FASHIONALLY COLLECTION #4 – #supportHKdesigners

Hong Kong Fashion Week have arrived again this year.

My followers on IG will know how much I support Hong Kong Fashion Brands. 80% of my wardrobe consist of Hong Kong Designs because I believe Hong Kong have such good quality and unique designs. The price of the clothes is close to better quality high street brands such as Cos but its better quality. Also since the quantities in production is smaller then high street it is less likely to clash clothes with other fashionistas at fashion events or parties. After becoming friends with some of the designers and knowing how hard they work on the collections (most designers create their own print) I’ve decided when I started blogging to try and feature more Hong Kong Design Talents.

For the 4th year in a row, Fashionally presented a fashion show featuring Spring Summer 2016 collections by 10 local fashion brands.  In general, there was a great balance between Creativity and Wearability. Japan seem to be a great influence to the designers with several brands using the theme in their collection. Soft textures mix with hard elements was featured in the womenswear. Green seems to be the colour of the season with many designers featuring colours of nature in all its forms.

Without further doodahs, Here are my favourite looks from all 10 collections.

Really love the relaxed chic vibe of the collection. The fabrics feel very light and easy.  Really love the rich shades of forest green and olive which is not often seen in Spring.

A very strong showing featuring the designer’s signature play of mix of textures and fabrics.  Very surprised with how much I love the green print especially mixing it with another shade of green but it is a print which will look dramatic both from far away but up close.

LR DEMO SS16

A very strong menswear collection by one of my favourite menswear design brands in Hong Kong.  What makes those clothes so seductive is the fact that Demo understands that wearable does not mean boring. Its the tiny details – small cutouts on the shoulders, the pleats and buttons which makes classic menswear styles interesting.  CRAZY about the kimono inspired coat and I will die to wear everything in the collection.

A very unique collection. I respect creativity and individualism but for me the strongest pieces are the more minimal pieces of the collection. The hats and the socks are TO DIE FOR.

A super chic and modern collection for my style sisters.  Eventhough I love drama but its also important for clothes that translate from office to happy hour for the busy fashionista.  Can really visualize some of these dresses at on a women at a bar on friday night looking fabulous.

Those of you will think TimTim is biased and will love this collection and wear most of it -yes you are right. Whats not to love about clothes which are easy to wear , unique yet dramatic? Really love the Japanese influence and the green and black is so chic.  Modement will always be a brand in Hong Kong who inspire me to rethink my style possibilities and once again this collection did exactly that.

A beautiful collection for the sassy sophisticated fashionistas.  There is something very New York and Carrie Bradshaw about this collection. Its chic but with interesting detail which makes it the perfect canvas for accessorising. Thanks so much for making aqua blue look amazingly chic.

LR BLIND BY JW SS16

A super dreamy showing by the designers famous for their ethereal prints.  Really love how the brand show something a bit more dramatic and edgy than their previous collections. The mix of prints worked unexpectedly well together. CRAZY about the asian influenced headpieces. This collection is a fantasy and these are clothes which makes you want to never stop dreaming.

At first I was surprised how toned down the collection was but when I went back to the looks after the show, there was a sense of sophistication and lux element which I haven’t seen from the brand before.  Its a lot more streamlined and refined and the attention to details are done to perfection. There’s a very effortlessly cool yet sophisticated vibe about this collection which gives the beautiful clothes the “buy me” factor.

There are many beautiful pieces in this unique collection but when this final look came out, everyone grasped. It is the definition of the perfect wedding dress for the edgy fashionista bride who wants to be glamorous.  It has traditional bridal elements – the tulle , the bows , the big skirt, the veil but deconstructed and reinterpreted in the most modern and unique way. So refreshing to see the Wedding Gown comeback to close the finale of a fashion show and to be able to do it perfectly takes a lot of guts for a designer.

Anyway hope you enjoy my fashion review on this season’s fashionally fashion show.  Good Show to all the designers.

Thats it for now.

Until next time

HONG KONG FASHION WEEK FW 2015 DAY 1 – Photo Diary from Backstage to Front Row

Hong Kong Fashion Week arrived again – the time of the year which designers present their collection after endless sleepless nights, Hungry models strut down the runway dreaming about the slice of pizza they will enjoy when the show is over and Fashion Bloggers get dressed up and rush from show to show with their eyes and hands permanently on their phones for instant ig and fb posts whenever we have a chance to breath.

This year thanks to Icreate Makeup Workshop, I have the honour to work backstage as a hairstylist as well as being invited to watch many of the shows by Fashion Week’s organisers at HKTDC. From backstage to front row here is a photo diary of some of the favourite moments of my day. (caution this is a very long post but please read on cause the best photos is at the bottom lol)
