Fashion Hong Kong is a series of international promotional events organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) to promote Hong Kong fashion designers and labels in the global fashion arena.
Debuted in January 2015, Fashion Hong Kong will once again introduce four impressive fashion designers at Copenhagen Fashion Week (AW17) and Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF). The use of eco-friendly fabrics will be demonstrated on the runway. More fashion accessories brands together with the runway showpieces will be showcased at Fashion Hong Kong Gallery at CIFF.
As the only Asian show at Copenhagen Fashion Week, Fashion Hong Kong Show will be held in the Thorvaldsens Museum at 6pm on 31 January, the first day of the Copenhagen Fashion Week. It will present the designers’ pieces on the runway in a historical venue surrounded by world-class art and sculptures uniquely found in Copenhagen.
Among the four Hong Kong fashion designers, Kenax Leung will return to the runway with his new collection “waste isn’t just waste” which represents the contrast between a jolt of energy as well as a sense of familiarity and comfort. Kay Li, with her “The Great Expectation” collection, describes the feeling of helplessness to the explosion of anger, eagerness to happiness experienced by a bride of an arranged marriage. Vickie Au of HOUSE OF V will showcase the geometry and architecture inspired collection “Sensuous Illusion” which heralds a new type of re-sculpted simplicity, where smart mixing of materials and colour becomes a unique part of the minimalist looks. Dora Chu’s latest party dress collection “Eternal Empress” introduces the royal history intrigue by merging bold, romantic and textural elements, which is the core of her brand Maison Vermillion.
