Last saturday we showed love to 40 years of Hong Kong’s history: Sham Shui Po fabric market.
Barbara Wong contacted us to support her alongside with local fashion designers to stand for and participate to the revival project of the fabric market.
As a social innovation design project in association with the Applied Social Science in PolyU and the Architecture and Urban Planning Department from the Chinese University of HK, this project directly impact the creative industry in Hong Kong, especially fashion students, local designers and even more the hawkers.
So we went on Yen Chow Street in Sham Shui Po district, met with different hawkers, fashion students and had discussions. They shared with us their concerns about the demolition to build public housing and how the Government had not been clear about their relocation and seems only offering some compensation to hawkers licences holders.
Yet, the project is still going on and will help it out.
