Finalist
IMPERFECTIONS
Fong Sze Man, Mandy
“Gorgeous” would be the best description for Mandy’s collection. The designer has cleverly turned some old soft and fluffy furniture fabrics into beautiful show pieces. Upcycling is a main focus of this collection, used homeware textiles waste to recycle blankets and pillowcases into stunning garments with zero waste.
VOTE
Finalist
EXHAUSTING A CROWD
Tsang On Ting, Vicky
Vicky’s design is the most stunning among all the works because the whole collection uses 3D printing technology, a field rarely explored by designers. Not only the production cycle is long, but also it is difficult to make. Fortunately, the final visual effect is very special, with a glitch art style.
VOTE
Finalist
AN UNQUIET MIND
Wan Ka Wing, Justine
Justine's collection is simple yet unique as the silhouette and patterns of the collection originate from Chinese characters’ strokes and meaning. When the pieces are opened, the Chinese character will be revealed with each character carries a specific meaning. This is how traditional calligraphy is fused into modern fashion.
VOTE
Finalist
SHADOW BEHIND
Lai Chi Fung, Antony
Through Antony’s design concept, audiences will learn the aesthetic concept of “mystery”, which is about hidden beauty. He reveals the beauty of the garments in the inconspicuous details of the clothes, and his interpretation of light and shadow in the stitching of the suits is very clever.
VOTE
Finalist
WOKE UP LIKE THIS
Fok Wing Yin, Christy
The use of colour is ingenious, with black as the main colour and a touch of early morning sky blue to capture the feeling of just waking up. The design is not digitally printed, but drawn by herself, which is more casual and playful. The most interesting thing in the collection is the plaid element of the shorts, which really creates the feeling of a boxer.
VOTE
Finalist
RENOUCE ONES ILLUSION
Lo Chi Yin, Chris
Audiences will feel the influence of Yohji Yamamoto in Chris’s designs, and the most special part of this collection is the colour of the fabric after dyeing. Another element that cannot be seen through the pictures is the smell. Chris uses herbs to dye the fabrics naturally to create a rustic aroma for a natural feel.
VOTE
Finalist
I AM NOT INFECTED
Tam Lok Yee, Lorraine
The first impression that struck people about this collection was its colourfulness, especially the infrared sweatshirt, which is refreshing. The standout item in the collection is the “lung” shaped crossbody bag. When Lorraine introduced it to me, she smiled and said the “lung bag” also pays tribute to the “waste bag” which is not practical in the market nowadays.
VOTE
Finalist
FLAWS REBORN
Yeung Hiu Kei, Frona
The most eye-catching element of Frona’s design is the fluid metallic feel of the fabric, and it looks as good as expected with no colour difference. The styling makes use of asymmetrical design, and each piece can match with other clothes separately, making it practical and wearable.
VOTE
Finalist
WHIMSICAL
Leung Yuen Wa, Rahsa
People would be attracted by Rahsa’s collection of fluorescent colours at first glance. The vibrant colours are intended to make us happy in the context of the dull epidemic. The design is full of retro toy prints, like seven-piece puzzles and Rubik’s cubes, but the fabric is modern and glossy, giving people a sense of both retro and contemporary trends.
VOTE
Finalist
GENTLE INDIFFERENCE
Tsang Cheuk Iu, Venus
This collection reveals a very heavy sense of Wabi-sabi, and the most special thing is that each outfit is wrapped in different tulle. After chatting with her, I realised that the inspiration comes from the nylon nets on the outer wall of buildings when building a shack. Abstract architectural elements run through her whole collection, and the different forms signify different stages in the building process.
