September is the most important month in the fashion industry, during which a vast number of important happenings take place across the globe, whether it’s Fashion Week in New York and Paris, or new seasonal offerings hitting your favourite stores. Here in Hong Kong, we have our own fashion events, too, as the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) once again presents our very own fashion trade show, CENTRESTAGE, which will continue its mission to turn the wheels of Asia’s fashion industry.
Running from 6–9 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), the annual fashion extravaganza brings together over 210 sought-after brands, along with designers, buyers and fashion enthusiasts of the region. These brands — which include local brands and designer labels such as anagram, Angus Tsui, i.t, Loom Loop, as well as international labels such Taiwan’s Cheng Pai Cheng and Japan’s DressedUndressed — will be separated into three thematic zones: Glam, Allure and Metro, and each will reveal their own take on the upcoming season’s must-have pieces.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to take part in an array of 40 exciting events including runway shows, designer sharing sessions, industry seminars and networking events. The main events you won’t want to miss are the Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers’ Contest 2017, Fashion Hong Kong Runway Show, Trend Talks, Fashion Summit and the EcoChic Design Award (you can find the full lineup of events here).
To kickstart the four-day programme, a glamorous opening gala show, CENTRESTAGE ELITES, will be held on 6 September. Celebrated designers Fiona Lau and Kain Picken of FFIXXED STUDIOS from Hong Kong, and South Korea’s design supremo Juun. J. will present their latest creations at a runway show featuring top models from the region. Having presented their men’s and women’s collections at Fashion Weeks worldwide, creative couple Fiona and Kain are returning home to launch their Spring/Summer 2018 collection, offering us a window into their creative vision of modern simplicity and effortlessness comfort.
Juun. J will also debut his Spring/Summer 2018 creations on the CENTRESTAGE ELITES runway, displaying his love of avant-garde aesthetics. His work is largely inspired by a unique mix of street culture and precise tailoring, and has already attracted a line-up of loyal supporters including K-pop megastars G-Dragon and Taeyang, which means this will be a show that’s guaranteed to impress.
