    (3) After dedicating nine years working for several luxury fashion brands, Effie Hung (www.effiehung.com) launched her own independent fashion label, Effie Hung.  The label is a journey of exploring the possibility of finding harmony between two extremes; when technology meets art, when classic twists with modernity, conceptual meets wearable aesthetic, architectural with softness. Her woman is free, energetic and intelligent. Youthful sprite, affordability and wearability are essential to the label.

     

    Effie studied fashion design at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, graduating with First Class Honours. She was a YDC winner in the Party wear Category , and second runner up, in the 2006 Fur Design Competition.  She’s a recipient of the William T.L. Yao Memorial Scholarship, Dr. Y.K.

    Yannes was a YDC finalist in 2014. She worked at the haute couture brand “Cecilia Yau Couture” after graduating from a local traditional design institution - Caritas Bianchi College of Careers. To her, fashion is not just clothing but an attitude.  This is reflected in her designs where clean cut and A-line dresses express a strong and suave femininity.  The use of fabric collages gives each outfit a more textured feel and a sense of playfulness.  It strikes a perfect balance between strong and gentle - what femininity is about.

     

    (5) KEVIN HO (www.kevinho.com.hk), the label, was launched in 2015. It is a luxury womenswear label, which embraces sophistication, individuality and modernity. Kevin expresses these elements through designs that are fused with a sense of power and delicacy. Kevin explores this vision by creating statement pieces that combines structural silhouette with distinctive textile. It is his atypical craftsmanship that delivers a cutting edge and unique style to a modern woman.

     

    Kevin Ho graduated from the London College of Fashion, specialising in womenswear. Before returning to Hong Kong, Kevin interned with a semi-couture British label, Yong, which allowed him to develop and hone his expertise in atypical craftsmanship. Kevin debuted with his collection “The Crossing” and received the the Party and Eveningwear award in YDC2015.

     

    (6) Mim's label HANG (www.hanggggggg.com) - the German word for “slope” - launched in 2012, offering experimental yet wearable clothing. A lover of black, Mim won the 2012 YDC Overall Winner and Party & Evening Wear Group prizes with her collection in contrasting black neoprene and fluorescent chiffon. Mim’s avant-garde label is defined by sharp contrasts in fabric, colour, cutting, shape and silhouette, which typify her style.  In 2014, she was invited to represent Hong Kong in the Asia Fashion Collection show, organised by Parco Department Store and Vantan Inc, in Tokyo and New York. The latest HANG collection is available at Hong Kong fashion store D-mop.

     

    (7) Sherman Kwan ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) founded her eponymous brand in 2015. The founder started designing with unique and innovative notions. Sherman stands for Step out of the Box’ and discovers new ideas from conservative beliefs, which are reflected in her experimental design with distinctive cutting.

     

    (8) A graduate of Nottingham Trent University, Shirley Wong ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) excels at handmade knits with structural details. Before setting up her own label FromClothingOf this year, Shirley was a costume designer at Television Broadcast for four years.
