about the Haute Pursuit

A part of the original wave of digital fashion it-girls, Vanessa Hong is the creator of the renowned platform, The Haute Pursuit, which gained early accolades for its unique styling aesthetics and distinct minimal language. Vanessa has subsequently parlayed her success into modeling, styling and more recently, womenswear design. Her likeness has graced the international sites and pages of countless top tier publications, as well as global campaigns with prestigious fashion and jewelry brands. In 2015, Vanessa launched her debut RTW collection of luxurious faux fur coats and stoles, which has since been seen worn by fashion insiders and celebrities like Lady Gaga. Her aim is to create stronger sustainability practices within the industry.
