When we asked Rebecca Minkoff to write a travel column for Chic, we knew she liked to get out of town. Now, we're convinced she's been everywhere. This week: Hong Kong.
“Change is inevitable, except for vending machines. Wiser words have never been spoken, right? This was the fortune that came after my first meal in Hong Kong. It was a whirlwind tour of factories, fabrics and fried food that inspired not only my creativity, but every one of my senses.
Hong Kong, I love you—because you make New York seem like a roomy oasis of wide open spaces!

Original Drawing by Cynthia Rowley for Chic Report View Gallery
She's done it again! Cynthia Rowley has invented another "unusual" item that she'd produce "if only" she had the time. Introducing the 'Precious Cargo' Travel Bag. The owner can blow up protective insulation pockets on the interior of the bag so that "precious cargo" isn't damaged in transit.

Up-and-coming designers are popping up everywhere and editors are on the lookout for the next Prabal. New York Fashion Week will host many new talents this month but one place to keep an eye on is G'DAY USA supported by The Woolmark Company. For over 50 years, names like Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, and Donna Karan have won the inaugural Woolmark Prize. This year, fashion designers showcased their innovative creations using Australian Merino wool at the Australian Consulate in NYC and the outcome was nothing short of breathtaking. Serpent & The Swan, a Sydney-based label run by two sisters, takes a dark twist to knitwear while Fujinella incorporates its wool into easy everyday separates with a downtown spin. On the hunt for a statement jewelry piece? Look no further than Lori Schwarz and Cynthia Ellis of Totomoto Australia. They'll give Pamela Love a run for her money!
