One of the brightest stars in Hong Kong’s fashion scene, Cynthia studied at Central Saint Martins in London. She swiftly mastered the ropes of the sartorial business and her graduate collection earned her the praise of Italian Vogue, which included her on its list of new talent to watch.

The designer went on to cut her teeth under Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Roksanda Ilincic­—and back in Hong Kong, at IT and Lane Crawford. She founded Cynthia & Xiao with a fellow graduate, Beijing-born Xiao Xiao, in 2014. In the span of just a few seasons, the duo has turned the bold minimalist label into one of the hottest brands to come out of China. Our very own Phoebe Philo? You bet.
