As a self-confessed shopaholic, I often find myself looking for different places to shop during a dinner break or in the middle of a sleepless night. During those moments we often enter an online shop without knowing where to shop or what to look for. If you need a shop which A- Support Asian Online Brands , B- Well Organised , C- Gives you inspiration on the latest trends and directs you to the pieces they have available then Cross The Line is the Shop for you.
Launched in August 2014, Cross The Line is an Online Platform which promotes up and coming fashion designers both in Hong Kong and Around Asia. At the moment, they have 6 Fashion brands for HK and 5 Designers in Taiwan with many more to come in the future. One of the things I find special about Cross The Line is the fact that every month, they will have a feature which serves as Inspiration for the styles of that month available in the shop. This not only allows easy access but also inspires us to look for pieces in our wardrobe which goes with our online purchases. Also, it is a platform which not only supports HK Fashion Talents, but also introduces you to talents in Taiwan or different parts of Asia.
Without further dodads, here are my favourite pieces from each designer available at Cross The Line.
