Cynthia Mak was first exposed to arts through her studies in graphics design. She then attended the Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design (CSM) to further pursue her interests. There, she was immersed in a sea of young, talented fashion students whose strong passion and skills inspired her to begin her new journey in fashion.

Beginning afresh in a new field, she devoted her life in learning about fashion and constructing garments. With her enthusiasm and endless hours of work, she graduated from CSM with distinction. Her strong final collection also garnered her the praise of Italian Vogue by naming her as a designer to watch out for and including her in their list of “New Talents”.

After working in Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Preen by Thornton and Roksanda Illincic, she returned to her hometown, Hong Kong, and worked in I.T. and Lane Crawford, two large scale luxury fashion retailers. However, her ambition remains in the line of fashion design and consequently started her first collection in 2014. The brand takes from her roots and combines both graphics and fashion together to bring boldness and modernity to her first collection.

Her spring/summer 15 lookbook popped up in my inbox today.
Thankfully,  she invitated us to her gorgeous collection ,will be showing in both London and Paris Fashion Week. We can’t wait . !

Brand : The World Is Your Oyster , AW14 “We used to be us”

Designer : Calvin Chan & Joyce Kun

Description :   The World Is Your Oyster is a newly established Hong Kong-based menswear label founded by two designers. It aims to provide the essential style and quality for the gentlemen of the new generation. Our vision of menswear embraces the characteristic of formal tailoring with a touch of the street wear elements from the youngsters’ influence. Our collections often feature clean silhouette and surprising choice of material to give just the right amount of drama.  We both think that each of the design has its own story to tell. Our distinct aesthetic is achieved by playing great attention to small details in all of the designs, creating a twist in an unexpected and modern way. We do not like to play loud in our designs. We believe guys who wear The World Is Your Oyster will be a subtle modern gentleman that seek for quality. The AW14 collection is now available in JOYCE boutique’s “JOYCE | CARES” shop in PMQ in Central of Hong Kong as a pop-up for 3 months. (“JOYCE | CARES” is a platform that aims at nurturing upcoming artists and designers)

Designers say: The world is our oyster.
