Prac­tice Makes Per­fect

Used to own­ing the spot­light in the of­fice, busi­ness­woman Dee Poon was a real pro dur­ing our cover shoot

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

The last time Dee Poon par­tic­i­pated in a full-on photo shoot was al­most five years ago, when—with her mag­nate mother, Mar­jorie Yang—she graced the cover of our De­cem­ber 2013 is­sue, in which the duo talked about their fam­ily busi­ness, Esquel Group. But given the dy­namic poses she struck so ef­fort­lessly dur­ing this month’s photo shoot, she seemed as prac­tised as if that shoot were just the day be­fore.

The mod­ish manag­ing di­rec­tor and chief brand of­fi­cer of shirt re­tailer PYE brought con­sum­mate pro­fes­sion­al­ism and bound­less en­ergy to the 10-hour shoot. She was such an easy sub­ject that pho­tog­ra­pher Richard Ramos had sev­eral solid cover op­tions cap­tured by mid­day.

Dee looked ev­ery inch the muse in the out­fits our fash­ion di­rec­tor, Jus­tine Lee, chose for her, from five-inch stilet­tos to fig­ure-hug­ging leather en­sem­bles. She was high-spir­ited, strik­ing, charm­ing and con­fi­dent, not to men­tion in tip-top shape, though she said she only ex­er­cises when she trav­els—“so I can sleep through the night. I love do­ing the el­lip­ti­cal.”

Still pos­i­tively glow­ing at the end of the day, it’s safe to say it prob­a­bly won’t be an­other five years be­fore she’s in front of the cam­era again.
