My Beijing Trip in August

Just returned from an incredible trip to Beijing. I spent 4 days in this amazing city. There are so many exciting projects I’m working on in China and I can’t wait to share them with you all!

The Chinese market has always been so important to me. It is the fourth-largest economy in the world and many countries are vying for a share of this market. I’m happy to see the UK strengthening it’s partnerships with China through exciting initiatives like China Business Day held in London two weeks ago and the GREAT Britain Campaign.

The main purpose of this trip was to meet my client – Beijing Topwin Real Estate Development Co. – an influential property developer in China whose business portfolio include hotels, residential and commercial properties. I’m very excited to be working with them, I’m designing a number of apartments and penthouses for one of their residential buildings.

During the various meeting and presentations with the client, the ideas just kept flowing so much, so that we are now talking about other projects including designing a KH style hotel – so exciting!

It was boiling in Beijing, I couldn’t believe how hot it was! As usual everyone was incredibly friendly, I felt so welcome and the client organised everything perfectly, they really made me feel like a queen!

I love Beijing and feel so inspired by this great city I can’t wait to come back.

You wont believe what happened during the flight though, on the return leg of journey, I was peacefully asleep in British Airways first class, my favourite… when suddenly an announcement came on telling everyone to put the oxygen masks and the life jackets! You can imagine how I felt, waking up to this was a surprise, to say the least, and I just kept thinking about the instructions and how to put the mask on… but to my relief, a lovely BA crew member then came up to me and said it was a false alarm, phew! I still love BA though and their amazing crew, thanks for looking after me!

I’m glad to be back home in London for a couple of days before jetting off on holiday to soak up the final Olympic atmosphere.


Kelly’s trip to China!

Kelly is buzzing from her trip to China! Kelly was a special guest at a reception at the British Embassy, visited the factory where they produce her collection for Halo Furniture and she took part in Guangzhou Design Week giving a key note speech to people passionate about design and interiors.

After the speech, Kelly signed copies of newest book Ideas with her Chinese fans.

Kelly’s in China!

Kelly is thrilled to be back in mainland China to take part in the Guangzhou Design Week!

On Monday Kelly started her trip in Asia by attending a special event at the British consulate in Hong Kong as she will be an ambassador for Britain in Asia next year. Though it was her mentor and dear friend Vidal Sassoon who started the ‘Kelly for Prime Minister’ campaign in his CNBC Meets Interview it seems that Kelly herself is making great strides at showcasing her uniquely British design sense to China.

Today she’s been working hard with her partners Halo Asia signing off on the pieces for her latest furniture collection. She’s even visited the factories where they make the items!

On Saturday she’ll be taking part in one of China’s most important design festivals to showcase her furniture range. The collection has been a great success here in the UK and Kelly is excited to showcase the line to Chinese design professionals. She’ll also be signing copies of her new book Ideas…just in time for (Chinese) New Year!

Kelly will be taking exclusive pictures for us so be sure to take a look at her Facebook page on Monday!

If you are in China be sure to see Kelly at the Guangzhou Design Week on Saturday! Check her profiles on Weibo, Kaixin, Renren , Renren Xiaozhan and Douban for more information.



这周一Kelly参加了英国驻华大使馆的一个活动,你知道吗明年Kelly将要代表英国成为英国在整个亚洲的形象大使啦!尽管是Kelly的良师兼益友Vidal Sassoon在前不久Kelly参加的美国CNBC访谈节目先开启的 “凯丽为首相(Kelly for Prime Minister)”的宣传活动,但Kelly本人也正在努力为此事取得大步进展,希望可以让更多的中国朋友们感受到她的独家设计理念。

今天Kelly正致力于展出她与中国厂商Halo Asia合作生产的最新系列家具。当时Kelly本人还亲自参观了制造这些家具的工厂哦!





Hello China!

After nearly a month’s work, my Chinese “Facebook” and “Twitter” are finally ready!

I am so happy that I can now connect directly with my Chinese fans… and you can connect with me now too!

I adore visiting visiting China and had a wonderful welcome on my last trip to Hongkong and Shenzhen! As you know, I am a proud partner of two Chinese companies. Halo designed my furniture range and Alexandre is the wonderful retailer that sells my products in mainland China.

Aside from the business I also have friends on my Facebook page from Taiwan. It seemed like a perfect time to connect my Chinese fans on their own sites in Mandarin.

I do have some help from Li Chen and Qiaoshen Wu with the translations and helping me stay connected on all my special Chinese profiles…But it is really me sharing my thoughts, inspirations and projects!

I have pages on Kaixin, Douban and Weibo. I even have an account in Tianya community, where I share fantastic images regularly. I’m still waiting on Renren page but it is coming very soon.

I’m so thrilled to be able to make new friends and share my passions with the Chinese people. I hope you will join me on my Chinese profiles.
