No party is too big if you've been organising Lan Kwai Fong's carnivals, beer fests and Halloween showdowns. So even though today's Christmas fair is Marisa Zeman's first retail venture, she's sure to pull it off like a pro.

Zeman (pictured) - whose father Allan is the founder of Lan Kwai Fong Entertainments - is hosting a shopping bazaar today from noon until 8pm at The Space on Hollywood Road. The fair will feature local boutique brands such as Kiribati swimwear and accessories by niin, Mischa and Halo.

'I want it to be not just a fair to get all your Christmas shopping done, but to also have a nice afternoon,' Zeman said. 'We'll have wine, eggnog and gingerbread men at a lounge area in The Space.'

Zeman's own resort wear Nude is Rude, which was launched in September, will also be available. The brand is her first foray into the fashion world outside the family business.

'That's why I'm cautious about who I'm associating with. I figured, why not do my own mini-fair with all the other designer friends? It will be the first of a few to come.'
