London has a reputation for nurturing the world’s most innovative, emerging design talents and LONDON show ROOMS in Hong Kong brings together many of those identified as London’s future stars.

LONDON show ROOMS Hong Kong will coincide with, and be a part of the Creativity is GREAT launch, a UKTI initiative under the Britain is GREAT campaign, which aims to celebrate British creativity including fashion, design luxury and craftsmanship.

Through a series of events, exhibitions, lectures and activities, Creativity is GREAT will interweave the commercial with the cultural, building on Hong Kong's existing network of shops and museums and love of brands, shopping, eating out and beautifully made things. The Great week aims to turn their attention onto British style and quality.

During the week, the British Fashion Council will host a series of events, discussion breakfasts and talks under the Fashion is Great umbrella which will celebrate and draw attention to the breadth of British fashion to the Hong Kong audience of high net worth individuals, fashion media, retailers, broader fashion businesses and fashion influencers.
