Twenty sets of eco-fashion designed and produced by the Arts Ambassadors and their school mates were staged to compete for various awards at today's “Dress HK up: Eco-fashion” Gala Fashion Show Finale, with an aim to convey the message of environmental protection and at the same time, demonstrate the creativity of participating students in making use of old garments or materials to produce sets of HK-style outfits.
Presiding at today's Finale, Mr Ko Tin-lung, Chairman of the Arts Promotion Committee of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (ADC), said the "Dress HK up: Eco-fashion" competition was to inspire the creativity of the Arts Ambassadors and to show the sense of team spirit in producing their unique green fashion with local favours.
Organised by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (ADC), “Dress HK up: Eco-fashion” Gala Fashion Show Finale is one of the major events of the 4th Arts Ambassadors-In-School Scheme (AAiSS). In line with the theme of “Dress HK up : Eco-fashion”, participating teams are required to design and produce a set of clothes by patching up and matching old materials or unwanted articles such as old garments and rags. The response was overwhelming. Out of 235 entries, 20 finalists were selected to compete for various awards.
Ms Ranee K, famous fashion designer; Ms Man Fung-yi, visual artist and Mr Pacino Wan, Lecturer, Fashion and Image Design Department of the Hong Kong Design Institute are invited to be the Arts Advisors and Members of the Adjudication Panel of this competition. Before the submission of design, a seminar was hosted by Man Fung-yi and Pacino Wan to share their design techniques and knowledge with the students. The Adjudication Panel then selected 20 finalists to compete for the various awards at today's finale.
After scrupulous consideration, the Design Grand Prize (Secondary School Division) went to Lee Kau Yan Memorial School. They also won the Best Presentation Award and the Most Popular Design Award. For the Primary School Division, the Design Grand Prize went to Tseung Kwan O Methodist Primary School. They also won the Most Creative Award. Please refer to the attachment for the full awardees list.
From 5 to 12 August, the award-winning works will be displayed at the Olympian City 2 for public appreciation. Special thanks are given to Sino Art and Olympian City for their assistance and venue support, as well as students studying Higher Diploma in Fashion and Image Design of the Hong Kong Design Institute for providing make-up and hair styling service for the participating students.
