Fashion is always one step ahead of the season. Although there's still a chill in the air, IFC held its 'HOT Spring' 2004 fashion show last week, featuring the latest looks for spring and summer by seven cool brands at the new shopping landmark. Vivienne Tam, Escada, Valentino, Ermenegildo Zegna, Hugo Boss and Anteprima strutted their stuff. The inaugural fashion show and cocktail reception attracted more than 250 guests, including novelist Eunice Lam, Jean Wong, Shirley Li and Wendy Kwok (wife of Raymond Kwok, the managing director of Sun Hung Kai Properties). Designers Dorian Ho and Benny Yeung were there with a watchful eye, as were actor Michael Wong and model wife Janet Ma, Stephen Chau (boss of Starz People modelling agency) and model wife Rebecca Tong. Also sharing the limelight were fashion icons Kai-bong Chau and wife Brenda (in bright red), Metro Radio boss Kam Kwok-leung, Charles Yang with his mother, Lucy, and father-to-be Ivan Ting (son of legislator Kenneth Ting Woo-shou) with wife Angie Ho. A 'HOT Looks For Her' spring/summer display is being held at the Oval Atrium until Monday.
