"strelitziasunsun" is from a combination of Strelitzia + Sun Sun
My Chinese name is 新 新 = SUN SUN
In Hong Kong, we have our English name as well.
Most people call me Sun Sun (Cantonese name) or Strelitzia (English name).
Strelitzia is the name of a distinctive flower called the ‘Bird of Paradise’.
I discovered this flower when I was 13 years old and living in Hong Kong.
Since then I decided to use this flower as my English name. This beautiful flower originates from Africa and stands out from all other flowers due to its vivid orange colour and unique bird-like shape.
This is my desire to create a fashion brand called Strelitziasunsun to represent this unique, trendy, Haute couture technique, hand crafted for the modern feminine woman.
