Female (Malaysia) - - FEMALE NOVEMBER 2018 -

Find out which de­sign­ers are our Fash­ion Writer’s favourites from Asia’s big­gest fash­ion event, Cen­trestage 2018!

It’s been three years run­ning, yet Hong Kong’s CEN­TRESTAGE 2018 fair has only got­ten bolder and bet­ter! As Asia’s premier fash­ion event un­der the Hong Kong Trade and De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil (HKTDC), the four-day af­fair, which hap­pened in Septem­ber, was an ex­pe­ri­ence I could never for­get. Host­ing over 230 brands from 22 coun­tries across the globe, I found that the beauty of the event was the one-on-one con­nec­tion that I was able to build with de­sign­ers on the fair­grounds. The event fo­cused on the theme of ‘To­mor­row Lab’, which fea­tured three the­matic zones: Metro, fea­tur­ing ca­sual, ev­ery­day wear; Iconic, show­cas­ing con­tem­po­rary chic de­signs; and Al­lure, where re­fined crafts­man­ship and avant-garde pieces were dis­played. Although each de­signer or brand show­cased ex­cep­tional pieces that com­ple­mented each of their zones, I’ve rounded up three de­sign­ers who were able to cross those bound­aries and rep­re­sent all three themes.
