Back in July, Electric sekki proudly partnered up with 10 of Hong Kong's most inspirational creatives for our Les Artistes initiative. We worked with the extremely talented New York-based photographer, Daniel Garriga, and local photographic production agency, Elite Photography, to shoot 10 hand-selected bright young things in industries ranging from blogging to architecture to media production to music. The result? A gorgeous summer's day jam-packed with tons of fun, lots of beautiful FW '11 clothing, and even a brief painting session!It was such an honor to work with and be surrounded by so many talented, cool people for a whole afternoon, and it's safe to say that we've all become such great friends as a result of this fabulous collaboration. Hong Kong can often feel suffocating and full of people who work pretty standard 9-to-6 desk jobs, but if you look closely, you'll find a wonderfully gifted and unique set of individuals striving to make their own stylish mark on the world. See HKHQ.tv capture an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the Les Artistes initiative below.
