The Council Fashion Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Trade Development debuted three leading designers from the region during F/W 18 fashion week. Harrison Wong, Anveglosa, and Heaven Please+ led Fashion Hong Kong’s FW 18 runway show on February 10, 2018, at The Industria.
Harrison Wong built on inspiration from artist Mark Rothko when developing his abstract collection that blended lots of colors together. Designing for both men and women, his outfits showcased layered pieces, puffy vests and jackets, and even cooler sunglasses. The wearable looks mixed knitted fabrics with sporty wear.
Designer Annette Chan of Anveglosa brought the idea that “every woman should have the chance to explore her creativity,” to life. She transported guests to the French Riviera with her elegant leather pieces and berets, complete with a French soundtrack. She meddled with blacks, white, and burgundy colors, and accentuated sophisticated femininity. Chan’s elegant outfits showcased a woman’s vulnerability but made her mysterious at the same time.
Heaven Please+ designers Lary Cheung and Yi Chan exhibited style inspiration from the 50s. The duo says they drew on ideas from the novel “Wrong Number” by Liu Yichang when designing their collection. Using bold colors, they gave their looks unique twists and cutouts and paired unusual items together from socks to leather gloves. They crafted logos onto items with materials made from sheen and cotton. Fringe and fishnet layering was added to random areas on pieces, which made for eye-popping moments.
