Hong Kong’s K11 MUSEA has been curating immersive experiences that combine art, culture, nature, and commerce for its visitors since opening its doors in 2019. Collaborating with the renowned Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) from London, K11 MUSEA will host the “The Love of Couture: Artisanship in Fashion Beyond Time” exhibition at its Art and Culture Centre this December.
The fashion and couture-driven exhibit will showcase six up-and-coming East Asian designers, each presenting bespoke pieces that derived inspiration from the designers’ cultural heritage as well as V&A’s notorious historical fashion archives. The lineup consists of LVMH Prize 2022 finalist Ryunosuke Okazaki and semifinalist Yueqi Qi, couturier Tomo Koizumi, red-carpet creative genius Sohee Park, Prestige 40 Under 40 honoree Celine Kwan and avant-garde designer Sensen Lii of Windowsen.
Aside from the vanguard of emerging designers, William Chang Suk-ping - the notable production and customer designer for Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love - will be heading the production design for the exhibition.
Showing December 8 to January 29, 2023, the exhibition can be viewed at K11 MUSEA’s Art & Cultural Centre, located on the sixth floor of the mall.
