieces will never go out of style. Although basics are our comfort zones, don't always rely on your basics. DON'T always go plain jane, dress up your basic look with funky and chunky jewelry or wear a brightly coloured jacket or heels. 

3. Statement: Do make a statement with your outfit, wear at least one thing that stands out, whether it's jewelry or maybe some red trousers. DON'T hide in a fashion shadow, stand out.... 

4. Body: Be aware of your body shape, wear clothes that flatter your figure and enhance your curves or invest in a pair of good quality spanx. DON'T wear ill-fitting garments. Be body conscious, don't wear super tight jeans and a short top if you're spilling out the top of your jeans. 

5.Donate: Do donate your unworn or out of season clothes to charity, DON'T throw them away; there are people that need it more than you.

Our picks for certain body types: 

Wear items that are figure hugging but not too tight. Wearing pieces that accentuate your waist are great such as items with a waist band or are high waisted. 

Items that are slightly baggy are flattering for slim figures but make sure something is accentuated such as your waist to balance your look

In August we created our first Atma workshop to raise money for those that can't afford an education in India.

Kanch had a vision about starting a Hong Kong chapter of a charity and felt that Atma (India) was a perfect fit for her so I am proud to say that Kanch is the founder of the Hong Kong division! 

To kick off our fund raising we teamed up with Shoe Artisrty- Made In Hong Kong, along with Kanchan Couture, Atma, and wine sponsor Pietro Becoucini to educated people about Bespoke Shoes and the dying art that we are trying to revive. Owners Jeff and Kit of Shoe Artistry talked a little bit about how to make the shoes as well as getting the shoe master to demonstrate the stages and tricks he uses. We also all got a hands on approach and got to cut our own pieces of leather and draw on our lasts. 

Everyone really enjoyed it and learnt something new which we're all really happy about and because it was so popular we've decided to go for round 2! 

So join us on October 26th for only $200 HKD which 50% of it will be donated to Atma.

RSVP soon so you don't miss out!
Love, Petra

Fashionably Late Update

Hello fashionistas!

I'm sorry it's been a few weeks but we've been ever so busy with the Hong Kong Jewelry Fair and our Charity events recently that we haven't had time to update you all.

But, we're back now and I just wanted to share some of our latest endeavors.
So 2 weeks ago we participated in the Hong Kong Jewelry Fair which Kanch and I get excited about every year for a couple of reasons, 1. We get to show our jewelry and new collections, 2. Meeting fabulous new people and new clients, 3. Dressing up in our heels and dresses and finally 4. The vintage section- of course.

This time around we had more jewelry to show to buyers and clients, about 14 more collections than last year and Kanch and I were running around our little chic booth prepping, calculating, tagging, and talking.
It certainly paid off and we had a lot of people interested in our designs which we're ecstatic about and even had a visit from a former Miss Asia for purchase a couple of items and made a request about one of our earrings which i customized for her!

Check out the pictures below!

Love, Petra
