Hong Kong Fashion AW2019 NYFWFeb 10, 2019
NYFW: The Shows at Industria were captivated as Fashion Hong Kong presented three leading brands on the runway Friday afternoon. The show was in collaboration with Hong Kong Trade Development Council Fashion Hong Kong. The venue was filled to capacity as hundreds of editors, influencers, buyers, and celebrities sitting front row to see the latest looks from 112 mountainyam, Anveglosa, and Heaven Please+. 112 mountainyam took guests on a voyage into the wilderness. Taking elements from natural environments and intertwining them with a unique take on camo. Twisting primary colors over the traditional basic gray tailored suits, the collection projects a militant sportswear meets high-end aesthetic. Beauty accents, like organically placed bright eye shadows, slept on hair, and disheveled cornrows all brought the collection to life. Attention to detail did not go unnoticed in the collection of Anveglosa, self-taught tailor Annette Chan, is known primarily for strong leather silhouettes, careful craftsmanship, and pleated to perfection designs. The collection was inspired by the “good old days”; a symbol of our respect towards the tradition and heritage of the fashion industry. The collection demonstrated a fine tuned aesthetic using delicate applications of different material combinations; the finest lambskin leathers, silks, fabrics and embroidery. Presenting feminine silhouettes with compelling layers, and punctuated with leather yacht master hats, were structured coats layered over flowing dresses. The collection began with several all black ensembles, flourishing into hunter green, and finally melting into striking white looks to close the collection. The Fashion Hong Kong show then illuminated with a full color collection by Heaven Please+. Inaugurated with a lavender pleated coat draped over a full-length neon yellow skirt; the crowd was awed by look after look of color, textiles and print-driven garments. A bomber style jacket-dress in military green with multi-colored patchwork closed the show. Accessories included long, seat-belt style belts cinching the oversized looks; completed with sculptural hair styles. Notable guests included Melody Mitchell of VH1 Black Ink Crew, Nicole Kang of Netflix You / CW Batwoman, Miss America Nia Franklin, Francesca Curran of Orange is The New Black, Actress & Model Megan Pormer and Social Influencer, Woah Vicky.
