Fashion Hong Kong Spotlight at Copenhagen FashionWeek
Three Top Designers to Feature in Fashion Show and Fair

26 January 2016 - Three leading Hong Kong fashion designers, Doris Kath Chan, Kenax Leungand Lulu Cheung will take part at the prestigious Copenhagen Fashion Week and Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF), from 3 to 5 February.

Fashion Hong Kong comprises a series of overseas promotional events organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) to present Hong Kong fashion designers and labels in the global fashion arena. Fashion Hong Kong returns to Copenhagen for a second year with its three selected fashion designers at Copenhagen Fashion Week (AW16) and CIFF. The designers are ready to show their versatility in the Danish capital, where the fashion community is known for its minimalist approach.

A dazzling Fashion Hong Kong Show will be held in the Copenhagen City Hall from 3pm on 4 February. This is the only show presenting Asian designers during the week. Of the three Hong Kong fashion designers, Doris Kath Chan is taking part in the event for a second time, while renowned designer Lulu Cheung and up-and-coming talent Kenax Leung make their debut at the event. Their Autumn/ Winter 2016 collections for the show display the depth of their talent and skill. Doris Kath Chan's Little by Little is symbolic of innocence and a fresh start in life – including first sights, sensations and moves. Kenax Leung's BE NOT SO GENTLE is inspired by Mel Kendrick, an artist known primarily for his wood and cast-concrete sculptures; the fashion style celebrates youth culture and a passion for experimentation. Lulu Cheung's Flow takes its cue from the movements of ballet, evoking harmonious and peaceful rhythms, a post-romantic spirit and the power of the human body.

To further showcase Hong Kong fashion designs, Fashion Hong Kong also has a presence at CIFF, which takes place at Bella Center this year. Fashion Hong Kong Gallery will introduce the three designers' labels and several fashion accessories brands to buyers, the media and fashion followers (Brands listed below).

Hong Kong is regarded as a fashion centre for Asia, well-respected for its design talent, high quality products and international outlook. The Fashion Hong Kong show and Fashion Hong Kong Gallery provide unique opportunities for professional buyers and the media to learn about Asia's design talent and explore new business opportunities.
