"She was born on the Isle of Wight  then sent, aged eight months, to live in Hong Kong with her grandparents so her parents were free to run the family restaurant. At 13, Choi returned. Four miserable years later she'd learned English and determined, thanks to a 'so cool' John Galliano coat she saw in Just 17 magazine, to go to fashion school. Yet she only stayed for a year-long foundation course because she was already helping her uncle Jimmy."
