Harrison Wong Exclusive NYFW Designer Interview
NYFW Show: Harrison Wong
Date: February 9, 2017
Production: HKTDC (Hong Kong Trade Development Council)
What was your inspiration this season?
The collection is called Gradations. The inspiration behind the collection is from the artwork of Mark Rothko. You will see a lot of radiant colors. It’s not only about the print, but because of the textures, patterns, and color changes.
What’s the difference this season compared to last years season?
This season I also bring women’s wear.
What’s the process like for selecting fabrics?
It is a lot of work because I have a lot of texts for the fabrics. Like I have a fabric that goes from wool to velvet. Sometimes I like to try new things.
Was there someone in your family into fashion or is this a passion of yours?
It’s a passion of mine.
What demographic population do you cater to?
What is up next for the Harrison Wong Collection?
Following NYFW, the goal is to attract some buyers.
