About Knit Voyage

Knitting is a very specific skill being used widely in the international fashion industry.

Hong Kong has been famous for this technique for decades.

Knitting involves innovation and craftsmanship and is a specialised subject in fashion education.

Organised by Knitwear Innovation and Design Society and funded by CreateHK,

“Knit Voyage” is a project aims to provide a free platform for young designers to gain exposure

and manufacturing support and at the same time promote avant-garde knitwear design

and manufacturing skills to the fashion sector and general public.

針織在現今國際時裝業界中被廣泛使用,香港過去數十年亦憑藉這種技術聞名於世。

作為一門集結創新與工藝於一身的技術,針織亦已成為時裝設計教育中一門專業的課程。

由毛織創新及設計協會主辦、CreateHK資助的「Knit Voyage」,

旨在為年輕設計師提供一個免費平台,讓他們可增加曝光率,

令更多人認識他們製作的作品之餘,同時將更多新穎前衛的針織設計品和製作技術,

一一呈現公眾眼前。
