The 47th Hong Kong Fashion Week kicked off from January 18 featuring more than 1,500 exhibitors from 22 countries and regions showing latest fashion designs and collections of fabrics and accessories.

“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,” a press release informed.

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

This year, companies from Myanmar, Romania, Uzbekistan, New Zealand, Philippines and Vietnam joined the Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall/Winter for the first time.

The fair features 11 pavilions, including China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Macau, Japan as well as Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association.

Multiple zones have been set up to help buyers find sought-after products and suppliers, including four new zones this year: 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.

HKTDC has invited 90 buyer missions comprising more than 5,000 buyers from 43 countries and regions to source at the fair, which includes H&M from Sweden, Dssr Co from Japan and Showpo from Australia.

More than 10 fashion, designer and brand collection shows were organised during the fair, with the local fashion communication hub Fashionally presenting two fashion shows for upcoming local talents.

Fashionally Collection #5 Menswear displayed menswear for the 2016 fall/winter season, with participating designers including designer Derek Chan, Kenax Leung, Kurt Ho and Aries Sin.

Fashionally Collection #6 also launched a collection of women's wear for the 2016 fall/winter season, with participating designers who include Mountain Yam, Walter Kong and Jessica Lau, Effie Hung, etc.

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

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

Also, Fortuna from Japan, known for using the traditional textile Nishijin-Ori in their designs, is showing high-quality fashion products, while Redress will host EcoChic Design 2015/16 Grand Final Fashion Show. (AR)
