Get ready to be swept away in a whirlwind of fashion, glamour and beauty this September as Centrestage prepares to make landfall in Hong Kong this September. Running from 4 to 7 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, this four-day marathon will see over 240 brands showcase their latest collections in over 40 fashion shows, contests and special showcases.
It doesn’t really get bigger than this – indeed, with the fourth edition of Centrestage, not only has the event established itself as the premier fashion showcase in Asia, it has also served as a springboard for Hong Kong to become a true-blue fashion hub. So expect to see international designers like Joseph Altuzarra brushing shoulders with local talents such as Anais Mak, both of whose collections will be exhibited in the Centrestage Elites section.
The event will also provide a platform for young designers to showcase their creations through the Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers’ Contest 2019. With more number of local brands participating this year, organisers HKTDC are more than justified in expecting an even greater buzz about the event this year. So HKTDC’s Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau says: “Centrestage is a great place to connect with global buyers and fashionistas at the same time. With a greater number of local and international fashion brands participating this year, it underscores the event’s position as Asia’s leading launch and marketing platform for fashion brands.”
