Overall Grand Award
Venus Tsang Cheuk-iu
The term “Toumei Ningen” represents people who have a contradictory personality. Venus’ collection features black and white as main colours with multiple layers. She wanted to bring out the effect of the black in the white and vice versa to reflect people with both introvert and extrovert personality traits.
