2020 Intimate and Activewear Exhibition: Designers in Progress
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) will hold the 2020 Intimate & Activewear Exhibition ‘Designers in progress’ from 23 to 27 November 2020 at the Fashion Gallery, showcasing the creativity and design talents of 12 graduating students.
The 12 collections of six outfits put on show were designed and produced by students majoring in Intimate Apparel and Activewear under the University’s Institute of Textiles and Clothing (ITC), with raw materials sponsored by intimate apparel manufacturers and suppliers. The chief sponsor this year is Nobeemas, a well-known high-end lingerie brand of Melaydoti.
Prof. Wing-tak Wong, Dean of Faculty of Applied Science and Textiles, PolyU, expressed his gratitude to the industry for its generous support to the Show which enhanced the diversity of students’ learning experience.
Prof. Jintu Fan, Chair Professor and Head of ITC, remarked that the students have overcome enormous challenges in completing their collections as the university was closed for a few months due to COVID-19 pandemic. Our students have fully demonstrated their innovation, talent and passion for intimate apparel and activewear design in the exhibition.
Ms Angie Lau, Chairman of Hong Kong Intimate Apparel Industries’ Association and the CEO of Clover Group International Limited, stressed that HKIAIA would continue to support and nurture the younger generation for the continuous development of the industry.
