The HKDR put out a call for HK women to donate unworn or barely worn designer clothes for a benefit sale last week, and got so many donations they’re continuing again this week, and need help with spreading the word about all the goodies on offer! The sale will be continuing today and tomorrow from 11am to 7pm at Shop 118 of the Melbourne Plaza on Queen’s Road Central. Perfect for a lunchtime stop-in, you never know – you might pick up something to wear at the weekend. Though if you’re going to the Sevens, you might want to wait a while to wear any new purchases!
Hester is originally from the incredibly glamorous city of Bristol, in England. Determined to escape her West-Country roots (though a love of good scrumpy should never be lost) she packed off for uni at Oxford to waste several years on a degree in Philosophy and never looked back… Following a stint in Switzerland eating too much fondue and meeting her future husband, they jumped at the chance to follow their dream of heading to Asia, and landed in Hong Kong in 2008. Along with partners-in-crime and fellow Tai-Tais, Maura Thompson and Natalie Firestone, she founded Sassy in 2009 and then Sassy Mama in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Elodie. Number 2 daughter Margot arrived in August 2012 and then two months later it was off to her new home in Singapore with tinies in tow. Hester is discovering the Lion City one shophouse at a time with a love for seeking out Singapore’s hidden secrets!
