Founder of Limelight
“Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it” – Salvador Dali
Passionate about costume and creativity, Virginia set up Limelight in 2006, where she gathered a group of like-minded talents to provide a complete range of quality costume services to Broadway organisations and the global entertainment industry.
As someone who never settles for the ordinary, she started her career as a Costumier for various US Broadway productions and later participated in different shows and productions in the US after graduating from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. With broadened horizons, Virginia never forgot her roots and was determined to use her costuming skill and knowledge to contribute to the local art scene.
When she returned to Hong Kong, she took up the position of Costume Director at Hong Kong Ballet, where she designed and constructed costumes for renowned productions including The Sleeping Beauty, The White Snake, The Nutcracker, The Lady of the Camellias and Giselle, etc. She was also awarded Hong Kong’s Best Costume for her work in Legend of the Great Archer.
After gaining diverse theatre knowledge and experience, Virginia decided to take on new challenges to work in the theme park industry. She joined the Creative Costuming Opening Team at Hong Kong Disneyland (HKDL) to oversee the park’s costuming development and operation prior to the establishment of Limelight. Working with HKDL was an eye-opening experience, where she had the privilege to meet, work with and learn from some of the most inspirational people.
Her aspiration for unique and meaningful costumes, coupled with local influence and extensive costuming insights and experience, inspired her to bring Hong Kong costumes to the world stage. Fueled by her passion and commitment, Virginia modestly claimed that being in the right place at the right time with the right people led to the birth and growth of Limelight.
As Limelight turned 10 years old in 2016, Virginia says, “We have accomplished a lot together during our first 10 years. We have been providing high quality costuming services to international entertainment companies and have successfully introduced costume as indispensible art in theatrical and entertainment productions. We see a bright future ahead of us as we look forward to new adventures.”
