Hong Kong native Tsz Fung Kwok aka Kay Kwok graduated this year from London College of Fashion. On tailoring in techy textiles like neoprene, he plays with chiaroscuro to produce optical illusions that vibrate across the silhouette. For his graduate collection, entitled "Fake eternity", shown at Victoria & Albert Museum in London, he presented a new perspective in Ancient Egyptian culture. Kay Kwok combined three main concepts in order to inspire these awesome digital prints. The relationship of the sphinx and sunlight, chemical reactions of mummies' bodies and their relationship to constellations, specifically lunar and solar eclipses. Neoprene was widely used on the collection because of its fleshy hand-feel. Despite claiming that "Fake eternity" was inspired by Egyptian culture, it is clear that Kay Kwok owes a great deal to the work that Thierry Mugler developed in the late 1980s. What separates the two of them, however, was the way in which the young designer used digital printing to generate spray paint patterns with moments of bold starburst zigzags, color grading, and tie dye effects. The collection also included solid black patent hats that brought to mind traditional raincoat caps. Created using 3D technology, the oversized hats contrasted with the sharp silhouettes of Kay Kwok’s suits and overcoats to create a playful effect. His unique concepts and designs for this collection landed him a nomination for the "Collection of The Year" award 2012. This is not the first nomination the designer received. He won the "Hong Kong Design Talent" award upon graduating from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2009, and was nominated for the "Top 15 Asian Fashion Designers" (in the student category) by WGSN. He also recently won the "International Fashion Contest" at the "Mittelmoda Fashion Awards". One word : fantastic.
