Meet our Midsummer Dreams collection muse - the beautiful Krissi Cristina! Get to know the Cali-born, HK-based multitalented model and influencer below...
1/ Tell us a bit about yourself!
I'm half American, half Thai. I was born and raised in Southern California. I love the sun and the sea!
2/ But now you are based in HK – how did that happen?
I originally flew to Hong Kong 5 years ago for a 3 month modelling contract. I ended up falling in love with the city, and have been based here ever since!

3/ How did you get your start in modelling?
When I was 15 years old my family and I moved to Bangkok, Thailand. I was scouted at a local shopping mall and booked my first casting for a skin care commercial.
4/ Best/favourite parts about your job? And the least favourite?
My most favourite part about my job is getting to meet lots of different people with different backgrounds like me. It’s wonderful to hear about other people’s experiences and how they got to where they are now!
My least favourite part would have to be the crazy unpredictable shooting schedules. Sometimes you’ve made plans to do something, but when you get booked for a job last minute, you have to change around your whole schedule. I do love what I do though, so I can’t complain!

5/ What tips would you give to new models?
Every client and brand is looking for something different, so don’t ever feel the pressure or need to change yourself to look like someone else! Modelling is all about being original and special (and sometimes it’s all about luck - if you happen to fit what a certain brand is looking for).
6/ When you are not busy modelling, what are your favourite past times?
Binge watching Netflix series, catching up on sleep, drinking a nice red wine.
7/ How do you keep your figure in shape?
I try to make it to the gym at least once a week, and if I’m not weight training, I’ll run at the track near my home in the morning.

8/ Top 5 favourite places and/or things about HK? (Can be a restaurant, a district, an activity etc)
-The diversity of everyone and everything
- The food!!! (Both the local dishes and foreign ones, and how it’s so easy to find pretty much anything I’m craving)
- The convenience of the public transportation here
- The fashion
- How close everything is… if I want a city vibe or I feel like a beach vacation, just a quick MTR train trip or bus ride will get me there!

9/ You recently got married, congrats!! How did you and your partner meet?
We actually met through a mutual friend at a local bar when we were out one night! On our very first date I was an hour and a half late. It was a horrible first impression for a first date, but he ended up being really cool about it and we laughed it off and made some jokes! He’s always been great at making me laugh and he thinks I’m funny too. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to spend the rest of my life with a smile on my face!
10/ What is something that people may not know about you?
I’m an introvert!! And I get extreme social anxiety when I’m in a crowded place or meet anyone new! But I do enjoy good company and am a great listener.

11/ What is your favourite BC outfit?
Wow that’s a tough one... I’d have to say the Summer Rain Maxi Dress! I love how slimming it is as it’s long and flowy, and I love how you can wrap the straps around your upper body any way you want to create different looks!
