2020Brand Story—Macao Original Fashion Exhibition I

In 2020, the Year of the Rat, everything begins anew and the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac repeats itself endlessly like the fashion industry. Brimming with inspirations and with unique taste and creativity, trend-setting fashion designers constantly cultivate appreciation and new ideas about fashion to the public.

 

While people pursue exquisite works, how much do they know about the story behind? Stories are yet to be explored behind the fashion pieces. How do designers illustrate the story with their work? With the cloth as the story’s outline and ornaments as the context, they connect all the specifics with needles and threads.

 

The Macao SAR government is committed to advancing the development of cultural and creative industries with many local original fashion brands fully prepared. Therefore, Macao Fashion Gallery (MFG) continues its fashion event this year, 2020 Brand Story – Macao Original Fashion Exhibition. MFG provides an exhibition venue for local original brands to showcase local designers’ talent to visitors through open call for brands, followed by objective evaluation and selection.

 

The exhibition will be divided into five phases, with one brand being displayed at each phase. Five selected brands, including Lexx Moda, Nega C., ZICS, FAITH & FEARLESS and NO.42, will be exhibited one after another. The first is Lexx Moda, a women’s shoe brand combining comfort and fashion, and it will be followed by the youthful and sweet Nega C., ZICS with black-white-gray architectural aesthetics, and the brand FAITH & FEARLESS which represents the street style. This event will be concluded by the mixed-style brand NO.42. The public can feel the unlimited possibilities of fashion after seeing five completely different brands. What’s more, all collections will be available for purchase. You will not go home empty-handed.

 

Brand:Lexx Moda

ThemeMonochrome

In this colorful and infinite universe, imagine yourself ata place where the design space is monochrome. What kind of thinking could it arouse? Could one get inner peace beyond the outside disturbance?

 

In this exhibition, the designer adopts the monochrome concept “black” as the theme, hoping to express her views on life from a perspective that is different from multi-colors: purity and static thinking.She also hopes to return to the essence of the universe and develop an attitude of inclusiveness. While putting aside diverse colors, the designer strives to bring the work closer to the essence of design to let people contemplate life and the world.

 

Black is the color of the vastand empty universe. From the perspective of the cosmos, black is the essence of the universe, that is, the true color of the universe. “Black” is accompanied by the “emptiness” that contains no media but is capable of encompassing everything. Carrying no negative connotations, it representsstatic thinking. Therefore, to those appreciating the works on display, the designer hopes to present her design concept from the best angle and express her cognition and perception of the world. As black makes other colors more vivid and gifts them the power of meditation, it may not even be considered a color. However, it is the original color of the universe.Hence when such a magical color is presented in front of us, is it possible that we come close to the realm of “being void of vanities” and become a person who can trace the essence of the world?

 

The designer fuses the monochrome “black” and the concept of “emptiness” in philosophy and isolates colors in a specific conceptual space to give each follower the sincerest interpretation, through whichthe designer can establish intimate contact with the audience and even future consumers from the inner heart.

 

In addition, the monochrome black stands for rigorousness, friendliness, profoundness, and substantiality. Having experienced the colors in the world, we return to the essence of the universe and obtain deep thinking as well as the uttermost peace of mind.

 

This is monochrome, another way to look at the world and express oneself.

Fashion Interaction— Guangzhou-Hong Kong-Macao-Shenzhen Creative Fashion Exhibition

Cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area have homologous culture, close kinship, similar folk customs and complementary advantages. The creation of a humanistic bay area is one of the most important cooperation projects of the area. With the increasingly frequent exchanges in the bay area and the joint formation of a new chapter, the cities in the area will jointly integrate the fashion industry, financial capital, industry chain and Internet resources of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao to jointly create a fashion name card for the Greater Bay Area.

 

In line with the implementation of national policies, the Macao SAR Government actively participates in the administrative policies for the development of the Greater Bay Area, promotes the integration of young people engaged in the cultural and creative industries into the construction of the bay area, and seizes opportunities to enrich its own development. The finale exhibition “Fashion Interaction—Guangzhou-Hong Kong-Macao-Shenzhen Creative Fashion Exhibition” of the Macao Fashion Gallery this year, brought together the outstanding works of cutting-edge fashion designers from the four central cities of the bay area—Guangzhou, Hong Kong,  Macao and Shenzhen, displaying the creative talents of contemporary young designers and creating a new fashion platform for exchanges, interaction and cohesion among the youth in the fashion industry from the four places, thus establishing a cornerstone for further development.

 

The exhibition featured the works of eight designers/teams, including (in no particular order): Coco Chi and Suiga Zhang from Guangzhou; Felix Tai and Jason Lee from Hong Kong; Jack Lam and Yaya Tam (as a team) and Eunice Chan and Gigi Wai (as a team) from Macao; Smile Xu and Esa Liang from Shenzhen. Each designer/team presented two representative creative costumes, a total of 16, allowing the audience to appreciate the unique styles of the designers from the four places in a short distance and feel the infinite design possibilities under the same cultural background.

 

Herein, the Macao Fashion Gallery especially acknowledges the generous support of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Fashion Industry Alliance as the co-organizer, and the Guangdong Association of Garment and Garment Article Industry, the Guangdong Fashion Designers Association and the Hong Kong Fashion Farm Foundation as the supporters, for the success of this exhibition.

The theme of exhibition is the nature. Heavy work pressure makes it difficult for every urban resident to breathe. In addition to shopping, people basically choose to leave their cities for a sightseeing tour. Even in winter, not a few people escape the cold by traveling to Thailand or other tropical areas. The designers hope to expand the imagination space of visitors through the setting and lead the public to return to the nature and relieve the tension.

2019 Brand Story—Macao Original Fashion Exhibition II

Brand:Lexx Moda Theme: HOLI-Festival of India

The design inspiration of this season’s products comes from the colorful HOLI, an Indian festival when people spray and paint varicolored powders on the streets to give blessings and in return, gain joy through it. The theme of this season’s products is advocating the idea of positively facing life, and bringing love and vitality to Lexx Moda’s works. This season’s product lines use the concept of the HOLI’s bright-colored powders as contrast. The actual demand is taken into consideration that fabrics for winter shoes are usually in dark colors so that painted leather that is close to the color of powders is utilized as lining materials. Black, white, and warm-color leather and cloth are used alternately as fabrics. In addition to making the products more attractive, it is hoped to use the effect of colorful powder to show the feelings of happiness and vivaciousness.

Brand:ZICS Theme:HUSTLE BUSTLE STUDIO

This season’s collection continues to implement the brand style. With the hope of finding fun in the fast-paced urban life, the designer especially uses striped fabric and the row-pleated method to express numerous working papers and tight schedules, brings vitality to the rigid urban life through irregular and layered tailoring, and displays a new season of spring/summer fashion collection. The layout of the exhibition hall is the extension of the costume creation idea, which turns the site into a corner of the studio, not an office of general stereotypes, but a place that brings a difference to the fast-paced urban life in a funny way; the large clock on the wall represents the rhythm of urban life; the notepaper pasted all over the wall and the featured wall at the back of the office desk can be used to record the work schedule and creative ideas at will.
