FU­TURE FORCE

Af­ter this year’s YDC, the name on your lips should be knitwear de­signer ARTO WONG: an emerg­ing star in the lo­cal fash­ion scene

#Legend - - INTERVIEW -

PART OF THE AN­NUAL Cen­trestage plat­form, this year's Young Fash­ion De­sign­ers' Con­test 2017 ( YDC) saw Hong Kong's Arto Wong of Vista Ap­par­els crowned our city's one to watch. We en­listed three fash­ion de­sign stu­dents from Hong Kong Polytech­nic Uni­ver­sity's De­sign School – Win­some Ye­ung, Isaac Fan and Cindy Yu – to interview Wong about her big win, her inspirations and her plans for the fu­ture.

When did you get in­ter­ested in fash­ion?

The first time that I felt “Woooo! I look cool!” af­ter wear­ing an out­fit I picked my­self. Yup, that was fash­ion magic!

What’s the big­gest ben­e­fit in join­ing the YDC?

YDC pro­vides a rare op­por­tu­nity for young de­sign­ers to show their de­signs to the real fash­ion in­dus­try. No mat­ter
