Julia Gash, the Founder and CEO of Bag It Don’t Bin It Ltd and ethically focused accessory label: Talented , was in town last month as part of the GREAT Britain campaign, the UK Government’s initiative to showcase the very best of what Britain has to offer and she took a moment to speak to us about why she would want a lifetime of reflexology and her favourite thing about Hong Kong.
HKFG: What's on your lust list?
JG: A lifetime of reflexology (I’ve been enjoying plenty of foot massages in Hong Kong!), A Saab convertible and Liberty bags.
HKFG: What could you not live without?
JG: My two cats Bobby and Jimi (named after Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix)
HKFG: What’s your favourite thing about Hong Kong?
JG: The way that new design is embraced – I’ve come to Hong Kong as part of The GREAT Britain Campaign to connect with the business community and promote British design and creativity, but whether it’s local architecture, fashion or even design store concepts, I’ve been seriously impressed by the innovative ideas that are living and breathing in this city.
HKFG: What’s the song you sing in the shower?
JG: I’m tone deaf so I avoid singing! Michael Buble or something very classic like Somewhere Over The Rainbow
HKFG: Ultimate indulgence food
JG: The Great British tradition of afternoon tea – I find it calming, comforting, and very luxurious. I’ve actually incorporated this aspect of British heritage into a range of my bags.
HKFG: Name your secret-weapon beauty product.
JG: Sleep. 8 hours every night in a dark room.
HKFG: What's your worst nightmare?
JG: Having a conversation with someone and not just forgetting their name but who they actually are! It's happened … scary!
HKFG: What were your last five google searches?
JG: The five buildings that I included in the Hong Kong Live Cityscape I did at PMQ as part of The GREAT Britain Campaign.
