Electric sekki presents
London Show Rooms in Hong Kong
After a week-long stint in Hong Kong, the talented twelve British-based designers of The British Fashion Council's London Show Rooms initiative are heading back to the UK tonight. Electric sekki is proud to have been involved in such a unique event both last year and again this year--after much thought and planning, we are finally in the home-stretch today! Yesterday was the last day that the showroom was open for viewings, and it was a full day of interviews with press and discussions about hotpot recommendations and strange local foods. It all ended with a cocktail party in the evening, then we were off to an evening of celebrations and congratulations. If you missed out, here are some snaps from the day and make sure to check-in here at the blog throughout next week to read our interviews with the designers; we promise lots of tidbits, including stories about projects for Margiela, faking a move to the Isle of Harris, anecdotes about a childhood spent on a farm and lots more.
We start off on Wednesday night's ELLE Style Awards 2012, at which actress Kathy Chow wore a Peter Pilotto dress straight from the London Show Rooms, styled by celebrity stylist Ricky Kwok. Stunning!
And Kathy Chow styled by celebrity stylist Ricky Kwok again, this time in Jonathan Saunders SS13, also straight from the London SHOW Rooms.
Later that evening, the crew celebrated London Show Rooms' patricipant Jonathan Saunders' birthday with local celebrity model/pastry queen, Amanda S, who chose a SS13 Peter Pilotto outfit for the evening.
