Since landing in Hong Kong I’ve been eager to connect with this city’s fashion community. Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Melissa Bui Spring/Summer 2015 Press Preview (thanks to Nick for getting me here). Melissa is a local luxury womens’ designer and this event showcased her upcoming Opaline Blossom collection. This gorgeous 50’s inspired collection focuses on dainty embroidery, old versus new contrast, and vintage silhouettes.

I was thoroughly impressed when Melissa told me that each of her pieces are individually crafted by hand. That’s striped pieces in this collection have natural brush strokes.

This collection’s signature dress, the pansy dress, is a show stopper. I love its modern shape and its clustered flower embroidery.
