Hong Kong is promoting its young designers, hoping to set the stage for their global growth. This season, The Hong Kong Trade Development Council selected three designers to stage a runway show during New York Fashion Week.
Polly Ho, who designs the label Loom Loop, mixed the traditional craftsmanship of Canton Silk with a contemporary twist. Inspired by a Chinese legend about a tragic love story, she showed a tight lineup of butterfly prints on everything from a maxidress to a wool silk coat.
Harrison Wong showed men’s wear with a cool urban edge. Referencing nature and planet Earth, he offered plenty of great outerwear, which included a marble-print Neoprene blazer; a granite-pattern, raw-edge hooded parka; and a hooded quilted-down cape.
The final talent, Hidy Ng, whose label is H Hidy N.G., offered a romantically elegant lineup. Inspired by an eccentric, well-put-together woman, Hidy presented looks ranging from a black ruffle cape to a gold-lace-embellished tunic.
