Anaïs Mak

Founder, Hong Kong-based label Anaïs Jourden

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Paris Fashion Week graduate Anaïs Mak is a fashion designer first and foremost. Founder of Anaïs Jourden, she mixes artisanal and industrial techniques to create collections that are utterly modern; a take on the notion of dressing up that is more about twisting the codes of the classic femininity than breaking them. Nominated as Forbes "30 Under 30", Anaïs Jourden was shortlisted as one of the LVMH Prize semi-finalists and winner of Vogue Italia Who Is On Next emerging designer award. Her work have been pictured with the likes of Ariana Grande, Lorde, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid & Bella Hadid.

Burning the midnight oil over ever-evolving ambitions, Anais's latest projects extends into uncharted territories in fashion and beyond, including a guest mixtape at NTS radio with Silk Road Sounds, short film productions and multimedia curations.
