關於Calvin:

多倫多長大,入大學後唔知好彩定唔好彩,認識左杜如風,好彩既係,打落四年有個傻既日日一齊吃喝玩樂,唔好彩既係四年內基本上無乜點番過學每日圍繞住玩同去下旅行咁慶幸既係最後都成功大學畢業,主修Computer Science。畢業之後,入職某大地產商做電腦程式員, 由於每日既工極度沉悶,我投放大量時間落蘭桂坊,逢四五六都喜愛夜蒲,因此得到蘭桂坊之子(LKF Gigi)的美譽無論係年青港女、竹昇、日本妹、韓國妹,鬼妹model我都見過晒,不過大部份都無我份七年後某天亦決定辭職和減少落中環,決定以後唔再做沉悶既工作。

之後入左間新成立既Event Management公司由於公司規模細小,基本上之後的十八個月有如入左少林寺,乜都要學新公司奧妙之處,就係你夠膽做,佢夠膽放晒手咩都俾你做,而我就喺嗰年半內累積到少少PR & Marketing既經驗。十八個月後公司執笠,我同同事自立門戶,繼續做Design, PR & Marketing工作,做左幾年都算有小許成績,但心入面開始有個諗法,與其經常幫客人建立品牌,倒不如試下建立一個屬於自己既品牌? 咁啱嗰時興起一個新服務行業,就係租Pocket Wifi俾外出旅遊既客人,就決定同朋友一齊開Pocket Wifi Rental公司,而我公司Wiyo成立冇耐就略有名氣,生意都做到唔錯。

做左Wiyo之後,加深我對旅遊行業認識,有一次喺朋友聚會同杜如風吹起,有冇一D同旅遊有關,又好玩既產品可以搞搞呢? 基於杜如風小姐代表旅遊,又熱愛時裝,倒不如將旅遊同時裝撈埋一齊做啦!最後我地決定從t-shirt入手,主要原因有二個:第一t-shirt比high fashion更平易近人,更為大眾化;第二就係好玩!一件t-shirt有如一張畫紙,一個簡單既平面上,可以有天馬行空既圖案或訊息,客人著上身可以表達到佢地既個性同態度,呢種直接既表達方式同無限創作空間就係我地覺得好玩之處。過去六個月,我同杜如風用左好多心機同時間去構思同創造FUNGOLIA,一絲不苟,希望大家喜歡我地既產品多多支持啦!

This is the beginning of our new adventure, join us and let's make fun together!
