There’s Something About Hong Kong Fashion Week
Hong Kong Fashion Week just wrapped, and it was just as delicious and Instagram-worthy as the sea of egg tarts and pineapple buns (tip: you must add butter) that I breathlessly devoured throughout the week.
The 50th edition of Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2019, which is organized by Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), took place at a jaw-dropping beauty: the majestic (and massive) Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, which is located in Wan Chai and sits stunningly along the Victoria Harbour. There’s A LOT that goes down at Hong Kong Fashion Week—shows, seminars, a ginormous trade fair (with 1,400 exhibitors from around the globe this year!)—so there’s no shortage of activities in which to partake.
For Milk, it’s all about checking out the exciting up-and-comers. And HKFW had just the thing: FASHIONALLY, a presentation for emerging, local talent to showcase their latest collections. They were all great, but our favorites took the wild, rule-breaking, dizzying, in-your-face, eclectic, straight-up bananas, (you get the picture) route. Introducing three kick ass new labels: YEUNG CHIN, phenotypsetter and ALEE LEE. The cuckoo collections from these unconventional designers, who all studied at the Alternatif Fashion Workshop in Hong Kong, majorly caught my attention, which resulted in running backstage to snap some photos via disposable camera. You’re welcome. Oh, and spoiler alert: the midriff is here to stay. Here for it.
Stay tuned to Milk for more global fashion.
