Made in HK: Are You Taking Me Out

Vintage stores are relatively hard to find in Hong Kong and while my definition of vintage shopping comprises of going through my mom’s closet (her Chanel 2.55 from the late eights/early nineties is my ultimate find), not many are as lucky as me. Etsy has a plethora of vintage finds and I stumbled upon Are You Taking Me Out while looking for designers to feature. Now before you point your finger and say that this doesn’t fulfil the criteria of a “Made in HK” feature, note that the owner behind the Are You Taking Me Out brand also creates her own handbags and clutches. In fact, if I’m being honest, I’d much rather prefer her handmade accessories compared to vintage finds but then again, that’s coz the closet is a free for all and in the next room.

Fun Facts
My inspiration comes from everything such as different cultures, vintage finds and trends. Currently I am really into 50's style and Japanese fabrics.

My brother came up with the name and I love it!

Best selling piece
Gamaguchi purses

Rigid fabrics for easy manipulation

Piece you can't part with
The midnight garden gamaguchi purse, I just adore the patterns on it!
