Jaeger-LeCoultre

October last year, I had the greatest privilege working with Jaeger-LeCoultre for a week long event featuring their delicate pieces from the Rendez-Vous watch collection. Thank you for having me in Hong Kong as a guest illustrator, I'm so in awe of the beautifully crafted timepieces in this collection!

Recognised for its undisputed elegance and intricate detailing, the Rendez-Vous collection was a new challenge, yet simply a joy for me to illustrate. I was so blown away with the watches' rich clear dials coupled with the subtle intricacies of its hands and numerals. I couldn't help but fall in love with each and every piece!

Here are some of my illustrations of the collection featured on the exclusive door gifts for invited guests...

For the event, I used rose, iris, alstroemeria and sunflower petals for my dresses to complement the Rendez-Vous collection's timeless appeal. Also, I had the luxury of pairing a variety of looks and dresses to the stunning time pieces. Follow along my inspirations behind some of the dresses I created for the Rendez-Vous...

 Using rose petals, I created a resplendent gown to pair with the beautifully crafted Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch.

Reinterpreting these pieces through my illustrations was a dream and I'm immensely grateful for this experience. The enchanting timepieces inspired me and my flower creations tremendously. Also, thank you all who came down to visit me at International Financial Centre, Hong Kong. I'm so glad to have met everyone of you!
