FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: 2019, the Year of the Pig- Chinese New Year Fresh Orchid Headpiece

Happy New Year! Happy 2020!

In Chinese zodiac tradition, 2019 was the Year of the Pig, which was coincidentally MY zodiac year (which is supposed to be very auspicious for me- not that I’m superstitious like that, but it is fun to celebrate!) and I had also recently returned from my big “Chinese Diaspora” trip and self-discovery into my cultural identity and what it means to be a 藍 (i.e. my family name).

I thus had a lot of fun doing a specific Chinese New Year (CNY) headpiece in February 2019, which I share with you now as a farewell to the year that’s been.

2019 was also a huge year for me for many other reasons. And so I will supplement my usual photoshoot discussions with another letter to my late sister, reflecting on the year. Thank you for your patience everyone xx
