Taking advantage of Hong Kong's position as one of the fashion capitals of the world, various local and overseas fashion brands choose to launch their new products or look for collaborations here, as well as build their brand image in Asia.
 
A large variety of these products designed by local and global designers will be showcased at various Brands Collections Shows, Designers Collection Shows and International Fashion on Parade sessions. Hong Kong Fashion Week and World Boutique are ideal platforms for designers and brands to reach out to the Chinese mainland market and other international markets.
