Meet Macao's best fashion talents
“I started realising that I could be a designer when I was in college. My girlfriend at the time was a fashion major, and together we were able to make Comma Comma become a reality,” said soft-spoken David Siu.
Comma Comma’s brand philosophy is that simplicity is a style itself. “I want my customers to have the freedom to mix and match my designs with anything in their wardrobe,” said Siu.
Creative Vincent Cheang is a Macao-based radio personality, music producer and frontman in his band L.A.V.Y.
So what was the inspiration behind the latest collection of Worker Playground? “Macao is the host of the Formula Three Grand Prix each year, and we are a high-octane city. I have filtered this theme into this year’s collection to represent this element.”
Azalea Ho studied fashion design in the United States before returning to Asia to start up her brand in Shanghai.
Ho hopes her brand, Misazal, will empower women. “I’ve always wanted to create something that could give women the image of power they need to do their jobs, but feel comfortable and have the freedom to be themselves,” she said.
Salut, ça va ?
Born and bred in Macao, Akina Lei has always been focused on fashion design. When asked about the challenges she faced, she answered: “Well, Macao is a tiny city and sourcing and supply is always difficult. Call me optimistic, but there does seem to be more attention on Macao’s original designs. I hope that it means we will finally be able to take a step towards the international stage.”
