In this monthly series, the editors of Lifestyle Asia dive deep into the closets of Hong Kong’s best-dressed individuals. From statement footwear to indispensable wardrobe basics, these Style Heroes share some of their favourite pieces with us and, in the process, give glimmers of insight into what defines their personal style. This month, we speak with Angie Ng.

It’s easy to (rather inappropriately) dismiss models as walking clothes hangers and nothing more, and it can’t be any further from the truth: Hong Kong-based Malaysian model Angie Ng makes a great example.

The 5’11” beauty was scouted by a talent agency in the UK when she was only 16. Following years of modelling on the side while she studied for (and obtained) her law degree, she ended up choosing the fashion world: Travelling the world, gracing the covers and pages of top magazine titles including Elle, Marie Claire and many more, showing that you can have brains, beauty and brawn: An achievement that results from her distinct character, positive attitude and fluid movement in front of cameras, thanks to her professional training in tap and modern dance and also ballet.

While the glamour of catwalks and cameras have their places in her heart, she’s also translated the vocabulary of style beyond fashion and into her day-to-day life. As a fitness fanatic (she’s a Schwinn-certified spinning instructor, previously moonlighting at XYZ and also currently teaches boxing at Lights Out), she’s blended her love of sport with fashion, previously working with Hong Kong athleisure label Rising Lotus for an eco-friendly sportswear collection.

Career achievements aside, she has also recently championed another milestone in life: Becoming a mother. While many see postpartum weight loss as a difficult hurdle, Ng spared no time in getting back into her fitness regime, determined to keep up with a lifestyle that is both healthy, stylish and full of enthusiasm.

It was about time we caught up with Ng for a spot of style inspiration, and in this edition of Style Heroes we’ve asked for a personal recommendation of 10 fashion pieces that are perfect for this Spring/Summer season. Click ahead for her styling demonstrations of these items, shot stylishly in her own home.
