When people ask me what I do, I say that I’m a creative person. I love to create no matter the outlet, that’s my nature.

She co-edited the inaugural V Magazine Asia Issue in 2011. On the design side, Victoria has served as Artistic Director of Issa London; Creative Director of lifestyle brand Tang Tang Tang Tang; and Creative Director of iconic luxury brand Shanghai Tang (where she initiated collaborations with prominent figures including with renowned Chinese artist Xu Bing).
