Hong Kong to set up fashion hub in Sham Shui Po
Yau said the district has a long history in the trading of fabric and garments and is a popular destination for local fashion and design enthusiasts, according to a report on a Hong Kong Government portal.
The project will have 4,300 square meters of gross floor area in a five-story commercial building on Tung Chau Street and will be run by the Hong Kong Design Centre.
The hub, scheduled to come up by 2023, will provide new designers a space to refine their skills and creative abilities and also to showcase their design products and stage designs.
Facilities will include a design gallery and fashion showcase, fashion production workshops, working areas, stage and seminar spaces, an incubation centre, a design library and a material library. An open space will also be made available where the public can go to look for fashion and items. (DS)
