The Tatler 10: Queenie Rosita Law
The founder of Production Q speaks to us about overcoming adversity and her plans for the future
Queenie Rosita Law may be the granddaughter of the late Bossini founder Law Ting-pong however, she's been hard at work creating a name for herself. The founder of Production Q is becoming a regular on the social scene and most recently, she installed her sakura print artwork at Tycoon Tann which is on display until June 30. She tells us about her career aspirations and why she’s constantly working to make her ideas, a reality:
I find that Hong Kong is in a constant state of change, and it often forces people to be adaptable, I guess it’s a good and bad thing about this city.
Production Q is an innovative production house that offers art-focused lifestyle creations that inspire some sort of emotional engagement by weaving compelling imagery into a visual narrative.
My proudest accomplishment to date is Production Q’s recent publication of The City Book – Hong Kong. It was an idea I had for some time but I felt so intimidated by it for a while however, after two years my idea came to fruition when it was launched at the Mandarin Oriental earlier this year. The book is stocked in Hong Kong, Paris and Milan. Currently, we’re working on our second book The City Book – Singapore.
Looking back, I wish I could have trusted my instincts and been more open with my ideas earlier on in my life and career. I wish I had the confidence back then to do what I’m doing now, but I need to remind myself that hindsight is always 20/20.
I find inspiration in a lot of different people I meet in the creative industry, there’s far too many to name. I find anybody that has the strength and mental capacity to be different, and to follow their dreams to be very inspiring.
The best part about running your own business is that I’m able to create anything I’m passionate about and that each day presents a different set of challenges.
My advice to budding entrepreneurs is to be prepared to fight for what you want. Entrepreneurs should ideally band together and to support one another as nobody else understands the uncertainty and frustrations we face day in and day out.
My end goal is to help people find inspiration through their own creativity. I believe that art and design should be reachable and accessible to all audiences and that the home is the most intimate, personal space and usually the perfect starting point. I would ideally like to start sowing the seeds of art appreciation and to have a collection of creations, whether that’s artwork or objects that serve as a daily source of inspiration.
I find that people are quick to recognise someone else’s success but fail to recognise their own capabilities. My words to live by are simple: “If you believe it, you can achieve it.”
