Celebrities and Models Add Glamour to Gala Fashion Show

6 September 2018 – The curtains were raised on major fashion spectacular CENTRESTAGE ELITES last night (5 Sept), showcasing the latest Spring/Summer 2019 collections of Japanese avant-garde streetwear label FACETASM by Hiromichi Ochiai, Hong Kong ready-to-wear womenswear label IDISM by design duo Cyrus Wong and Julio Ng, and Chinese luxury womenswear label Ms MIN by Min Liu.

The gala show was an opening highlight of CENTRESTAGE, which is organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and continues until 8 Sept at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). More than 1,000 guests – including celebrities Miki Yeung, Elaine Yiu, Ron Ng, Mat Yeung, Phoebe Sin and Jeffrey Lai – watched top models parade the collections during the glamourous CENTRESTAGE ELITES show.

CENTRESTAGE, Asia’s premier fashion event, offers fashion brands and designers an ideal platform to gain local and international exposure, and continues to solidify Hong Kong’s position as a fashion hub in Asia. CENTRESTAGE 2018 promises to be the largest edition ever, with a record 230 fashion brands from 22 countries and regions participating. The fair also presents 40 not-to-be- missed events over its four-day run, including more than 20 fashion shows. Fairgoers can also attend designer sharing sessions, industry seminars, networking events and other activities.
