London has a reputation for nurturing the world’s most innovative, emerging design talents and LONDON show ROOMS in Hong Kong brings together many of those identified as London’s future stars.

LONDON show ROOMS Hong Kong will coincide with, and be a part of the Creativity is GREAT launch, a UKTI initiative under the Britain is GREAT campaign, which aims to celebrate British creativity including fashion, design luxury and craftsmanship.

Through a series of events, exhibitions, lectures and activities, Creativity is GREAT will interweave the commercial with the cultural, building on Hong Kong's existing network of shops and museums and love of brands, shopping, eating out and beautifully made things. The Great week aims to turn their attention onto British style and quality.

During the week, the British Fashion Council will host a series of events, discussion breakfasts and talks under the Fashion is Great umbrella which will celebrate and draw attention to the breadth of British fashion to the Hong Kong audience of high net worth individuals, fashion media, retailers, broader fashion businesses and fashion influencers.

LONDON show ROOMS is a British Fashion Council project, supported by UK Trade & Investment and aimed at boosting British designers exports and raising the profile of British designers in international markets.

Launched in Paris in October 2008, this initiative provides a unique opportunity for emerging British designers to promote themselves outside London. The project is co-curated and directed by Anna Orsini and Barbara Grispini for the British Fashion Council with the support of the BFC’s Ambassador for Emerging Talent Sarah Mower.

The pop-up showroom is a strategic element of the British Fashion Council's support and mentoring scheme with the aim to promote London design internationally and secure new export business.

The venture to Hong Kong supports the China/Britain Fashion Alliance, a combined initiative between the BFC, the Beijing International Brand Management Centre and the China-Britain Business Council formed in July 2011 to promote British Fashion in China.
The Hong Kong showroom will be open for three days, 6th November – 8th November 2012 from 12-6pm at The Space Gallery, 210 Hollywood Road Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, +852 2361 1210.

LONDON show ROOMS Hong Kong is supported by UK Trade & Investment and part-financed by the European Union.
