It took me many years to embrace my Chinese heritage because it was that association: “Crazy Rich Asians” I stood against so much. I knew I could have anything growing up but my parents have firmly taught me, “don’t expect me to give you anything on a silver platter, you must work hard to earn it”. These wise words have played a huge relevance in my life to get to where I am today. I still got a lot to learn and do but today, I’m proud to be an Australian Born Chinese and I thank Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Creative Director of DIOR for celebrating and creating a voice for women like me to embrace my heritage and culture.
I wear DIOR from the AW18 Youthquake collection.

Ginger & Smart showcased its stunning AW18 collection at VAMFF 2018, and I was really fortunate to go behind the scenes to capture my desirable looks as well as experiencing the runway show thanks to AMPR. The show was presented by Marie Claire and supported by Priceline Pharmacy and it was captivating display of femininity, shimmer and a touch of confidence cool.

What I appreciate most about capturing street style at Christian Kimber presentations, is the diverse range of refreshingly modern take on Australian men’s style. Most of the guests that show up seem to have a very laid back and minimalistic approach to styling where comfort and high quality craftsmanship is a priority. Today was no different; and here are the highlights shot outside Bang and Olufsen venue on 33 Russell Street. Can you spot any of Christian Kimber footwear and accessories?
