About Emerging Design Talents

Emerging Design Talents, the annual design exhibition
organised by the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) and IVE (Lee Wai Lee), 
offers a platform for students to showcase their best work.

The 11-day event includes five large scale design shows and nearly 10 exhibitions at HKDI & IVE (LWL) and around Hong Kong. Presented by Fashion and Image Design Department, two catwalk shows  New Fashion Force and The Revolutionary Image of the New Generation will showcase selected graduates' fashion collections and styling. The music show Music in Motion 2019 and "Starnight Screening" by HKDI Digital Media will on the other hand feature a live music performance, short films and animation produced by students from Digital Music and Media, Film & Television and Creative Media programmes. Outside HKDI, a Jewellery design show 'The Mystic Stone' Jewellery & Accessories Catwalk will be held at k11 shopping mall, Tsim Sha Tsui, to present works from Jewellery and Image Product Design. Shows are open for RSVP, free admission. 

A fine selection of student works from various design disciplines will also be on exhibit. The major exhibition will open to public at HKDI & IVE (LWL) during 13 - 23 June, from 10am - 8pm. Audience may take the advantages to look at the students' creative works from over 20 programmes from Architecture, Interior and Product Design, Business Administration, Communication Design and Digital Media, Design Foundation Studies, Fashion and Image Design, and Information Technology at once. Five satellite exhibitions are also spreading across Hong Kong to tell a more in-depth and interactive story about our design students' works in other district.
