Asia’s Top Fashion Event CENTRESTAGE Returns Next Week
Featuring close to 40 fashion events, OPENSTAGE for the Public

31 August 2017 – Top local and international creative talent will bring the latest cutting-edge designs and industry insights to CENTRESTAGE, Asia’s premier fashion event organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). In its second edition, the event is also one of the celebration events marking the 20th Anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR. Staged from 6-9 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), CENTRESTAGE is a platform for international, especially Asian, fashion labels and designers to promote their brands and launch their latest collections.

Under the theme “Nouveau Playhouse,” more than 210 fashion brands from 22 countries and regions will be housed under three theme zones: GLAM, ALLURE and METRO. The opening gala fashion show CENTRESTAGE ELITES will feature the Spring/Summer 2018 collection of Hong Kong’s FFIXXED STUDIOS, founded by Kain Picken and Fiona Lau; as well as  the celebrated Korean designer Juun.J. who will stage his debut Hong Kong runway show. Several celebrities and artists have been invited to attend the events. For details, please see event highlights below.

The designer of Japanese fashion label G.V.G.V., Mug, will serve as the VIP judge at this year’s Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers' Contest (YDC). Fifteen finalists will showcase their creative concepts on stage, competing in five award categories. CENTRESTAGE will also feature fashion shows from brands including anagram, DORISKATH, HARRISON WONG, IKA BUTONI, izzue, KENAXLEUNG, LOOM LOOP, Maison Vermillion, the fashion environmental NGO Redress, the Knitwear Innovation and Design Society.  The HKTDC will also organise trend seminars hosted by WGSN, Fashion Snoops and Pantone. Fashion Summit (HK) 2017-Zero Impact, the Asia’s largest panel for discussing sustainability in the fashion industry, will be organised for the first time.

To encourage wider public participation, the HKTDC has launched a month-long citywide promotion “Hong Kong in Fashion,” running from 15 August-30 September. The promotion features more than 90 activities in partnership with upscale hotels, shopping malls, fashion retail shops and restaurants as well as design institutions.
