Designers. I'm talking independent designers. The ones that have their own little boutique hidden in the back streets. I saw loads of them in Australia and Hong Kong. Shame I didn't have enough space in my suitcase to splash out on the million of items I fell in love with. Seriously, I had to pinch myself. Control my hands. It was torture! Especially in Hong Kong. I promise to fly back there some time soon and make my bank manager very unhappy! Of course, that means making him happy for a long time before I can do that. In other words, cash in before splashing out.
I'd love to spread the word and tell all on the whereabouts of these stores, but unfortunately with my sense of direction skills, quite frankly I can't remember the exact location! I was too excited with the gorgeous clothes to care what street I was on. That's why I'm glad I had a local to take me around. There were loads everywhere, but I particularly remember a shopping centre full of these stores. I'd like to say it was somewhere around Tsim Sha Tsui (I know, not very helpful). A very small, tight (typical of Hong Kong) shopping centre with floors of independent boutiques.
