Fang Fong Projects
Deep in the heart of SoHo, this airy boutique showcases emerging designer and co-owner Wu Lai-fan, who matches traditional Asian fabrics with modern silhouettes (trench coats made from Thai silk; shifts cut from vintage kimonos). Initial consultations with the designer usually run an hour, with several follow-up appointments. Wu can also help you accessorize; displayed in the shop are silk belts, double-sided wraps and other handpicked accessories as well as leather boots that she’s designed. Get in there quick, the word is spreading about Wu: her 1980’s-style blazers with puffed shoulders from her autumn collection have been a runaway hit among Hong Kong’s smart set.
