Celebrities Add Glamour to Gala Fashion Show

7 September 2017 – A major fashion spectacular, CENTRESTAGE ELITES, took to the stage last night (6 September), showcasing the latest Spring/Summer 2018 collections of Hong Kong brand FFIXXED STUDIOS and Korean label JUUN.J.

The opening gala show was a highlight of CENTRESTAGE, which is organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), and continues through 9 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The event aims to further reinforce Hong Kong’s position as an international fashion capital.

CENTRESTAGE ELITES showcased Kain Picken and Fiona Lau’s FFIXXED STUDIOS, as well as the works of Juun.J. The Korean designer staged his first Hong Kong runway show, which was made possible through a collaboration with the brand's partner JOYCE and the HKTDC. JUUN.J's 2017 Fall/Winter collection is also currently on offer at JOYCE.

Top models showcased the designers’ collections during the gala fashion show, which was attended by nearly 1,000 guests, including celebrities Hilary Tsui, Vincent Wong, Owen Cheung and Janet Ma.

Asia’s fashion promotion and launch platform, CENTRESTAGE runs from 6-9 September at the HKCEC. The trade show features more than 210 fashion brands from 22 countries and regions, as well as nearly 40 spectacular events, including some 20 other runway shows.
