Once a lawyer, Dana Trang now helps Hong Kong brides-to-be and ladies prepping for a glamourous night out find their perfect gowns at Hitched, her newly expanded bridal boutique in Sheung Wan.
Ladies looking to make a Hollywood entrance need look no further than Trang's collection of designer gowns including Rivini, David Fielden and celebrity favourite ML Monique Lhuillier (who has been worn by the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Vanessa Minnillo and Ginnifer Goodwin).
A dog lover and Lanvin fanatic, Trang gives us a glimpse into the Hitched boutique and a typical day in her life through her Instagram photos:
Buffy is less of a morning person than I am. She looks at me like this nearly every morning with an expression that says “Do I really need to get up?”
An early morning stroll around the neighbourhood with my dogs Buffy and Penny really helps wake me up!
Yes, I am clearly an accessories junkie. My drawer is filled with bits and pieces from the streets of Soho in NYC to Topshop and Iosselliani. Maybe it’s time to get another drawer…
My must-have start of the day is a coffee at my favourite local coffee shop in Sheung Wan, Barista Jam!
Sheung Wan is filled with friendly neighborhood stores. I always buy my flowers and plants from Gary who is just down the street. Perhaps some lilies for today?
Browsing through latest bridal magazines to see what’s new and guess what I saw? One of our favorite brands, Rivini’s latest ad campaign! Simply gorgeous.
This Rivini dress is one of my favourites at the store right now. My own wedding gown was lace and I'm still partial to it! Look at the details -- each layer's lace pattern is different and the embellished belt complements the dress perfectly. It looks much better on than on a hanger!
Makeup and hair by E.law at The Look Studio. I first met E.law at my wedding four years ago and we’ve kept in touch ever since. She is one of the sweetest people I
know and absolutely the best to work with!
Trying to walk naturally around the store and looking at the gowns for the NOW TV interview shoot. It's seriously not as easy as it looks. I had to do it five times before I got it right!
Ladies never say no to sweets, especially beautiful ones like these! These wedding cake pops from Beyond Dessert are my favourite. They add sweetness and fun to anyone's dream wedding!
Time to get changed for dinner. Here are my favourite and the most comfortable flats in the world (seven pairs and counting!)...
I’m so ready for bed after a long day but Buffy keeps on bringing me the ball for a game of fetch. It's hard to say no to that kind of persistence -- game on!
