After an amazing time in India visiting suppliers, finding inspiration and discovering one of the new world wonders. I had some last minute inspiration on the Dilli Hatt market and from there I went directly to the airport and off to Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is so completely different from India. So organized and so up-to-the-minute with everything from transportation to buildings – in the coolest way. I love the city and the entire clever Chinese wisdom behind it. The Hong Kong Chinese people are so friendly and I always feel very welcome here. In fact I think Hong Kong is one of the easiest cities to be a foreigner in.
But I also learned about this city from the best – Meet Wai my co-designer (or partner in crime) on 2ND DAY. He’s born in Hong Kong and therefore he knows all the fantastic places and where to go here. Besides this he’s an amazing designer with a huge talent and I’m so privileged and happy to work with him.
Wai and I met today when I arrived and we will be visiting our suppliers together. We will mostly be designing 2 ND DAY jeans and knitwear here in Hong Kong.
अलविदा भारत = Farewell from beautiful India.
Last minute inspiration (I only had 1 hour here) at Dilli Haat marked. One of my favorite markets in Dehli.
This huge Delhi market has been deliberately made to feel like a traditional weekly village market, called a haat. Small thatched roof cottages with a village atmosphere give it great ambiance. The market offers an exciting blend of handicrafts from all over India, food, and cultural and music performances. The entry fee is 15 rupees (35 cents). Don’t miss it!
香港你好 = Hello Hong Kong – Asia’s world city and yes – It really is!

This is Wai Co-Designer on 2 ND DAY.
And here we both are on the first night in Hong Kong looking for inspiration in one of many malls with late night opening hours.
