FLOWER MARKET VISIT
FLOWER MARKET VISIT IN 3.1 PHILLIP LIM
As Chinese New Year is right around the corner, Emma and I decided to drop by the Flower Market to pick up a few blooms to decorate our place with (jokes). In this collaboration with Lifestyle Asia HK I was lucky enough to have Emma dressed in 3.1 Phillip Lim's 2015 Resort Collection and accessories from The 9th Muse. You can take a look at the original article published on Lifestyle Asia here, where Yi Li walks you through the basics of CNY flowers and their meanings.
I really liked the pink dress, while Emma was more of a fan of the blue one which really complemented her neckline. Both dresses featured intricate detail, and the soft pastel hues of pink and baby blue went really well with the bright and vibrant flowers in the background. Passersby kept taking photos of Emma while we were shooting, and even the store owners (who we were originally afraid would shoo us away) were excited to see us shooting alongside their plants. Orchids, peonies, pussy willows and chrysanthemums filled the Flower Market with pops of color and smell. If you haven't been to the flower market yet, it's worth taking a stroll (if not to actually buy any flowers, taking some Instagram pics would also be nice).
It's been a while since I've done a full-fledged editorial with a whole team and designer clothes, so I was very excited to share this story with all of you.
If not for Chinese New Year, maybe some blooms for Valentines Day? (In hindsight I should've posted my V-Day post before this one, oh well.)
