#UNLOCKINGHERWARDROBE: ELIZABETH LEE YONG

For the 2017 edition of our #Unlocking operation, we have decided to open up one of the most powerful, boss woman style, wardrobes we know. 

And that could only mean teaming up with Elizabeth Lee Yong, founder of the jewellery brand Bowerhaus and concept store The Playground Borneo which she cofounded with her sister.

Step inside her ambitious mind & bold fashion sense of style.
