This year theme surrounds the iconic HK Red-White-Blue element and the traditional Chinese Lucky Coin often patternized on old tile floors, gates, lai see packets and fung shui charms to symbolize prosperity and good fortune. Students must use the Chinese Lucky Coin cotton fabric and mix-n-match it with denim to create unique Cheongsam-and-Tang-jacket inspired futuristic street fashion that vibrates with youth and individuality.
