I recently learned about a designer in Hanoi that has a line of dresses and scarves devoted to Hong Kong. Chula Fashion also designs clothes and scarves inspired by New York, Vietnam, Japan, and Europe.
I couldn’t resist, so ordered a scarf from their Hong Kong collection.
I love the colors. When opened, this is one side of the scarf. This sign advertises a seafood restaurant. Hong Kong neon signs are a dying art, and I’ve seen a huge change from when I arrived in 1990 to when I last visited half a year ago. Neon signs are disappearing almost as fast as new buildings are sprouting up in the territory.
And the other side.
The scarf was pretty much made to order because there was a delay with the printing. But once it was ready to be shipped, it got here in two days flat.
Chula Fashion was started by a Spanish couple in Hanoi and employs over 60 people, 75% of whom have a physical disability. Check out their designs at Chula Fashion.
