9.30AM I usu­ally wake up around this hour, even if I do go to bed around 4 to 5am. It’s a very min­i­mum amount of sleep, but it needs to be done, es­pe­cially if we’re rush­ing to com­plete a new col­lec­tion, like now. I get around 20 e-mails a day, deal­ing with sup­pli­ers and the de­sign team, which is why that is one of the first things I at­tend to ev­ery morn­ing. 11AM I have my first meal of the day. I’m a fan of our lo­cal cui­sine, so I head to the hawker cen­tre from around the cor­ner of my apart­ment al­most ev­ery day. They do the best fish­ball noodle soup there, and I can’t get enough of it. Hav­ing a big and hearty break­fast for me is im­por­tant as I will need lots of en­ergy to get me through the day. But if I'm in Mi­lan, break­fast gets a lit­tle bit more so­cial as the team and I share an en­tire apart­ment to­gether. I’m not a big cof­fee or tea per­son, but a glass of juice is a must for me.
