【信報:校友直播室】偶像Jimmy Choo
早前作客英國駐馬來西亞領使館,晚宴後參加學校旅行的小學生,心情興奮得久久不能平復,首先當然要多謝邀請我的周仰傑。
 
香港人或許不知周仰傑何許人也?但只要一講出其英文名,大家必定如雷貫耳:Jimmy Choo,世界著名設計師,他設計及製作的鞋子風靡全世界,連英女皇及已故戴安娜王妃也對之青睞有加。Jimmy Choo是我的偶像,也是我不知幾生修道而得的亦師亦友。
 
提攜後輩
Jimmy Choo的中英文名各有其貼切處,一如其中文名,他擁有令人敬仰的傑出才華,但他為人又似其英文名Jimmy親切可愛。出生於馬來西亞檳城,據說天才洋溢的他於11歲時已造出生平的第一對鞋。後來負笈英國,1983年畢業於Cordwainers Technical College。難以被掩蓋的才華,加上他自己的努力,令Jimmy Choo很快晉身國際舞台,成為美不勝收鞋子的代名詞。2000年,他被祖家馬來西亞賜封為「拿督」,2009年,倫敦藝術大學授予他「榮譽學士」的銜頭。他對英國製鞋及時裝產業的貢獻,也令他得到OBE勳銜。
 
作為時裝界的icon,Jimmy身形修長,衣著更加是無懈可擊。這次英國領使館晚宴上,我由衷稱讚他的西裝好看,他竟高興得說要馬上送一套給我。
 
這就是Jimmy,身為成就非凡的前輩卻毫無架子。英國教育令他明白做人要取諸社會,還諸社會。他時英國文化協會的英國校友國際大使,多年來他都騰出寶貴時間,不遺餘力團結五湖四海內的英國校友,同時也積極提攜後輩。他體會過一個年輕人出到社會工作的徬徨,深明在商場Networking的重要,他很感激英國文化協會曾協助他建立人脈關係,現在他也要作出回饋,樂於為新晉一輩建立橋樑。每次見面,都見Jimmy熱心把自己的徒弟介紹給在場所有人認識,這一次,他也拉著我,把我介紹給全場與會人士認識,猶如我是他的半個徒弟-我不屬於時裝產業界別,只是心口掛了個「勇」字,為創業橫衝直撞的黃毛小子,竟得殿堂級設計師如此關顧,哪能不興奮得一夜難眠?
 
Jimmy的設計為世上許多女士的腳下添光,他同樣令人敬仰的,還有真誠為新一輩鋪出腳下青雲路的那顆熱心。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
