The Hong Kong Design Institute is honoured to display a magnificent collection of contemporary fashion and historical costume designs at the In Praise of Silk: Fashion from China National Silk Museum Across Time exhibition. The exhibition is a tribute to “mulberry silk”, the fibre that made China famous since historical times. A glimpse into the evolution of the Chinese fashion and silk culture is offered by the collaboration between HKDI’s Department of Fashion and Image Design (FID) and the China National Silk Museum, the world’s largest silk museum. The Museum collection will also feature multimedia installations, an exploration into the production of silk with a weaving loom, photographs, and more.
The spacious venue will also display stunning designs from seasoned couturier Barney Cheng, as well as a dazzling selection from renowned fashion label Blanc de Chine. A collection of cheongsam from Cheongsam Connect will also be featured in the exhibition.
