The learning curve
Graduating from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University with a BA in Knitwear Design and Technology in 2014, designer Kenneth Cheung loves to experiment with new textiles and technology in his collections. His label KHOCHEUNG, debuted in 2014 for a collaboration with JOYCE Boutique, Machine-A and SHOWstudio but later took a hiatus. A new KHOCHEUNG collection is currently in development and will be launched for this year’s Autumn/Winter season.“I like to come up with new forms and textures, and knitwear allows me more room for experimentation in this regard. It is easier to control in production and it also fascinates me to see how one thread can lead to so many different textures depending on how you handle it,” says Cheung. His upcoming collection will be a continuation of what he’s been doing since YDC 2016 –experimenting with different embroidery and patchwork techniques on basic wool suiting fabrics, and giving the finished garments a sportswear twist.As ...

Heritage re-imagined
Hong Kong’s inspiration for fashion has taken a shift. For the longest time, many of the city’s emerging designers admired and were influenced by designs that came from the holy trinity of fashion capitals – London, Paris and Milan. But now, the directions of the winds have changed. In conjunction with China’s rising dominance on the world stage, local designers have begun to look inward and into their own heritage as a source of inspiration to create a more diverse and inclusive, global fashion industry. A few homegrown heroes that are spearheading the movement are Kay Li, Yat Pit, Cynthia & Xiao and Loom Loop.   It goes without saying that marriage can be a daunting experience filled with contradicting feelings of joy and fear.
