Long known to be fast-changing, the fashion industry has once again proved its agility and trailblazing nature in its response to the Covid-19 crisis. To overcome social distancing mandates and other restrictions, leading fashion brands are pioneering digital fashion weeks, VR fashion shows, virtual showrooms and supermodels, among other innovative ways to keep the show going.
Whether you are from the fashion world or not, its innovativeness and adaptability offer much to learn. Fashion Asia Hong Kong recently launched a new initiative, Fashion Asia Digital Series, to invite fashion and brand leaders to share insightful business solutions and actionable perspectives in the form of videos and podcasts. They help you understand and navigate the challenges faced by the global fashion community with a particular focus on the Asian fashion landscape and gain timely insights for free at your fingertips.
Debuting Fashion Asia Digital Series is “In Conversation with Andrew Wu”, in which the LVMH Greater China Group President hosts a fascinating dialogue with Alex Lam and Wesley Wong, two young guns of Hong Kong’s entertainment industry who were both born into show-biz families in the eighties. Andrew picks their brains for how Hong Kong films, TV dramas, cantopop and celebrities have led fashion trends in mainland China since its open-door policy in the early eighties. Alex and Wesley offer a rare glimpse into their early exposure to the local entertainment scene and talk about how their cross-cultural upbringing informs their views on the past and future of the fashion influence of Hong Kong’s show business.
