Eddie Lau Fashion Exhibition : Heritage Museum – Hong Kong

I was really hoping to write something about the Bruce Lee exhibition at the Heritage Museum, a fascinating worthy must-see exhibition about the life of the local legend. But, alas, no photography is allowed inside, so you’ll have to go see it yourself. What I was able to capture after the Bruce Lee exhibition was the nearby Eddie Lau exhibition featuring a local fashion designer featuring his creations.

Here’s a bit from the official website :

Eddie Lau is a legendary figure in the world of Hong Kong fashion. From humble beginnings, he went to London to study fashion design in the early 1970s and, after graduating, was invited to participate in Hong Kong Ready-to-Wear Festival, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, and a premier fashion show in London. Through great determination and hard work, Eddie established an international reputation that also brought recognition for Hong Kong. But he has always been more than just a fashion designer: famously creating the "ever-changing Anita Mui", he pioneered the idea of image design in the local music and entertainment world.

We extend our sincere thanks to Eddie Lau for his generous donation of his archive, including fashion designs, stage costumes, sketches and photographs, and to his friends and other organisations for their support in making this exhibition a success. Exhibits include “EDDIE LAU – East is Red” and “KAI” collections, uniforms for Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair, as well as haute couture for celebrities such as Pak Suet-sin, Michelle Yeoh, Liza Wang and Eunice Lam. The exhibition showcases a collection of stage costumes created for Anita Mui and concert outfits worn by Roman Tam, Denise Ho and William So, while other highlights include many photographs, news clippings and video records of interviews and a comprehensive review of Eddie’s designs extending from 1962 to 2012. Constituting a major fashion design collection of the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, these exhibits will let visitors know our amazing local fashion design scene and enjoy the collective memory of Cantopop, but also to understand the dedication of Hong Kong people to getting on in life – a spirit embodied in Eddie Lau.

There’s not much I can really say of all these, as I know absolutely nothing about fashion. So I’ll let you just make an impression through the photos…

Not too sure you’ll get much of Eddie Lau if you’re not a fashion fanatic but you’ll probably love the Bruce Lee exhibition. Go visit.
