Songwriter sings Moss' praises

Songwriter Wyman Wong Wai-man says British model Kate Moss is the most beautiful thing to have happened to the fashion industry during the past decade.

'Whenever a designer wants to make a dummy [figure] to fit their clothes, they go for Kate's figure,' he said. 'It's their standard.

'I think 100 years from now, when people are doing a time- line of what happened in the fashion world, Kate Moss will come to represent the past 10 years,' said Wong (below) at the launch of a design project called JAM tee, for which he made a T-shirt with the words 'Male Kate Moss' printed.

Wong is a graduate of social studies at the Chinese University. He then worked as a radio presenter, actor and columnist, but is perhaps best known for writing Canto-pop lyrics that have won him many local music awards.

Wong also has strong views about fashion. Although T-shirts are easy to make, he said there are seldom any good ones.

He particularly likes shirts with slogans. 'It's nice to wear a T-shirt that makes others happy and a slogan T-shirt can easily achieve that,' he said.

Wong believes in keeping things simple. 'The more conscious you are about mixing and matching, the more likely you'll go wrong.'
