Hong Kong Talent to Show During NYFW

Fashion Hong Kong will return to New York Fashion Week next month with a new slate of designers, which will be presented in a group show.

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) will present the fall/winter collections from three labels, Anveglosa, Harrison Wong and Heaven Please+, in a group runway show at Industria on Feb. 9.

“We’ve noticed lately that the younger generation of fashion designers are rapidly growing and expanding their brands and networks. Many of these talented designers have already built their names locally and are ready to take the next step. That’s where we come in to bring these young talents to the international platform,” said Ralph Chow, regional director, Americas, Hong Kong Trade Development Council, adding HKTDC will host similar events at the Tokyo and London shows.

Annette Chan’s Anveglosa is a women’s contemporary brand specializing in European leather. For 30 years the brand, which features exquisite craftsmanship and flattering silhouettes, has been sold at prestigious retailers like Harvey Nichols and Galeries Lafayette Beijing.

Harrison Wong’s eponymous label offers edgy, aggressive men’s wear. The award-winning designer’s accolades include winning the Hong Kong Young Designer’s Contest and the Grand Prix Contest in Japan. His designs are sold in ships like K11 and Harbour City.

Design duo Yi Chan and Lary Cheung founded Heaven Please+ in 2011 focus on enabling wearers to express their individuality through their clothes. The pair, which also creates costumes for Hong Kong artists, opened their first store in 2013, which has been recognized as a destination in Hong Kong.

In addition to the three brands, which will be shown on the runway, 10 additional designers will be featured at Showroom Seven from Feb. 7-20.

HKTDC will host a party following the fashion show to celebrate the designers.
