Hair stylist Kim Robinson of Le Salon has teamed up with the Swank Shop to hold a workshop next week intending to show women how to wear athletic clothes and still look chic. Members and guests of the Hong Kong Country Club set can go along there on Tuesday afternoon where Robinson, his make-up artists and fashion consultants will outline how to look impeccable on or off the courts. Trunk trend Gianfranco Ferre had to cancel, but the show will go on. Thursday sees a comprehensive collection of the autumn/winter line of the eminent Italian designer, now concentrating on his signature label after leaving Christian Dior in 1996. There will be two trunk shows at the Grand Hyatt's Drawing Room, over lunch and again for afternoon tea, an increasingly popular means to showcase new collections. Fashion retailers believe showing the clothes in an appealing, user-friendly way, and allowing customers to order on-the-spot, often has the desired result. Art of Lotus The popular Euro-Asian line of jewellery and collectables, Lotus Arts de Vivre, returns to Hong Kong for a four-day exhibition at the China Club. The Art of Oriental Living exhibition runs from Tuesday until Friday and features Orient-Occident fusions such as a gold and turquoise pendant against Peking glass beads, cutlery adorned with silver lotus flowers and sugarpalm seeds hand-crafted into exotic evening bags. The line is created by European royal Luciana Pignatelli with German aristocraft Rolf von Buren, his Thai wife Helen and their son Sri. Pieces are regularly bought by royalty and celebrities.
