OVERSEAS STUDY TOUR

SWEDEN STUDY TOUR (By Invitation Only)

Jun 2023 @ Stockholm & Borås

Sweden is internationally known for design and fashion. It was one of the countries with the highest spending on clothing in Europe. Being Sweden’s capital and largest city, Stockholm is home of some famous brands like H&M, Acne, Tiger of Sweden, J. Lindeberg, Filippa K, Nudie Jeans, and the latest one WearAndSmile, highly praised for its inimitable styles and ecological fabric. While for Borås in South Sweden, which is widely known for being a textile city, it is home to worldwide brands and also  the prestigious Swedish School of Textiles. The charm of Swedish Fashion fits perfectly into Fashion Summit (HK). An intelligent trip to Sweden allows us to embrace the rhythm of Swedish fashion culture, history, education and metropolitan design.

During summer in Stockholm, there are series of exhibitions and other events for the benefit and interest to both fashion professionals and the public. Fashion Summit (HK) invited Hong Kong fashion designers, fashion industrialists and representatives of NGOs to form a Hong Kong Delegation to go visiting Sweden, Swedish brands and fashion associations, and also to participate those fashion events in June 2023.
