Copenhagen Fashion Week and Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF), beginning from January 31, will host Hong Kong Eco Fashion. The four-day fashion programme will present sustainable works of four selected fashion designers— Kenax Leung, Kay Li, Vickie Au and Dora Chu. Hong Kong Eco Fashion will present eco-friendly creations for the first time.

Fashion Hong Kong has collaborated with The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA) to introduce eco fashion to Copenhagen. Fashion Hong Kong, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), comprises a series of international promotional events which will present Hong Kong fashion designers and labels in the global fashion arena. Hong Kong fashion accessory brands together with the runway showpieces will be presented at the Fashion Hong Kong Gallery at CIFF.

Among the four Hong Kong fashion designers, Kenax Leung will return to the runway with his new collection ‘waste is not just waste’, which represents the contrast between a jolt of energy as well as a sense of familiarity and comfort. Kay Li, with her “The Great Expectation” collection, will evoke the feeling of helplessness to the explosion of anger, eagerness to happiness experienced by a bride of an arranged marriage. Vickie Au of House of V will showcase the geometry and architecture-inspired collection ‘Sensuous Illusion’, which heralds a new type of re-sculpted simplicity, where smart mixing of materials and colour combination becomes a unique part of the minimalist look. Dora Chu’s latest party-dress collection ‘Eternal Empress’ introduces royal history intrigue by merging bold, romantic and textural elements, which form the core of her brand Maison Vermillion.

“In Hong Kong, we have an ideal and supportive environment for the fashion industry,” said Raymond Yip, deputy executive director, HKTDC. “We have a strong heritage in the fashion business; from textile supplies, fashion design and manufacturing to marketing and sales support services. We have a pool of talented and creative fashion designers. You can easily recognise their creativity and aspirations from the aesthetic blend of fabrics and cuttings of their collections. Through promoting the Hong Kong designers and brands in the international fashion arena, we hope to promote and showcase their talents. This time, we are also glad that the Hong Kong designers have included some eco fashion elements in their latest collections,” added Yip.

Fashion Hong Kong show will be held on the first day of the Copenhagen Fashion Week at the Thorvaldsens Museum. The Fashion Hong Kong show will be staged in a historical venue surrounded by world-class art and sculptures unique to Copenhagen. (RR)
