Presented by Leisure and Cultural Services Department

Organised by Hong Kong Heritage Museum

 

Combining fashion design and craftsmanship, the "Fashion + Paper, Scissors and Rock" exhibition invites fashion designers to work with local craftsmen to explore the possibilities of cross-disciplinary creations. The multi-layered meaning of "Paper, Scissors and Rock" extends not only to techniques and materials, but also to creative styles. Invited by Hong Kong Heritage Museum, five young fashion designers and artists, Koyo William Cheung, Meiyi Cheung, Tricia Flanagan, Kenny Li and Singchin Lo, worked collaboratively with traditional craftsmen, such as Lai Yui-kwong, Luk Shu-choi and Luk Keung-choi, Chow Yin-wen, Kenneth Mo, Joseph Tso and Chan Chor-kiu, covering the techniques of gold gilding, copperware making, Cantonese opera headgear making, paper crafting, Guangcai porcelain painting, and rattan weaving to create a unique fashion series. The passion and creativity of the contemporary designers, together with the persistence of traditional craftsmen and the inheritance of their craftsmanship, sparkle to form part of the unique culture of Hong Kong.
