As the foundress of Classics Anew, Janko Lam is well-known for hybrid fashion pieces where the traditional meets the modern. After graduated from Caritas Bianchi College, Lam worked as a costume designer for stage and drama productions at TVB in 2008. In 2010, Lam founded her first company, Mutt Museum Design Company Limited. In 2011, Lam won the championship of the EcoChic Design Award from a fashion design competition for Asia’s emerging design talents organized by REDRESS, a Hong Kong-based charity organization which drives environmental sustainability in the fashion industry. As the champion, Lam interned with a top sustainable fashion brand in London. In 2012, Lam collaborated with ESPIRIT and launched the first local collection on recycled textile capsule. In February 2012, Lam participated in the “Fashion Visionaries” exhibition by invitation of the Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association. Her show piece was kept in the permanent collection of the Hong Kong Heritage Museum after the exhibition. With her love and passion for Chinese costumes, the brand Classics Anew was conceptualized and launched in 2014. Lam subsequently started a retail shop with two partners at PMQ, a creative hub at SOHO Central, in the same year and kicked off her first online store in 2015. Lam is enthusiastic and devoted to her oriental fashion design, aiming at raising the public’s interest in the Chinese heritage and modern aesthetics.
