New creativity emerging in Hong KongA great celebration of Chinese design during the latest Fur Design Competition
On 7 January in Hong Kong 29 talented youngsters presented their creations during the annual Fur Design Competition. Promoted by the Young Executive Committee of the Hong Kong Fur Federation, the prime objective of the event is to promote the creativity of young Hong Kong designers and the “Fur by Hong Kong” brand which the youngsters represent.
The theme of this competition was “Winter Princess”. This year for the first time there were more than 200 applications and the committee selected the winners (in the final show) from among 269 entrants. The judges chose 18 designers in the “Full Fur Category” and 11 in the “Fur Combination Category”. After being selected the designers worked full out for two months together with the sponsor firms, creating unique and original pieces.
Finally on 7 January a total of seven awards were assigned for the two categories in the contest in which “My Favorite Fur Sketch” featured: the designs were judged by the fans of the contest’s Facebook page.
This year the competition was an outstanding success as regards both participation and the attention paid to it by local and international media, affirming the ascent of young creative talent in Hong Kong.
