    That's a really good point. People often forget about the environmental impact of all the shipping back and forth. I was definitely thinking more about sustainable fashion in the sense that the designer is making a very conscious effort to only source sustainable materials and/or produce in an ethically sustainable way. You're totally right about the impact of the shipping though. This would be a very relevant consideration - also pertains more to the online ordering rather than, say, a pop-up done locally.

I know that's not important to everyone, but it is to me.
    Anything you do in HK would need to have friendly staff with people skills, otherwise people like me will just continue to avoid shopping here and do it in places where it's a given.
    Yes, the experience is everything! Thanks for the feedback!

    Hi Anqi

    I just moved to HK a year ago. I love Aussie labels and online shopping doesn't seem to be the norm here. Yes to all of the above, I would buy them on a regular basis for sure if they were available online. Another idea is to let users opt for a cheaper shipping option where you ship say 10 orders at once to HK to a distribution centre (ie friend's house or wherever) and then buyers have a stipulated time to collect them. Might only work if you have a base in HK.

    Hope this helps
