From a Tourist to a Handbag Designer
Wey King, the Designer of Weyking
Follow My Dream
Once upon a time I was a tourism practitioner in China. Today I’m the founder of a handbag fashion line that grows in popularity every day. The journey from there to here was an interesting one. My name is Wey King, and it’s my pleasure to introduce myself and Weyking to you.
Find My Gap
When I first came to ShangHai with the aim of launching a line of handbags, I had no design experience. What I did have was a passion for fashion, a great deal of research into the industry, and the identification of a key gap –Asian -influenced fashion was lacking from the Shanghai fashion scene.
Weyking Was Born
Shanghai welcomed me and my designs, giving me a new home that I’m proud to call my own. I named the company after my name I lived on when I arrived in city and started my new journey as a fashion designer. To me, Weyking means good luck, happiness, and growth. I infuse each bag with these sentiments – some even have Asian symbols for luck and happiness hand-painted onto the leather because I want you to share in the happiness I’ve found too.
On The Journey
Today, I am no longer engaged in tourism. I’m in the fashion scene in Shanghai with a handsome husband and a young boys. My dreams have come true, and I look forward to being a part of yours; because I know that carrying the handbag instills you with a sense of pride and confidence. When you feel that way, you go out and conquer the world.
