The festival will feature Paris-based fashion diva Sophie Hong, who will present her silk design to the city she is indebted to for her success.
"My encounter with Xiangyun silk started with a piece of cloth I came across at a Chinese emporium here in Hong Kong," Hong recalled prior to her show, which opens tomorrow at Midtown in Causeway Bay.
"This show has gone around the world but it is not a fashion show, but one that promotes Chinese cultural education and aesthetics."
Xiangyun silk, she said, was made of natural minerals and plants dating as far back as the Ming Dynasty.
