B2B showroom to facilitate business exchange

Fashion Hong Kong is a series of international promotions organised by the HKTDC to raise the global profile of Hong Kong fashion designers and brands. Since 2015, Fashion Hong Kong has been staging world-class runway shows at major international fashion events, including New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, Copenhagen Fashion Week and Tokyo Fashion Week, showcasing the skills and creativity of Hong Kong's fashion designers in overseas markets.

To further promote the city's fashion brands and foster exchange and collaboration between Hong Kong designers and international buyers, the HKTDC will run the Fashion Hong Kong Showroom from 4 February to 5 March at FTL Moda, a major wholesale showroom located on New York's Seventh Avenue, also known as "Fashion Avenue."

In addition to the three designer brands showcased at the runway show, 10 other emerging Hong Kong fashion accessories and apparel brands will be featured in the Fashion Hong Kong showroom, including: ARTO., Charlotte Ng Studio, Invisibilis Movere, KKLUE, MIDNIGHT FACTORY, WHOSTHAT, made of pearl, Verdandi House, les amis, and Maria Conti.

- Harrison WongBrand: HARRISONWONG

Designer and brand profileHarrison Wong, designer and founder of HARRISON WONG LIMITED, made his fashion debut by winning both the Hong Kong Young Designer's Contest and the Grand Prix Contest in Japan. In 2014, Harrison Wong entered a new chapter by opening his first retail shop in Hong Kong. Now the label is expanding internationally and has been found in selected high-profile shops in different locations such as L'ECLAIREUR in Paris and Harvey Nichols in Hong Kong.

Fall/Winter 2020 Collection: Abstract CompositionHarrison Wong's namesake label is known for simple, structured lines yet dramatic look. For his FW2020 collection, Harrison Wong returns to his fascination with abstract visual art, inspired to create a new style through a creative combination of classic tailoring, denim and workwear. The influence of abstraction comes through in unexpected deconstruction, patchwork, and dynamic colour blocking. The use of matte and glossy fabrics serves to provide heightened contrast in this new collection.

- Lary Cheung and Yi ChanBrand: HEAVEN PLEASE+

Designers and brand profileLary Cheung and Yi Chan graduated from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. They founded the brand HEAVEN PLEASE+ in 2011 and launched their initial collection in 2012. The designer duo are devoted to applying their experiences beyond the fashion industry, including art, music and literature. The brand has had the opportunity to design several costumes for Hong Kong artists and large-scale events including the Ultimate Song Chart Awards Presentation. HEAVEN PLEASE+ opened its first retail location in Tsim Sha Tsui in 2013, which was subsequently chosen by the Hong Kong Louis Vuitton City Guide as one of the recommended fashion stores to visit in 2017.

Fall/Winter 2020 Collection: GIRL, YOU'LL BE A WOMAN SOONBy applying different design variations on each of their pieces, Lary Cheung and Yi Chan wish to bring individuality to simple clothing. Their FW2020 collection was purposefully chosen to present the idea of a modern woman. Inspired by the Princess of Wales and traditional British royal costumes, the brand transforms elegant details from traditional pieces into modern daily wear.

- Sun LamBrand: SUN=SEN

Designer and brand profileComing from a family with a garment-industry background, SUN=SUN's founder and creative director Sun Lam seeks to work with something unexpected and fun, with the intention of bringing these elements into the traditional clothing industry. In 2013, she won the Encouragement Prize in the 3rd International Ubiquitous Digital Fashion Design Contest organised by the Korean Society for Clothing Industry. She later went to the United Kingdom to earn a master's degree in Fashion Design. Her graduate collection was chosen as a finalist in the iD Dunedin International Emerging Designer Award 2016 and was selected to participate in a showcase at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. Ms Lam was later selected as one of the black sheep designers for the NotJustaLabel, and in 2017 was chosen as an Emerging Talent for the Paris TRANOI show.

Fall/Winter 2020 Collection: I SWEAR I'M A NICE GHOSTSUN=SEN always hopes to use garments to spread a sense of optimism to the world. Her FW2020 collection is inspired by an alien character called Nice Ghost, aiming to encourage people to express themselves and break through social stereotypes. The collection will combine space and girl fashion elements and continues with the brand's signature double sleeves and multi-wear silhouettes.
