BUENOS AIRES > PARIS > HONG KONG

The most talked about catwalk during Paris Fashion Week just arrived in Hong Kong.  

Dries-Van-Noten

Last September, during Paris Fashion Week, Belgian designer Dries Van Noten sent his summer 2015 collection down a runway that resembled a mossy forest path.  Nearly twice the length of a tennis court, it was actually a carpet created by Alexandra Kehayoglou, a 33-year-old Argentine artist who spent 16 days hand stitching it together, then shipped it in pieces to Paris and reassembled it right before the show.

Alexandra’s artisan workshop, that produced the carpet, is located just outside Buenos Aires.

The textured, multicolored terrains came together in less than a month.  After a special viewing myself, it is even more spectacular in person.  If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, and your favorite color happens to be green, I suggest visiting the PMQ to see this amazing piece of art.  Located in the Cube, the exhibit ends Sunday, March 29th.

Hi. Welcome to Hong Kong… according to Ken. Me! I’m a Texas guy that now lives in Hong Kong. I left my life as I knew it, to start a new life. One filled with unfamiliar sites, languages, foods, smells, culture and people. This “leap of faith” is still leaping, but I’m beginning to see the ground beneath me. If you ever wondered what it would be like to pack your bags, say good bye to everyone you know, jump on a plane to another world- then get ready. Here’s a look at life in Hong Kong… according to Ken.
