HONG KONG — It’s certainly intimidating for a young fashion designer to speak in front of a roomful of editors, buyers and industry heavyweights, and doubly so if they cannot speak English. That was predicament facing two of the four winners named at the Woolmark Prize Hong Kong 2018/19 semifinals on Thursday.
But both of the non-English speakers managed to find the words at a dinner at Aberdeen Street Social, where designers Zhi Chen of I-Am-Chen, Mooyeol Lee of Youser, and Yohei Ohno and Angel Chen, each of whom have eponymous labels, were chosen to move on to the next round of the global competition.

Take a peek into Gucci's new Instagram account (@guccibeauty), which is guided by Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision of beauty. In typical Gucci fashion, the account already features a series of artworks spanning across history, ethnicity, culture and geography. It will showcase and promote its new cosmetic launches and fragrances as well as looks from the fashion shows and special collaborations with artists and talents. #wwdbeauty
