As those who know me well know full well, being fashionable just is not my style. (E.g., I still regularly wear an old school scarf that is now decades old and a couple of sweaters that date to my undergraduate days!) Consequently, this week's Photo Hunt theme was one that I found more difficult to come up with photos for than most -- for even while Hong Kong most definitely has its share of fashionable folks (and bona fide fashion victims) as well stores selling high fashion goods, the fact of the matter is that this is one section of the Big Lychee that I am pretty content to not be a part of.
Alternatively, I also think it safe to say that I am one of those people who makes more than her fair share of visits to museums -- and this being fashion-loving Hong Kong, the fashion and museum worlds do meld on occasion. More specifically, the mega show at the Hong Kong Museum of Art in 2009 was Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation -- an exhibition of selections from the Fondation Louis Vuitton pour la Création collection that included artworks by such as Andreas Gursky, Gilbert and George, Takashi Murakami and Cao Fei -- while in 2010, the Hong Kong Museum of History's The Evergreen Classic special exhibition took a look at the qipao (AKA cheongsam), the Chinese dress that, among other things, is a major visual element in Wong Kar Wai's In the Mood for Love.
Incidentally, the Louis Vuitton flagship store here in Hong Kong has a space for rotating art exhibitions within it. However, I have to admit that I've never been in it -- this not least because whenever I pass that store, I actually see people having to wait in line to enter it!
