Six Young Hong Kong Fashion Labels in Focus
Creations from six Hong Kong fashion designer labels will be showcased at the "FASHIONALLY Collection #13" fashion parade and three sessions of the "FASHIONALLY Presentation" at HKTDC Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2019. In addition, two other up-and-coming Hong Kong brands - ARTO. and YMDH - will take part in FASHIONALLY promotions for the first time, showcasing their 2019 Fall/Winter collections. Fashion Week is organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and runs from 14-17 Jan at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).
The three designers displaying their latest collections at FASHIONALLY Collection #13 are: Yeung Chin (brand name: YEUNG CHIN), who runs a concept store at PMQ; Jane Ng (brand name: Phenotypsetter); and Alee Lee (brand name: ALEE LEE), who is launching her brand's second collection. All three are ex-YDC (Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers' Contest) finalists who studied at the Alternatif Fashion Workshop. They are coming together to showcase their Fall/Winter 2019 collections in a show that exudes a freewheeling, eclectic vibe against a backdrop of live music.
At the Fashion Week fairground, FASHIONALLY Presentations will showcase the design concepts and 2019 Fall/Winter collections of local fashion designers Arto Wong (brand name: ARTO.), Jason Lee (brand name: YMDH) and Carrie Kwok (brand name: CAR|2IE) in the form of a story told against the backdrop of a theatre-like stage.
Knitwear designer Arto Wong received the New Talent Award and was named Overall Winner at YDC 2017. The New Talent Award gave Ms Wong the opportunity to retail her debut collection at Joyce, a famous multi-brand fashion store in Hong Kong. High-end streetwear designer Jason Lee won the "Best Footwear Design Award" at YDC 2017, after which he launched a capsule collection with renowned Hong Kong retailer i.t. Taking inspiration from literature, Carrie Kwok creates sophisticated, poetic designs that have been well-received by consumers. Her label, CAR|2IE, is available at Lane Crawford.
Hong Kong artist Yam Chan, who worked as a fashion designer previously, will collaborate with FASHIONALLY for the first time to showcase MICH, his handmade ball-jointed doll, at Fashion Week on 16-17 Jan.
