Men‘s suits from Hong Kong are known globally for their quality and exceptional tailoring. To honour the tailors who endeavoured in this artisanal craft, The Mills, an iconic cultural landmark created by the Nan Fung Group, has collaborated with The Culturist to present the “Foreign Fabric Local Looks: A Hong Kong Suit Story” exhibition this November. The exhibition will explore the spirit of Hong Kong through our expertise and mastery of tailoring.
“Foreign Fabric Local Looks: A Hong Kong Suit Story” features interviews and works of world-renowned Hong Kong tailor brands and fashion designers such as Kan Tai-Keung and William Tang, and hosts a series of interactive talks and workshops including the Opening Talk “Tony & Tony”; ”The Language of Suits on Screen“ by renowned costume director Tina Liu, and a Cuff Links Workshop for visitors to have an inside look into the world of tailoring, a respected and well-known industry in Hong Kong.
The exhibition is designed to be reminiscent of tailor shops of the 1960s in the hopes of bringing visitors back to the golden generation of the local bespoke tailoring industry.
