THE HONG KONG FASHION DESIGNERS ASSOCIATION

香港時裝設計師協會

The Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association (HKFDA) was founded in 1984 by a group of successful and enthusiastic local fashion designers. As a non-profit making and self-financed organization, it aims to unite fashion designers, with both professionalism and expertise, to develop and better both their careers and the industry within and beyond the territory. 


With supports from the industry and fellow designers in the past 34 years, the Association has evolved to a key platform to share ideas and experiences through organizing fashion events such as catwalk shows, seminars, interviews and group discussions. Reputed as an official unit of Hong Kong fashion elites who provides excellent services with expertise and hence is recognized as one of the leading fashion institutions in the region of Hong Kong SAR, Mainland China and other cities in the South Pacific region. 

Besides the two most renowned and recognized events held previously; The 10 Best Dressed Personalities Award and The Gala Fashion Show, HKFDA had initiated many special projects with the support from CreateHK in recent years.

The "Fashion Visionaries 2010" in Shanghai was one of the highlights of the HKSAR program for World Expo 2010, Shanghai.  Riding on its success was the staging of “Fashion Visionaries 2011” Exhibition and Show at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.

 

In 2012, the Association co-organized a Guinness World Record breaker, “The World’s Greatest Catwalk 2012” with the Danish Fashion Institute, held in iconic Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade with the Victoria Harbour as a backdrop.  In 2016, HKFDA organized the "Fashion Mirage" Show in Centre Stage followed by the "UNZIP Creativity Hong Kong Fashion in Taipei 2016" at Huashan 1914 Creative Park, Taipei as one of the highlights of Hong Kong Week. 

"JUXTAPOSED Fashion x Music 2017" took place at Tamar Park to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR. Staged at an impressive setting with the night view of Victoria Harbour as its backdrop, works from 80 Hong Kong renowned and young fashion designers paraded in the show together with live music by various local and overseas music performers. By fusing and combining fashion with music, JUXTAPOSED created a dynamic interaction to cross inspire and to spark both industries and their creative talents, further generated the interests and awareness of the creativity of Hong Kong culture and designs. It was surely a notable and fantastic collaboration, a true celebration of Hong Kong style and culture.

香港時裝設計師協會(協會)成立於1984年,是一個屬於自負盈虧的非弁利機構。其創辦人均是成就出眾的資深時裝設計師,不但對時裝設計充滿熱誠並付于力行,為推動本地時裝設計而創辦本協會;藉此凝聚時裝界精英,發揮業界力量。協會自創辦至今已三十四載,承蒙業界和設計師的支持得以不斷成長和進步。

除了最廣為人知的「十大傑出時裝.視野大獎」及「周年時裝匯演」,近年協會更在創意香港支持下,舉辦多項特別項目。
