There will be a small exhibition of my photos staged in Hong Kong at Shanghai Tang’s main (fashion) store in the Pedder Building, Central from 1 September 2003, initially for a month but extended for a few more weeks. 15 photos will be on display (chosen by Shanghai Tang from the hundreds on the website). The selected photos feature Miao in Guizhou and Guangxi in their festival costumes, plus a couple of landscapes. The exhibition is being held in conjunction with the launch of Shanghai Tang’s autumn and winter 2003 ready to wear collection, entitled "Miao Hinterland". According to them, my photos and website were ‘a huge inspiration’ for the collection!

If anyone happens to be in Hong Kong and in Central it might be worth calling into the Pedder Building. (See their website for the store locations. ) Do let me know what you think - especially the relationship between clothes and photos - as unfortunately I am not able to syncronise a visit to HK with the exhibition. I have not seen any preview of the "Miao Hinterland" collection although, of course, I know the photos which Shanghai Tang have selected. It would be interesting to see the collection based on the photos. I am not sure how immediately wearable they will be. Shanghai Tang have also asked to use photos from the web on a 'movie screen backdrop' for the collection launch party in Shanghai, PRC, on 12 September.

Forgive the self promotion - I have to admit to being quite excited if it all works out OK - as I wanted to share it with my friends on the community!
