Ms. Bella Chhoa, Director -- Leasing and Management of Hang Lung Properties, says, "In addition to continuously introducing flagship stores of international fashion brands and specialty shops, we have also been broadening our tenant mix and constantly bringing excitement to our customers through various events and pop-up stores with different themes. As customers enjoy a broad spectrum of new brands and the gastronomic experiences, we are widening their exposure and knowledge in different areas while offering them a one-stop shopping experience."
Fashion Walk takes leading edge when it comes to launching captivating pop-up stores. An impressive portfolio of unique pop-up stores previously held includes "INCREDIBLE X Mickey Mouse X Red A" concept store, the world's first "Givenchy #ThisIsNotWhatYouThink" pop-up store, and "IWC X Urban Coffee Roaster" pop-up coffee shop just to name a few. All projects received high acclamation. Bella continues, "Our collaboration with Asian Gold to launch the pop-up twin stores aims at bringing out different themes at two spaces at Fashion Walk, which guarantees to offer customers a one-of-a-kind experience."
In contrast to conventional pop-up stores, "In the Name of Summer" takes form as twin stores at Fashion Walk. Two spaces are created; one showcases weekly art exhibitions, while the other one offers retail service from multi-brands for customers. The idea is to surprise customers with a fruitful and in-depth exploration.
Mr. Phillip GOLD, the founder of Asian Gold, says, "Frankly speaking, I am an avid customer of Fashion Walk. Apart from being recognized for offering a vast selection of international fashion and lifestyle brands, the pop-up stores that Fashion Walk has had from time to time impressed me a lot too. These often inspire me with creative ideas. The vision of Asian Gold is to promote lifestyle immersed by art and fashion, which closely aligns with the commitment of Fashion Walk to assimilate high quality lifestyle experiences. When the concept of "In the Name of Summer" project was conceived, Fashion Walk is on my top priority. This summer, Asian Gold and Fashion Walk join forces to launch "In the Name of Summer" pop-up twin stores in order to create a platform where fashion and art come together for consumers to appreciate the aesthetics of design and commerce in one single place."
