Name: Mia Kang
Hometown: Hong Kong
Studied in: Island School, Hong Kong for high school, Bristol University for my Bachelor’s Degree, and SOAS, London for my Master’s Degree.

How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style fluctuates daily but mostly I keep it monochrome and simple. That said, some days I feel sporty, some more feminine and flirty, some masculine, others adventurous – it really depends on my mood.

Who is your style icon?
I love Kim Kardashian's wardrobe and color palette and also think Gigi Hadid has great style. Beyonce really knows how to switch it up from street to red carpet.

If you could be one supermodel for the day, who would it be and why?
Candice Swanepoel because I would love to feel her confidence and have that body for a day!

What is your one go-to piece of lingerie?
I love the Maison Close set and I own it in multiple colors. I wear it under everything because it’s just so comfortable, and just happens looks great without clothing too. Eberjey loungewear is also unbeatable.

If there was one designer you could model for, who would it be?
Victoria's Secret or Balmain

Describe a day in your life.
Each day is different. I’d say a typical day for me would normally include a photo shoot, an hour of kickboxing with my trainer Elvis Lam at Pure Fitness, a few meetings, a fitting or rehearsal of some sort, a yoga or spin class, and maybe an event in the evening.

What does your closet look like and which are your favorite items in it?
My closet is mainly black, white and grey. My favorite items include my "airplane" coat by Erbert Chong - I can't live without it. I own about seven different pairs of Nike trainers so I have one to match every outfit, look good and still be able to run around town, even pop in and out of workout sessions. I also love Alice & Olivia dresses and Marie France Van Damme jumpsuits comfortable, effortless and elegant, suitable for day and night. For a day at the pool or beach, my Marysia bikini is my go-to.

What are the beauty products you can't live without?
I love the Clinique Moisture Surge spray. I make sure to keep my skin hydrated, even throughout the day.

What do you like to do with your downtime?
I don't have a lot of downtime given my busy, and at times, unpredictable schedule. I work out a lot, but it's also apart of my job. Most of my free time these days, I spend studying Cantonese. I also love catching up on TV shows and cuddling my cat. I love to travel every opportunity I get, even for quick getaways.

What was the most memorable shoot you did to date?
I've worked as a model for over a decade now and there have been a few that I will surely be telling my grandchildren about. What springs to mind was when I shot an advertisement for Chanel in Coco Chanel's apartment in Paris, my current Max Factor campaign shoot in New York City, and a recent shoot I did in Mexico for a worldwide sports brand which will debut later this year.
