About Fashion PMQ
September this year in Hong Kong is all about FASHION!
To echo the call from HKSAR government to boost the local fashion industry, Hong Kong Design Centre is going to organise a first of the kind fashion carnival which will run through 7-19 September at PMQ and around Hong Kong. The fashion carnival includes Fashion Mart, Crossover Pop-ups, fashion & lifestyle exhibitions, workshops and live performance etc. It is a valuable opportunity to nurture future local “fash-preneurs” in a scaled fashion B2C event in complement to the CentreStage, a concurrent B2B fashion event organised by HKTDC , and definitely a great fun for all fashion lovers to livening up their wardrobe and accessories rack!
