Floating Fashion Gala of the Tankas
Co-organiser: Art for All

Designed to be distinct from traditional exhibition styles, The Floating Fashion Gala of the Tankas is a mobile fashion show, which gives a true representation of boat people who lack a static residence, to understand them from a new perspective. This presentation represents the concept of "conservation and succession", in order to help preserve the heritage of fishing culture and traditions in Hong Kong.

Models dressed like fishermen will be roaming through the "Fashion + Paper, Scissors and Rock" exhibition in Hong Kong Heritage Museum's Thematic Galleries 3 & 4. With salt-water songs as background music, models, both young and old, will wear a variety of outfits, such as traditional black plastic silk costumes for men and women, modern versions of gambiered Guangdong silk, and costumes designed as fishing nets, blending traditional handicrafts.

The show presents traditional fishermen's clothing and makes use of traditional fishermen's handicrafts and day-to-day fishing tools to design innovative costumes in order to showcase the fishermen's lives through a fashion show. The designs were provided by professional fashion designers, students from different disciplines, and older former fishermen, making everyone a designer and allowing fishermen to design their own fashions, bringing surprises to our audience.

Time 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Venue Thematic Galleries 3 & 4, 1/F
Enrolment Please meet outside Thematic Galleries 3 & 4, 1/F, 15 minutes before the fashion show starts
