Spend a Day with Vanessa Hong at Paris Fashion Week

When you think of OG fashion blogs, Vanessa Hong’s The Haute Pursuit might come to mind. A decade ago, she set out to create a digital space to share creative inspiration and daily outfits. The Vancouver-raised, Paris-based creative now shares her unique looks on Instagram, be it street style fodder or daring hair and makeup. And, much like her ever-evolving style, she’s pushing herself to grow her career, too. “I’ve had so many incarnations in my life,” she explains. “Right now, I’m going through a phase where I’m redefining what I do.” For now, this includes fashion consulting and working on the second season of her podcast, Vanessa Wants to Know.  

In the interim, Hong can be found in Paris serving looks and enjoying the last week of fashion month. “I think my favorite part about it is the community,” Hong says. “If you're able to find your tribe in fashion, there really is nothing comparable to that...I love fashion because it’s never the same. There's always new people trying to innovate.” We caught up on all things fashion month while she got ready, using the new Rose Inc eye collection, for a day of Paris Fashion Week shows. Below, Hong goes into detail about her fashion week wellness rituals, where she finds beauty inspiration and the shows she’s most looking forward to during Paris Fashion Week.

“I love fashion because It’s never the same. There's always new people trying to innovate.”

“Something I’m learning is that being fully balanced all the time is not necessarily possible, but it’s not something we need to be hard on ourselves about.”

“I’m also noticing designers are focusing less on women’s wear or men’s wear. Anyone can wear anything.”

By Lena Herrmann

“...in terms of makeup, I'm seeing a whole spectrum…But there’s always dewy, glowy skin.”
