"852" - Three numerical figures which were used to represent the calling code for Hong Kong, a place of diversity, dynamism and now...design.
Despite its not-so-vast area of one thousand one hundred and four square kilometres, Hong Kong was ironically dubbed as 'Asia's World City'. People often wondered why and how such a minute place claimed such a massive name. The answer? The people - from the British, Indian, Filipino, Chinese and American expats to the mixed cultures, often labeled as 'halfies', (such as yours truly) name it and they got it. Such diversity has embraced an array of beliefs, practices and interests...including fashion. Hong Kong has definitely upped the ante in the world of fashion.
To honour such eminence, Raffles International College brought together a contemporary Hong Kong-inspired exhibition that showcased the works of their students from the Interior design, Graphic design, Fashion design and last but definitely not the least, Fashion marketing departments. The public display was held in G/F, Centre Point, 181-185 Gloucester Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong last 11th of April, 2014 up until the 17th. Drop by and check out the amazing works! ...or check out this video that I pulled together. By the way, this short clip's also a hint for my next post!
Can you guess what it's about?
