Hong Kong's up-and-coming fashion designers will show off some of their latest creations at a charity event in London next month.

The Hong Kong Fashion Designer Showcase will be part of celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The event will feature designers including Daydream Nation, Injury, Kenaxleung, Zo-ee and Jaycow with some of them set to fly to the United Kingdom especially for the event.

While many of these designers taking part have held successful shows in New York, Shanghai, and Paris, some will be showing their collection in London for the first time.

Lawrence Lee, president of the Hong Kong Executives Club, said the catwalk event will showcase Hong Kong's creativity, vibrancy, and unique culture.

The charity fashion show has been organized jointly by the Hong Kong Executives Club and the Chinese Community Centre in London, and is supported by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London.

Christine Yau, chairwoman of the Chinese Community Centre and co-organizer, said: “It is the 37th year of the Chinese Community Centre in serving the local community. The center keeps a close link with charity organizations in Hong Kong and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to jointly host the charity event with HKEC and HKETO.”

A mix of London's business and fashion leaders are expected to attend the show on Tuesday and there will also be a question-and-answer session with some of the designers.

Five exclusive items on display on the night will be auctioned off after the show and will be altered to fit the successful bidders. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to support the work of the central London based Chinese Community Centre.

Priscilla To, director general of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London, said: “In Hong Kong, East and West mesh in many ways, making the city a thriving arts and cultural hub. Our cultural and creative industries employ more than 200,000 practitioners engaged in fields ranging from jewelry design to fashion, painting to publishing, interactive games to comics, advertising to architecture, and music production and digital media to performing arts.”
