Asia's premier fashion event CENTRESTAGE is returning to Hong Kong for its fourth edition this September.
Over the three years since its inception, CENTRESTAGE has showcased countless up and coming Asian fashion brands, designer labels, and talents for international markets. The event will be taking place at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre from September 4-7.
As well as the bustling fairground expo, CENTRESTAGE will feature a lineup of talks, inspiring seminars, and networking sessions to keep attendees ahead of market trends. Runway shows will unveil the latest designer collections from the region - last year, over 40 activities were presented in the four-day run, including more than 20 fashion shows.
The highly anticipated CENTRESTAGE ELITES Opening Gala Show on September 4 once again marks the opening of the event. This year's show features designers Anais Mak of ANAÏS JOURDEN and Joseph Altuzarra of Altuzzarra, who will present their collections for the first time in Asia.
Another highlight will be the finals of the Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers' Contest 2019. Over the years, the contest has evolved alongside Hong Kong's garment and fashion industries, becoming a launching pad for up-and-coming designers with the ambition to launch their own labels. Young competitors will have the opportunity to meet and receive valuable advice from world-famous designers on the judging panel.
This year, Martine Rose, Kenzō Takada, Vivienne Tarn, Tsumori Chisato, Andreas Kronthaler, Martine Sitbon, and Margareta van den Bosch are amongst the VIP Judges. Renowned international designer Mihara Yasuhiro will also be helping to select the winner of the competition.
