It was a sweltering summer day when Michael and Kayla Wong arrived at ifc's Rooftop Garden wearing the hottest fashions for the upcoming season – and we mean hot, because this season calls for cozy winter wear, from cashmere sweaters to woollen overcoats. But the father-daughter duo were unfazed by the temperatures, turning a day of photoshooting into a family bonding experience as they gallivanted around the shopping mall (don't worry, they enjoyed some air-conditioning, as well).

"We share a lot of our time together at home too," Michael shared. "I'm so happy that my family still lives under the same roof, this gives us quality time together. We also enjoy going out for meals and events, which is some of my favourite time spent with Kayla."

"I love it when I just get to have some one-on-one time with my dad, he always has such great insight on life," Kayla added.

That said, when it comes to fashion, Kayla looks more to her mother, Janet Ma, for inspiration. "My dad's style is casual but always put together –he loves his comfy sneakers and T-shirts.

"But a lot of my style inspiration comes from my mother. She was never really a trend follower, she went with her own vibe and whatever she felt like, she would wear. She was into baggy clothes and still is, very oversize jeans and that's a look I’ve adapted from her. She also likes these androgynous looks like suits, or something very put-together, like slicked-back hair with a dark lip. More edgy looks."

Michael, laughing, agrees that his daughter's style has far surpassed his own. "Kayla has great style, unique in her own way of expressing herself with fashion. I wear basically the same thing every day, a black sports shirt and jeans. I've always liked having a uniform. It puts me in my most comfortable state and makes me feel sharp, on point, ready to go.

"Kayla and Irisa are very stylish, and between the three of them, including my wife Janet, they are more enthusiastic about trends. My secret is, I try to put something on, and then I ask for their opinion, and if the opinion is not good, I say. 'Then can you help me organise a better look before I walk about the door?'"
