Alexandra Goes To China…
by Alexandra Leigh
As you may or may not know, I am currently running the Isaac Mizrahi division at my company, Elite Brands. A large part of this responsibility is overseeing the production and execution of this Luxury Camera Bag Collection. In light of that, I was shipped off to China to visit our factory! This experience was extremely humbling and more so, enlightening. Watching a team of incredible craftsman creating our collection, piece by piece, was overwhelming. I learned that as an american consumer, we often take the efforts behind building these products for granted. Seeing this side of the business allowed me to be much more aware and for that, I am grateful.
While in Hong Kong, on my last day and only day to explore, I decided to photograph the locals at the market. I’m so happy I had made the decision to visit the market rather than shop. What better way to experience the true energy and people of Old Hong Kong. Every part of this experience was beautiful, the colors… the faces… it was really visually overwhelming. A real photographers dream!
