The Institute of Textiles and Clothing (ITC) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) presented its MA Graduation Fashion Show in early August. A total of 144 fashion pieces from 24 collections were on display.


“Vessels” was adopted as the theme of this year’s Graduation Show, signifying fashion creations as a "container" in which the creativity of the designer can flourish. Our 24 graduates from the Master of Arts (MA) in Fashion and Textile Design gained inspiration from various areas of life, and put together their unique designs that are out of the ordinary – such as a collection demonstrating an imagined world of life after death, as well as a series of fashion pieces with a futuristic style.


Our future design talents also took sustainability into account when producing their pieces. To minimise the consumption of materials in the production process, advanced technologies such as three-dimensional design software (CLO 3D) were employed in order to utilise the fabrics and various materials to the maximum.


As one of the most outstanding innovative design courses in the Asia-Pacific region, PolyU’s MA Programme in Fashion and Textile Design takes pride in nurturing the next generation of fashion design talents for Hong Kong and beyond. Programme Leader Mr. Ryan Scott Houlton hopes that students can demonstrate their creative potential through this one-year practical course, which equips them with practical skillsets and enables them to unleash their innovative mindsets. He also looks forward to graduates becoming a new driving force and potential disrupters in the local fashion industry.
