Hong Kong – Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing students from Raffles Jakarta went on a field trip to Hong Kong to visit Hong Kong Fashion Week. This was an excellent opportunity for design and marketing students to see the latest fashion and textile trends. Students attended many runways shows as well as talk shows related to the fashion industry. After the runway shows, they were able to see the designs which had been showcased on the runway, to understand the design, construction, and use of materials. The talk show about fashion sustainability gave them insight into the issues relating to the fashion industry and role of designers to curb those issues. Students interacted with the retailers and wholesalers displaying their garments, accessories, and fabrics. Later, the group went to Guangzhou, which is one of the largest textile trading areas in China, to source fabrics, trimmings, and accessories for their upcoming mini collection. This field trip provided first-hand knowledge to Raffles students about how the fashion industry operates, from design, sourcing, manufacturing, and marketing.
