A group of Hong Kong designers and artists will celebrate the upcoming Beijing Olympic Games with two special events in July.

Under the theme “Diversity in Action,” the creative promotion is being organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and includes a fashion show and an art and graphics exhibition.

The fashion parade will be held 10 July, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Room 201, 8pm) during Hong Kong Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2009.

All participating designers are either winners or finalists of the Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers' Contest and Hong Kong New Fashion Collection Award, organised by the HKTDC.

In organising the fashion parade and lifestyle exhibition, the Council hopes that buyers visiting Fashion Week, as well as the general public, will appreciate Hong Kong's creative designers and artists and the business opportunities they can help realise.
