"Hong Kong Design Series" Exhibition V
Are you what you wear? Fashion is not only a reflection of social lifestyle, it is also a representation of culture. The fashions of different eras each have distinctive characteristics, and they also mirror the development of different attitudes to fashionable dress in changing times. The "Fashion Attitude - Hong Kong Fashion Design" exhibition, with Ms Judy Mann as guest curator, is the fifth programme in the "Hong Kong Design Series".
The first part of this exhibition illustrates the development of Hong Kong fashion over the past 50 years, photographs and brief history are shown to serve as background introduction. In the second part, nine established local fashion designers including Barney Cheng, Lu Lu Cheung, Ika, Peter Lau, Spy Henry Lau, Walter Ma, William Tang, Pacino Wan and Benny Yeung, will be invited to stage their works that best express their fashion attitude.
