Gallery: Fashion World Talent Awards semifinal winners
The Fashion World Talent Awards was whittled down to 18 finalists after a cutthroat showdown at last week’s Hong Kong Fashion Week.
For the semifinals, 30 neophyte fashion designers, stylists and fashion photographers had to team up in groups of three. The teams were then given two weeks to turn around a four-outfit collection based on a historic figure of the past century.
Inspirations ran the gamut, from Mao Zedong to Margaret Thatcher, Mickey Mouse to Tim Burton. Check out the gallery above for a showcase of the winning looks.
Four styling teams and six individual contestants will go head to head at the Fashion World Talent Awards finals on March 19.
