SFT was part of the exciting Pop-up Spaces Exhibition at I.T. One Hysan Avenue organised by Fashion Asia from 13 – 25 Mar 2024. The exhibition showcased the exquisite designs of Ms Cheng Chau-hung, Quinn (BA, 2023), Ms Yu Hiu-tung, Harriet (BA, 2023) and Ms Choi Lok-yi, Joey (BA, 2023), who are all SFT alumni.

WHAT DO YOU SEE FIRST? by Ms Cheng Chau-hung, Quinn 

Quinn’s collection drew inspiration from the connection between psychological tests and our subconscious mind. Illusion images, commonly used in psychological tests, offer insights into our true selves as our subconscious interpretation of ambiguous stimuli unveils our mental state, personality, emotions, and inner conflict. The fabrics used in this collection feature a mix of low-twist merino wool and elastic yarns, woven to create an ultra-soft material and to offer a 3D visual effect with knitwear so that the colour and shape change along with the movement of the wearer.

THE MORPHO by Ms Yu Hiu-tung, Harriet

Inspired by the morpho butterflies, which represent faith and rebirth, the outfits in Harriet’s The Morpho encourage people to stay confident during challenges and live as free as this type of butterfly. The collection uses shimmering velvet fabric and tulle to feature the morpho wing print, which highlight the unique iridescent blue colour and delightful pattern of the wings. The velvet fabric imitates the butterfly’s appearance and offers a smooth and soft texture that is comfortable to wear and suitable for intimate wear. Handmade crochet trims and embellishments on the collar and arms further enhance the elegance of the look.

ARTIFICIAL LIGHT by Ms Choi Lok-yi, Joey

Inspired by light, which is fundamental to vision, Joey’s collection explores the authenticity of our world by examining the interplay between natural and artificial light. Through the use of strongly contrasting colours and exaggerated accessories, the collection contains irregular and chaotic lines reminiscent of the natural rays of light. These elements beautifully capture the unique interactions among light, shadow, and the human form. Ultimately, this collection aims to let everyone experience the captivating interaction with light and appreciate its beauty.
