Sew On Studio
Create Fashion Together with Love
最近獲得香港理工大學企業發展院的支持，Winsome與一群香港資深時裝從業者創立了「裳樂匯坊」（Sew On Studio），希望藉此平台協助新晉時裝設計師，哉培更多本地時裝設計人才，促進香港的時裝設計業的發展。
In the last century, the immigrant from Mainland China was being the support of labour in building Hong Kong economy. The newly arrived ladies and families had a lot of opportunity working in the Garment Industry as the garment makers which could increase their monthly income and improve their life quality. In the 90s, most of the manufacturers relocated in China which greatly reduced the career post. Their valuable skill and techniques were then wasted.
The garment industries actually do not wholly withdraw from Hong Kong. They reform from manufacturers to a vertical set-up enterprise (i.e. from product design to manufacture, and even brand development) which can ‘maintain’ their headquarters in Hong Kong.
And the story of Sew On Studio…
It is no easy task to become a fashion designer and launch own fashion brand and business in Hong Kong.
Those who would like to enter the industry are often deterred by lack of space, resources and technical support. They are not able to produce small quantities or have no appropriate marketing channels.
The initiator of Sew On Studio, Winsome Lok is a local designer, is often faced with many difficulties that have to be solved on her own. Thanks to the guidance and help offered by experienced practitioners, she was finally able to build her own business today.
According to this purpose, we developed this fashion product realization studio and co-work with TML who employed the young elderly supervisors and staff in garment making.
Therefore a group of youth fashion designers can use our studio to be a workshop to create their products and cooperate with the seniors sewing expertise and workers to realize their own design. The products can then be shown in our exhibitions or shows. Also to build up the brand of “Made in Hong Kong” cooperate to create the new product design and providing the new opportunities.
We also have a programme which funded by GoodSeed (SIE Fund) for design special function clothing for the elderly. And provide free services of the clothing alteration, therefore, the users have a more convenient and comfortable garment which can increase their social communication and self-respect.
