By 0 Comments|
HONG KONG | On each Fashion Week, Fashionally curates a selection of the creations from the most upbringing designers of Hong Kong. Fashionally #8 collection offered a display of modern womenswear with a very diverse mixture of styles and cuttings. Some of the brands stepping onto the catwalk are some of Hong Kong's longtime favorites such 112 Mountainyam, Lapeewee and Blind by JW. The show was a very good chance to see first-time designers such Phenotypsetter.
PhenotypsetterDesigner Jane Ng's latest collection Cloudy Swordsman is a slight diversion of her usual aesthetic. Keeping her signature style of turning fabrics into art; this time she likes to play with volume and light to create an ethereal collection. Jane enjoys twisting and wrapping different fabrics together until they take a life of their own. An effect that she masterfully achieves one more time.
Blind by JWJessica Lau and Walter Kong masterfully blend their professional experiences designing in Hong Kong and in Europe -Jessica worked with John Galliano and Alexander McQueen in London-. The result is an interesting mix of Eastern and Western aesthetics into sophisticated, whimsical collections that are often fairy tale-like in nature. For Blind by JW AW17 collection, they have recreated the lore of Sherlock Homes with bold colors.
HangMim Mak's designs stand for their three-dimensional cutting and apocalyptic minimalism. However, in her latest collection she surprises us with the use of more color and sporty elements.
112 MountainyamYam has a flair for masc-femenine, psychedelic street wear. And he, in fact, has showed us many times that he is not afraid of experimenting with graphic prints. For his Searching Self AW17 collection, Yam brings into play deer-link motifs and a colorful burst of electric reds and blues.
From Clothing OfShirley Wong has been working for years as a costume designer; but it wasn't until two years ago that she decided to launch her own label. Her aesthetic is minimalist and monochromatic. Two features that she uses to break fashion and beauty stereotypes. And hence, her AW17 collection Beauty Undefined offers an alternative choice to women who do not want to follow any traditional standards when it comes to feminine style.
LapeeweeYannes Wong and Stephanie Wong make a perfect duo that defines the essence of their signature street-chic womenswear. Her label has been evolving in different directions since they became finalists of Hong Kong's Young Design Contest in 2014. Lapeewee's latest collection, The Gypsy Wanderers breaks down gender stereotypes taking a minimalist approach to masculine, structured materials; with feminine cuts and details.
