Guest Hunter, Joyce Hwang
our Guest Hunter, Joyce Hwang when we worked together a while back. She’s one of those people who’s super easy-going, always smiling and has fun with her style. Joyce was born and raised in Hong Kong, moved to the States to attend Northwestern University and then headed to New York to start her career in the fashion industry. Currently she’s living in Hong Kong where she’s Product Merchandiser for The Outnet (China) and in a few months will be moving to Shanghai to continue to work for the Net-a-Porter subsidiary.
For Joyce and fashion, no two days are the same. It’s a great way to “transform and innovate” she says. “One day I feel like being a hippie, the next day a business woman, the next a rocker.” She describes her style as “eccentric – easy looks with unexpected mixes while still feeling like myself and wearing clothes that make me happy”. She’s an individual and onto trends way before most, so KEEP READING to get schooled from this star.

Camera Strap by Artemis Leatherware
my hands on one of these camera straps from Artemis Leatherware. It’s much sleeker and prettier than the bulky strap that came with my camera. It’s also hand stitched and the perfect color leather – but also comes in dark brown, black and beige. Artemis Leatherware is based out of Hong Kong, and it seems like pretty much everything is made to order. I’m also digging the digital camera case, wallets and sophisticated totes too. The first things of 2012 (of many, I’m sure) added to my wish list.
