My dear friend, Frankie Piper, founder of Visual vom, came to Hong Kong last Saturday and had a splendid time wondering around. One of the favorite boutiques was DayDream Nation, Daydream Nation is a Fashion Arts House founded in 2006, by brother and sister design duo Jing and Kay Wong. alongside their own collection of clothing and accessories, also showcasing local artists, indie bands, and running creative programs.
And here comes – Karen, Tsi Kwan Lau & Gabriel Leung photographers for DayDream Nation 2012 SS12 – “The show must go on”. Lau & Leung were born in Hong Kong; Lau studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design, while Leung finished his undergraduate Temple University. and he is currently lives and works in Glasgow, UK at the same time a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the Glasgow School of Art. The theme “The Show must go on” explains as “The End of the world is near, some people choose to procrastinate, some people choose to steal and break. Some people though, decided that the SHOW MUST GO ON!”. I terribly love the theme of it, and when I was flipping through the SS12 catalog, I couldn’t resist to take one home and Frankie, of cause, took one as well. We both love the colors and the style that they did. It is not just a fashion catalog, it is a storybook, each image has so much to tell. And now I so want to have my own “the show must go on”.
