The fourth edition of Centrestage, a premier Asian fashion event organised by the HKTDC and sponsored by Create Hong Kong, has opened.
“Future Tribes” is the central theme this year and there are three thematic zones: Allure – representing craftsmanship, refinement and elegance; Iconic – displaying avant-garde designs; and Metro – showcasing “contemporary, minimalistic expressions of urban life”.
Centrestage hosts some 240 brands from 23 countries and regions, including new Hong Kong participants such as Charlotte Ng Studio, Arto, and YMDH, as well as overseas brands such as Allez Les Moeufs (Italy), Cumu11ate (Korea), Goddess Armour (Macau), Miesu (India) and Vutalinh (Vietnam).
Thirty-six buying missions comprising about 1600 international fashion buyers were organised to visit the event, providing opportunities for designers to interact with the industry and get useful market insights.
The event will run until Saturday at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre as a four-day extravaganza showcasing high-calibre local and overseas fashion talents. More than 40 events will be held during the show period.
