Bearcat's Story

Dear Bearcat started in 2009 in a small room in the city of Hong Kong. I had just ended a contract with a big multinational broadcast network and was deciding what my next step should be. After months of trial and error, I finally mustered up the courage to open the store and sell my first collection of simple friendship and charm bracelets. I have always been a massive shoe lover so I began experimenting with more complex anklet chains, eventually coming up with the Rogue shoe chains, which 4 years later is still the most popular piece in the store. As the years pass, my interests and styles have changed but one thing remains the same - my passion for carefully creating handmade pieces for those who appreciate simple and striking indie designs. I have no intention of ever mass producing my work and strive to give every single one of my customers the best quality pieces and service I can give them. Bearcat Designs will always be my own little treasure box filled with my works of art, amongst the many other facets of my life as a drama educator, director and performer. It is what gave me the self-confidence needed to continue my journey in the arts and helped bring about Bearcat Productions, a theatre company that aims to create community based art with and for the people of Hong Kong. In a small way I hope it spreads the love of fashion, culture, art and creativity that has been the driving force in all the things I pursue in my life.
