Lane Crawford collaborates with New York fashion brand rag & bone to extend its renowned DIY project this Autumn/Winter with eight leading fashion influencers in Hong Kong and Beijing to express the attitude and chic-yet-elegant style of the brand through fashion and photography.
The eight fashion influencers including fashion bloggers Tina Leung, Cindy Ko, Danielle Huthart and Kevin Poon from Hong Kong; as well as fashionistas Da Meng Meng, Sammy Liang, Tian Yuan and musician-cum-blogger Kung Ling Qi from Beijing, were all given a camera and dressed in rag & bone Autumn/Winter 2011 collections to record their own interpretation of style and lives through photos taken by themselves.

Earlier in September, the Autumn/Winter 2011 DIY Project kicked off with models Karolina Kurkova, Carolyn Murphy and Miranda Kerrand, and marks its appearance in Asia with the esteemed Korean actress Mina Shin Min-A, who was also given the same remit: to interpret rag & bone in her own personal way. The result is a collection of raw and candid images shot in her hotel and on the beach in Busan, Korea, then followed by the eight fashion influencers from Hong Kong and Beijing.

The project flips the traditional photo-shoot on its head by making the model a stylist, creative director and subject of her own work. The result is an intimate collection of photographs that depict each girl’s unique perspective and personality.
