The SCAD Hong Kong Fashion Showcase highlights SCAD’s commitment to nurturing young design talent as Hong Kong further solidifies its position as a global fashion hub. The show was hosted in SCAD Hong Kong's magical building: The North Kowloon Magistracy located in the heart of Sham Shui Po district. The building (1960) was designed by Palmer and Turner Architects; and it used to be the magistrate’s court and offices until 2005. SCAD masterfully renovated the building by keeping it's heritage while turning it into a hub for creativity in one of Hong Kong's most enchanting neighborhoods. Photos courtesy of SCAD HONG KONG.
