Combining both classical tailoring techniques and innovative ways of construction, ‘KURT HO’ is a contemporary fashion label aims to provide garments, which satisfies both functional needs and desire for unique aesthetics.
Kurt Ho is the creative force behind his eponymous label, who previously worked at Hong Kong couturier Barney Cheng as Assistant Designer and for French Designer Veronique Leroy in Paris before breaking out on his own. In less than 1 season, Kurt was listed as one of the finalists in Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers’ Contest (YDC) in 2014 and debuted his SS16 collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Tokyo the next year and showcased his FW16 collection at New York Fashion Week in 2016. Focusing on traditional tailoring with clean line and oversized silhouettes, most of his designs are unisex, with voluminous skirts, dresses and blazers designed for both men and women.
何昆承Kurt Ho於2014年創立了個人同名品牌KURT HO。曾為香港高級訂製服品牌Barney Cheng擔任助理設計師的他，用少於一季的時間就獲得了香港青年時裝設計家創作表演賽的提名，並得到法國巴黎著名設計師Veronique Leroy 的賞識，邀請他到當地實習。實習後翌年，他與他的品牌更正式登上東京及紐約時裝周的舞台，成為國際時裝周上其中一個香港新銳設計師。
The set of outfits are inspired by the historical background of Tai Kwun, and designed specifically for Juxtaposed 2018.
