About Hong Kong Fashion Extravaganza

 

Hong Kong, long a major sourcing centre for the global fashion industry, is rapidly emerging as Asia’s lifestyle hub, setting trends for the region and beyond.

 

HKTDC Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall/Winter and its concurrent fair, HKTDC World Boutique, Hong Kong, have played an integral role in the city’s transformation. Together, the two fashion fairs draw huge numbers of buyers from all over the world.

 

These buyers come for the global brands on display and for the electrifying variety of fashion shows and events. None is more eagerly anticipated than Hong Kong Fashion Extravaganza, which brings western and eastern fashion lifestyles together in one exclusive gala presentation.

 

The 2014 show will feature the spectacular collections of four world-renowned fashion designers, including Amaya Arzuaga based in Madrid, Calla Haynes based in Paris, Henry Lau based in Hong Kong, as well as Masha Ma, who is presented by W Hotels Worldwide and based in Paris & Shanghai.
