This year, the Honk Kong Fashion Week was all about glittery off shoulder necklines and ruffles with predominant looks. For ruffles, it was more like a dance and bounce session around the necklines of sashaying models.
The Hong Kong Fashion Week is held twice a year and it is attended by a number of famous designers who like to showcase their collection. The recent show that was held from July 5th to 8th was all about creation of Greek goddesses like dresses and skirts that pouted volumes of intricate artwork.
Espen Salberg – a Norwegian based designer joined the fashion week, to show off jersey fabric and minimalistic looks that hugged the body. Salberg’s collection hinted of his previous works with professional dancers that used to wear his dresses, gowns, skirts and stylishly fitted harem pants.
Another designer – Ali Charisma took his inspirational themes from urban and casual wear. All his fabrics were a mix of hard and soft – think of coupling yoga with work and you’ll get the idea. Most of Charisma’s looks divinely highlighted the combination of leather with chiffon and silk, with strong feminine look to it.
Last but not the least, the audience was wooed by the regular-on-runway collection of Ika – the Indonesian designer, who lies in Hong Kong now. Her work was known for spliced fabric and geometric designs that add to the color and grace of any project she works on. Ika was heavily applauded for showcasing her Spring – Summer 2011 collection, which mainly encompassed blue, black and white, maroon and pink dresses and tops.
