上星期提及我應Jimmy Choo邀請,作客英國駐馬來西亞領事館。Jimmy這個時裝界殿堂級人馬,毫無架子兼很願意提攜後輩。連我這介黃毛小子,這位國際時尚icon也待如半個徒弟,拉著我滿場飛。這位師傅對自己的門生會是如何關愛照顧,可想而知。
手袋設計師Illiza Ho算是Jimmy正式入室弟子,Jimmy對她的自豪是溢於言表的。也難怪,Illiza以自己全名創立的品牌,在國際舞台上炙手可熱,師傅怎會不面上生光?Illiza的實力毋庸置疑,她的設計很有幾何感,顏色鮮艷,極具都市時尚氣息,卻又滲著點點夢幻,獨特得令人一見傾心。Illiza本人長得標緻清秀,且有留英學生特有的淡定氣質。Illiza說,留學英國對他影響深遠。她畢業於倫敦時裝學院,覺得能在這充滿傳統文化、藝術、設計的國家接受薰陶,是一件幸福的事。她也感恩英國的導師很落力領導學生去發掘自己的潛能,提倡設計不是紙上作業,鼓勵要作不同的實驗探索,這為她帶來了很深的啟發。
Illiza是在倫敦透過朋友介紹下認識Jimmy Choo的。彼時Jimmy正要為他馬來西亞的手袋設計師朋友找實習學徒。Illiza走馬上任,一年後直接當了Jimmy Choo的助理設計師。她說在大師身邊的日子,學藝之餘也學了許多做人的道理。
Jimmy Choo愛護新晉,鼓勵他們自己振翅高飛。Illiza創立自己的品牌,便多得Jimmy的支持和鼓舞。她表示創業的路上也有迷惑的時候,例如原來要打造自己的品牌,身份就不只是設計師,還是位生意人,要在創作與商業兩者中取得平衡,對她是個很大的挑戰。「我要兼顧生意上的每一個範疇,例如網站設計、宣傳活動等,對我來講真不容易。惟有堅持下去,兼處處提醒自己要盡力。」Illiza說。
創業有多困難?Illiza與我都經歷過,講起來特別有共鳴。她說當初是靠不斷向身邊有經驗的朋友請教,最終才克服到各種困難。我想起領事館作客的晚宴上,Jimmy Choo也不斷重複用他獨特的馬拉口音廣東話提醒我們:「做人要不恥下問!」這點他的愛徒Illiza果然學到了也做到了,從中更是獲益良多。

#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.
