About Me

hello!

Thank you for being interested in knowing more about this space and me.

 

My name is Judy.

 a578cc7396ca19e8caea7e0e9908be9d

But some of you may know me as Hoi Yin which I sometimes like to think of as my ‘professional name’ although actually, it’s my Chinese name. I know, it’s confusing.

I graduated in BA (Hons) Fashion Design from the University for the Creative Arts, Rochester in 2014 with a 2:1. Actually, I was 1% off from a First which to an extent grates me but instead I’ve turned it into a reminder to always work hard – even for 1% progress. I have a keen eye for colour and texture and always look to use them in a playful nature. I am particularly interested in the technical side of Fashion and how garments are made and come to life. I love process and progress!

All creative things aside, my tutor at university who I am nicknaming ‘M’ told me I had a real knack at writing after submitting a couple of reflective statements throughout the year. I wasn’t convinced at first but his words became of encouragement. Since then, I created this blog to share, create and communicate with you all my passions, my thoughts, my perspective. Enjoy!

  1. Nice to meet you Judy! Fashion is awesome! I’m glad you are blogging. It’s such a great way to learn, meet others, and express yourself! I’m still learning too! I think one should always be learning. That’s how we grow! I wish you the best! Koko 🙂

    • Thank you so much Koko and nice to meet you too! I’m glad that we have this in common 🙂 Thank you for visiting my page and we should definitely connect more!

  2. O wow! 1%?!?!? that’s such a bummer. You have quite a refreshing blog over here.

    Is this the Zuki theme? I used Zuki when I was still on WordPress. Love the look so much.

    Do you speak any Chinese?

    • Yep 1%! Quite cruel but it’s okay, I’ve learnt it’s more process than result. A grade is really just a number sometimes.

      It is the Zuki theme indeed! It’s the only theme I thought suitable for my content. I had thought to change and even go self-host but I think WordPress.com is beginning to spoil its users…or at least for me, it is more than enough. 😛

      I speak Cantonese primarily, and some Hakka dialect. I can speak Mandarin if I put my mind to it, but it’s not the best for sure.

      • I speak Cantonese too 😆 ja, sometimes I have regret having moved to self host. WP has definitely up their game. If they changed the policy before I moved, I would have stayed
