Since setting up her floral business Ask A French Flowers last year, this Parisian transplant has become a sought-after specialist for blooms with that South of France bucolic charm. This month, her agenda is packed with conducting Christmas wreath-making workshops and prepping for holiday bouquet orders. After that: a series of workshops with Kim Anh Doan – founder of Viet food and lifestyle journal T.Pot – planned for the first quarter of 2018 in Singapore, Hanoi and Chiang Mai.

She stole the show at the recent Singapore Fashion Week, when she opened for minimalist womenswear label Ginlee Studio with a showstopping voguing repertoire. Off the catwalk, the events manager of nightlife and F&B company Kilo is part of the team that secured one of this year’s biggest indie nightlife gigs, featuring Tunisian EDM DJ Loco Dice in September at Kilo Lounge. Expect more parties there come January, with sets by artistes from the US, Germany and Sweden.

While this Hong Kong-born marketing guru has dabbled in everything from travel, fashion and luxury watches, her upcoming project is something more personal. Called Everyday (launching March 2018), her debut line of “unsung heroes in your bathroom cabinet” features a five-piece personal care range (complete with witty tag lines) researched and made in Australia using non-toxic ingredients. Cue the Green Screen sunscreen made from kale and spinach extract, or the Really Nice Pits deodorant featuring sweet orange oil and lemon myrtle oil. Pre-orders available at from February 2018.
