“Women of Hong Kong is not just about creating opportunities for women but about building a more inclusive, equitable and just society for everyone,” says Sarah Vee, the founder of Women of Hong Kong (WOHK), to TMS. “We want to show the world that women can uplift and empower one another, and it does not have to be lonely at the top. I hope that more people will join us on this journey to create a brighter future for women in Hong Kong and beyond.”
WOHK stands as a vibrant testament to the unwavering spirit of women in this bustling city, a testament to their strength, unity and camaraderie. Beyond mere community, it serves as a powerful movement dedicated to fostering support, inclusivity and empowerment.
Welcome to TMS x WOHK's latest editorial campaign, where we proudly feature outstanding women who are making a positive impact in our communities by uplifting others within the group. It's our pleasure to introduce Lorena Chan, an incredibly talented illustrator who is making waves in the children's book industry.
Chan's incredible talent was discovered by Laurence Thiel, the founder and director of Ô Fil de Lau, a brand that creates handmade soft toys and storybooks for children. Thiel was on the hunt for an illustrator for their first storybook and when he stumbled upon Chan's work, he was blown away by her creativity and dedication to her craft.
"Lorena made an amazing work, the result is far beyond my expectations! Thanks to her, we have now our first book available and can't wait to start the next one. Thanks WOHK for making this happen!" explains Thiel.
Even though Chan was a designer with no prior experience in illustrating books, her enthusiasm for the project and alignment with Ô Fil de Lau's values led to a successful collaboration with the brand. Thanks to Chan's hard work and talent, Ô Fil de Lau's first storybook is now available, and they are eager to start working on the next one. Not only that, but Chan has also demonstrated a deep commitment to promoting cultural awareness and creating job opportunities for mothers.
Discover the inspiring story of Lorena Chan, where talent and determination triumph over experience. Her journey highlights the power of cooperation and shared values, leading to positive and impactful changes.
