I left the corporate world in 2001 and began exploring the possibility of doing something on my own. Through my love of fashion I saw a need for exclusive garments at reasonable prices, combined with a more intimate and personalised shopping experience.


Dressed By Vanessa took off with a bang, with fashions being sourced from as far afield as China, Vietnam and Bangkok. A focus on quality has however resulted in focus on Hong Kong and an increased support for local designers.


My business relies largely on word of mouth and its success is proven by the number of loyal clients kept happy and glam! Through my years in the fashion world, my philosophy has remained steadfast: exclusivity, affordability, honesty and a pleasant, personalised shopping experience. As a result, I’ve never moved from a small, intimate studio and also offer a personal shopping service and very popular wardrobe consultations.

I love a new challenge and am always looking for the next exciting thing in the fashion world
