The Fashion Atelier Certificate Programme (FACP)
Mission & Vision
Refined and sophisticated technical knowhow are fundamental qualities consistently found in TOP International Fashion Brands, with much emphasis placed on finesse of cut and proportion, together with attention to high quality design details. To enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness as a fashion design hub, it is essential for the local fashion practitioners to be on par with the leading international design professionals and equip themselves with top of the ladder skills in cutting and craftsmanship for making high quality designs and clothing best in fit, flair and aesthetic styles. The Fashion Atelier Certificate Programme (FACP) is a series of practical training programmes to be conducted by international top Masters with the aim to foster and broaden the local fashion industry’s awareness and skills, as well as to cultivate current and future generations of fashion creators, thereby upgrading the Hong Kong Fashion Design Industry onto new heights.

JUXTAPOSED 2022 Fashion Meta
時尚對比 2022 時裝元宇宙
Organised by the Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association, the Juxtaposed projects received phenomenal successes in 2017, 2018 and 2020. This year, with CreateHK of the HKSAR government, as the lead sponsor, Juxtaposed 2022 Fashion Meta led Hong Kong’s fashion scene to new heights, as part of the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
Exploring possibilities between fashion and different mediums have always been at the core of the annual event that brings together contrasting elements for a chance at the new; sparking inspirations for different industries and creative talents. As technology and the ecology of the metaverse change with every passing day, the ever-morphing abnormality is the new normal in the world we live in today. And fashion – an industry so woven into the fabric of our everyday life, has seen enormous changes under the influence of virtual technology and the metaverse.
Four Exhibition Zones
High-Impact Visuals Inspiring Fashion & Imagination
From 10th to 23rd June 2022, the space at 59 Queen’s Road Central led visitors on a journey around 4 thematic exhibition zones of the “Juxtaposed 2022 FASHION META”, where 70 local fashion designers across different generations and styles expressed their narratives on innovation and traditional craftsmanship.
Unique in aesthetics, these fine-crafted installations were inspired by the four major fashion capitals. Every exhibit reinterpreted the interesting contrasts between the cultural identities of these cities and the work itself. Besides tangible exhibits, a curation of virtual images was in store to guide visitors through a synchronised VR fashion experience – one that invited us to rethink how the newest technology may stimulate our creativity and shape the new identity of fashion in the 21st century by combining state-of-the-art technology and traditional craftsmanship.
Pop-Up Shop & Hong Kong’s first NFT fashion collection
The fortnightly event also included a pop-up shop showcasing the ready-to-wear collections by participating designers. Visitors could order online at the shop to experience how the exhibition and online shopping are seamlessly merged for a whole new experience that surpassed the boundary of the exhibition. Juxtaposed 2022 FASHION META also tapped into the latest encryption technology and worked with Artify to launch Hong Kong’s first fashion designer NFT collection. Awe-inspiring work by 12 designers marched into the global virtual market, seamlessly bringing together reality and virtuality.
Hong Kong's first full-service virtual fashion show
In collaboration with local innovative and high-tech production teams, the occasion adopted a state-of-the-art patented technology to host the city’s first 360-degree virtual fashion show at the exhibition venue.
Surrounded by LED screens, the guests immersed themselves between the actual exhibits and a virtual universe. The perfect fusion inspired a multi-faceted look at the creative essences of our designers and the real versus virtual possibilities of fashion.
Besides watching an unconventional fashion show within the exhibition, the audience could also participate in it. Powered by patented technology, visitors could have their virtual avatars generated in real-time to “try on” the wearable art pieces by various designers in the imaginative realm of “JuxtaVerse”. This experience did not only open the door into Hong Kong’s fashion industry; it also unlocked a mind-blowing voyage around a whole new spectrum – one that we call a fashion meta-universe.
