Indian fashion designer Rocky S experiences Hong Kong's trendy and fashionable side
Fashion designer Rocky S recently visited Hong Kong and experienced the trendy and fashionable side of the city. The diversified environment and culture captivated his heart! During his stay in HK; Rocky met up with various local designers to exchange views and opinions on fashion and art. Synergy sparkled up from every encounter he had with the local art group.

"The crowd was amazing and I was very excited to see clothing created by young Hong Kong designers," Rocky said after attending the NARS 3.1 Philip Lim Press Launch Fashion Show at Hong Kong Fashion Week. He enjoyed meeting up-and-coming Hong Kong designer Chailie Ho at her design studio in PMQ on Hollywood Road, where they chatted about her designs, fabrics, and art.

He said he was very impressed by the "quality, craftsmanship and femininity of her designs", and especially liked fabrics that featured her hand-drawn water colour sketches. He thought PMQ was a cool 'arts hub' and marvelled at a display of 1000 panda sculptures. During his four day long visit from 8th -11th July, Rocky also visited local designer Luke Yeung's shop on Moon Street, in Wanchai, where he purchased several interesting accessory items.

After strolling around the area visiting designer boutiques, he said: "This is what people want to see. It's something different from the run-of-the-mill big brands. I really like it."

On the Kowloon side of the city, Rocky visited fabric shops in Sham Shui Po and bought some suede trim. "I'd love to come back and spend more time exploring this area," he said.

En route, he sampled sweet tofu dishes at the famous street stall A1 Tofu Company and savoury food at renowned Bao Dian Liao Lee. He particularly liked the deep-fried tofu with spicy chili. On top of all the above adventures, Rocky had a great time at a party especially organized for him at the fashionable Armani Prive in Central's business district, where he mingled with media and designer guests.

To conclude the overwhelming journey, Rocky relaxed over a vegetarian lunch and ambled through Stanley market before his departure. He said, "Stanley is like being transported to somewhere like southern France, and shows yet another amazing side to Hong Kong. I love this city!"
