I had the pleasure to be part of “Hong Kong In Fashion” – a very exciting fashion month with fashion shows, different types of workshops, as well as street style competition - held by Hong Kong Trade Development Council this year =)

The very first event I have attended was the “Coffee x Fashion” Tote bag DIY workshop. Being held at the Pacific Coffee Emporium in Causeway Bay – one of the coolest coffee shops in Hong Kong I reckon – and having renowned Hong Kong designers Henry Lau and Hindy Ng to share their version of DIY tote bags. It was definitely a fun and enjoyable event!

I am not exactly good at DIY-ing so I was a little clueless when they were distributing the DIY pack but thank god Pancino Wan, the lecturer from Hong Kong Design Institute, was also there to share some DIY tips with everyone so I could at least finish my tote with his tips and it didn’t turn out looking too…ugly =P It is particularly noteworthy that all tote bags were sponsored by OOOBJECT – an environmental friendly brand whose tote bags are made out of milk fabric from expired, germ infected, or oversupplied milk, which were supposed to be chucked out, how caring to the environment is that!

And of course, “Hong Kong In Fashion” is not only about the above event! From 13-16th January 2014, it’ll be the official start of “Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall/Winter”, highlights include “Garment Mart” and “World of Fashion Accessories” featuring basic mass merchandise, “Fashion Gallery” featuring high fashion and brand labels, "Emporium de Mode" - a unique premium section dedicated to present stylish and distinctive garments in an elegant setting, and many more. “HKTDC World Boutique”, Hong Kong 2014 will also be held concurrently and to me, this is the most exciting part of “Hong Kong In Fashion” as you’ll get to see Fashion shows as well as to attend Fashion Market & Topical Seminars , which are dedicated to promoting designers’ collection and brand labels from all over the world.
