For the launch of Sean Lee-Davies and Awethentic Studio’s new Virtual Safari experience, niin joined the Awethentic team for a pop up in the Awethentic Gallery in Central to help raise funds for The Nature Conservancy.
While many of us may not have the opportunity to go on safari, this exciting new VR experience enabled guests to visit the African savanna and get up close with some of Africa’s most iconic and endangered species.
Surrounded by Sean’s breathtaking Love is Wild photography, niin had a selection of our favourite collections on display.
If you haven’t stopped by the Awethentic Gallery, make sure you do – it’s worth the visit. Book in your VR experience today – email firstname.lastname@example.org
niin were excited to pop up at Art Central last month for a special collaboration with artist/filmmaker and activist Sean Lee-Davies. The Conscious Creativity for a Sustainable Future event saw Jeanine and Sean discuss their creative journey, ethical-mindset and open the XXXX about how you can be a part of creating a more sustainable future.
Held in the Art Central CLUB CENTRAL VIP room, the evening included a special viewing of niin's latest eco-chic jewellery designs on inspired plantscapes by The Stalk Room. These collections featured the use of niin’s trademark abalone shells sourced from Hong Kong seafood restaurants and up-cycled wooden furniture factory off-cuts.
Guests also had the opportunity to watch a live Virtual Reality art demonstration by international artists Mauro Bergonzoli and Szabotage, or experience a Virtual Safari by Sean Lee-Davies, along with a special showcase of some of Sean’s LOVE IS WILD photographs.

This May, 36 women across 8 categories, from Eco-Warriors to Charity Workers, Entrepreneurs to Equality Champions will be celebrated for the work in their relevant fields in the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation and Hong Kong Tatler annual Women of Hope Awards.
The Women of Hope (WOH) Awards was established in 2014 by Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation (HKAHF) to recognise influential women in Hong Kong who champion the call for justice to benefit women, children, and the greater community.
As a team of all women, we at niin find it both exciting and inspiring to see more and more women doing extraordinary things for the greater community. Everyday women are challenging the status quo, pushing the boundaries, and carving a fresh, new path for future generations.
We are so proud of niin Founder & Creative Director, Jeanine Hsu being nominated for the 2017 Women of Hope Awards in the Eco-Warrior category. Her nomination reflects the acknowledgement of the importance of ethical and sustainable design and how we can all make more sustainable choices to better the environment and community every day.

HKAHF created WOH as a unique campaign to raise awareness of the foundation’s Cancer Fund and its efforts to support underprivileged cancer patients in Hong Kong.
In addition to honouring inspirational women, the WOH Awards luncheon also raises awareness of the foundation’s Cancer Fund and its efforts to support underprivileged cancer patients in Hong Kong. The event features testimonials from cancer survivors, while all the funds raised are directed to the Cancer Fund to provide free scans, as well as diagnosis and treatment services to those in need.

This month we launched our latest collection, Eska at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery.
The Eska Collection creatively reimagines and pays respect to the element of water. Encouraging hope and positivity, the design of this collection channels the cleansing and purifying qualities of nature's glaciers, oceans, rivers and rains.
In line with niin's sustainable ethos, niin have taken their mission for greener design one step further with the use of recycled silver together with up-cycled abalone shells sourced from Hong Kong restaurants.
The Eska Collection appeared on bespoke displays by Paper Scenographer Agnes Tai, hand-crafted using paper offcuts. While a private screening of Adventures to the Edge 2 also took place, where filmmaker/conservationist Sean Lee Davies travels to the remote Solomon Islands to see the effects of man made climate change on marine life and what's been done to save the critically endangered hawksbill turtle.
We thank our generous and gracious sponsors at Peroni, BottlesXO, and dragon-i for their amazing support. Of course a special thanks goes to our friends at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery / Katie de Tilly Contemporary Artists for allowing us to share their space during the exquisite photography exhibition of RongRong & inri : Tsumari Story.
A special congratulations to our Lucky Draw winner, Candy - who has won a $5000 niin voucher. We look forward to helping her pick out some lovely pieces over the coming weeks.
Thanks very much to everyone for joining us and making this launch event a success xo

Last month, niin launched our first ever line of fine jewellery with the Gaia Fine Collection.
An exciting new evolution in niin’s pursuit to raise awareness for environmental concerns and ethical jewellery design, the Gaia Fine Collection is about solidarity with our earth.
These designs celebrate the beauty of nature with jewellery hand-crafted to showcase environmental elements and endangered species in need or our protection.
Organic, intricate and elegant, each piece from the Gaia Fine Collection has been created using conflict-free precious stones and 18 carat gold. Each unique design is a reminder of what our incredible planet and her creatures face, inspiring us to protect and preserve what was here long before us.
The collection features 6 core themes (Cirrus - Climate Change, Banyan – Rainforests, Coralline - Coral Reefs, Mare - Oceans, Khan - Tigers, Scalene - Shark Finning), which have been interpreted into 12 limited edition pieces including earrings, rings, pendant necklaces, and bracelets.
“Each design reflects an environmental issue that I feel very strongly about,” said niin Founder and Designer, Jeanine Hsu, “I have loved the opportunity to work with these conflict-free stones to create designs that truly mean something to me, and hopefully to the niin family,”
With prices ranging from HKD $9750, the limited edition pieces are an amazing investment to any jewellery enthusiast. The Gaia Fine Collection comes packaged in beautiful hand-finished display boxes made from sustainably-sourced wood from Australia.
A massive thanks to our friends, The KEE Club and Caudalie, for helping us make the event possible, and a special thanks to Maurice at The Stalk Room for his absolutely amazing displays.
