Around 1,500 exhibitors from 19 countries will partake in the 47th Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall/Winter which runs from January 18-21, 2016 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

“Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the event will showcase the latest fashion designs, collections from international brands, fabrics and accessories,” a HKTDC press release said.

With this year's theme being 'Fashion of Music', HKTDC has created a fashion avenue for the fair, which blends different musical genres in ways that complement various styles of fashion and accessories.

Additionally, around 30 fashion events, including fashion shows, fashion parades, seminars, forums, and a networking reception are organised to present the latest fashion collections and market intelligence.

This year, companies from Myanmar, Romania, and Uzbekistan join the Hong Kong Fashion Week for the first time and the fair also features 11 overseas pavilions, including from China, India, Indonesia, and Japan.

According to HKDTC, multiple zones will be set up to help buyers find sought-after products and providers, including four new zones; Women's Wear, Knitwear, International Fashion Designers' Showcase, and Fashion Tech.

“Other zones include Emporium De Mode featuring top brands, Fashion Gallery showcasing mid- to high-end fashion, Men in Style, Activewear & Swim Wear, and Denim Arcade,” it added.

During fair, more than 10 fashion, designer and brand collection shows will be organised, while fashion website Fashionally will present two fashion shows for upcoming local talents.

Fashionally Collection #5 Menswear will display menswear for the 2016 F/W season from designers like Derek Chan, Kenax Leung, Kurt Ho and Modement.

Fashionally Collection #6 will also release a collection of women's wear for the 2016 F/W season from designers including Mountain Yam, Walter Kong and Jessica Lau, Effie Hung, Shirley Wong, etc.

The Hong Kong Fashion Week also features Hong Kong Brand Management Association, presenting the American diva Taylor Swift's own brand.

Kate Liegey, who is responsible for tailoring Swift's clothing, will bring the latest Taylor Swift collection on show together with the singer's single Wildest Dreams from her latest album.

Also, Fortuna Tokyo from Japan, known for using the traditional textile nishijin-ori in their designs, will showcase their high-quality fashion products.

The EcoChic Design 2015/16 Grand Final Fashion Show by Redress will be another highlight of the fair. (AR)
