Young Designers Showcase a Stylish Future
Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers’ Contest Winners Announced


Overall Winner: Anki Cheung
Dark Rain 
This moody collection takes a dark look at nature with flowing chiffon and silk. The black-and-grey fabric has raw edges and comes with metal beads and chains. The raindrop is realised through tie dye and an embossed effect. Each outfit comes with a matching headpiece that provides an illusion of rain

  Casual and Jeanswear Group Winner: Kathew Law
Re-encounter the Memory 
A kaleidoscope, a childhood present from the designer’s grandmother, provided the inspiration for this smart, stylish collection. Ever-changing lines intercut to form triangles and hexagons at every turn. Tassels add dramatic effect, and heavy fabric and knits are used to help create sculptural forms
  Contemporary Daywear Group Winner: Kathy Chan 
Beijing opera provides the spirit for this collection. The designer has taken elements of the costume and headpieces of this traditional art form and given them modern dimensions. Beading is carefully hand-sewn, while leather tassels and lacing are also motifs. The muted palette of beige and green is a bold variation on the usually colourful traditional dress

Party and Eveningwear Group Winner: Seth Yeung
This collection offers a scenario of how the human body might change if an alien virus spread among humans. Three-dimensional beading, resembling the triangular shape of a virus, is used extensively. Cashmere, mink and rex fur add a touch of luxury and femininity. Emphasis is placed on volume and the shoulder in a reference to the 1980s
