Rhys 睿程 (Ophelia Keung and Kadri Keung 姜葛蘭琴及姜美而)
Founder and Creative Director 創辦人及設計總監 @Rhys, Hong Kong 睿程,香港
Ophelia Keung (Mrs Keung) is CEO and Founder of Rhys. Mrs Keung has over 30years of experience working in the garment industry. After retirement, Mrs Keung became the primary caretaker of her mother who was housed at an elderly home.

Kadri Keung is Creative Director of Rhys and graduated from the Institute of Textiles and Clothing at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University with a focus on Knitwear Design and Technology. Her background has led her to realise the superficiality of mainstream fashion and its failure to form connections with its users. 姜葛蘭琴(姜太)是睿程有限公司創辦人。從事30多年高級時裝製作的姜太,退休後照顧居住護老院的媽媽。這段經歴令姜太於2017年創立睿程有限公司,致力為老人以及身障人士製作美觀的適應性服飾。 姜美而是睿程有限公司設計總監。畢業於理工大學紡織及服裝學系針織時裝設計及科技專業,卻深感主流消費主義時裝欠缺與使用者之間的連結,時裝的意義只流於表面。
