Jointly organized by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and the DeMortfort University (DMU), the first International Symposium of Intimate Apparel was held on 17 January (Thursday) on PolyU campus, to promote the exchange of the latest knowledge and development of intimate apparel among academics and industrialists.

The Symposium brought together some 180 local and overseas lingerie experts, including prominent intimate apparel industrialists and academics, to share their insights and experiences. It was the first joint effort of the Ace Style Institutes of Intimate Apparel of PolyU and DMU, and was also an event to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of PolyU's Institute of Textiles and Clothing (ITC) and the 60th anniversary of DMU.

In addition, Ms Julie King and Ms Alison Prince, Head and Senior Lecturer of DMU's Department of Fashion and Textiles, also shared their knowledge on plus-size bra design.
