CENTRESTAGE launched its annual fashion extravaganza last night (4 September) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The exclusive CENTRESTAGE ELITES opening event brought together renowned Hong Kong designer Anais Mak and her brand ANAIS JOURDEN, and New York-based Joseph Altuzarra and his brand ALTUZARRA, in a joint fashion show featuring their pre-spring 2020 collections, says a recent press release.
CENTRESTAGE is Asia’s premier fashion event, organized annually by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), offering a promotion platform for fashion brands and designers to showcase their talent, at the same time helping to strengthen Hong Kong’s position as one of Asia’s fashion capitals.
