Since its establishment, Centrestage has been one of Hong Kong’s biggest annual fashion events. Put on by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the highly anticipated event returned this year from 4–7 September, with a lineup of fashion and design powerhouses.
More than 240 fashion brands and international buyers flew in from across the globe to attend the four-day style extravaganza complete with runway shows, designer sharing sessions, open talks, trend analyses, and more.
This year’s Centrestage was a celebration of Asia’s top designers, including Hong Kong’s very own Anais Mak of Anaïs Jourden and Joseph Altuzarra of Altuzarra, who presented their Pre-Spring 2020 collections for the first time ever in Asia. Hong Kong-based fashion label Anaïs Jourden has risen to fame with its rich texture and techniques, as well as its “neo-bourgeois” proposal. Altuzarra, on the other hand, showcased an earthy collection spans French sensuality and easy American sophistication.
The runway presentations drew a crowd of fashionistas and celebrities including Ashley Lam, Veronica Shiu, Sharon Chan, Dickson Yu and more. Check out the highlights from Centrestage 2019 in our gallery below.
