About Us

HKDI Fashion Archive at HKDI was established in 2010 to support the use of real fashion products as teaching and learning tools.

The Fashion Archive (FA) was renovated in September 2017, boasting a newly renovated 360-m2 space that housed around 1,500 historical fashion items. Visitors can now access the iconoclastic fashion items to understand their design, culture and history via an interactive platform made available by the HKDI Fashion Archive.

FA aims to become the backbone of a ‘Fashion and Consumer Culture Research Centre’ where the use of real fashion products as teaching and learning tools will be applied in fashion design education. Through the wide-ranging real-life fashion resources available and the application of modern interactive technology, users will be provided immersive experiences in aesthetic and analytical appreciation, linear historical evidence and understanding of garment forms and construction.

Also, FA serves as a Centre of Excellence at HKDI, with a view to attracting thousands of visitors every year. The centre portrays HKDI as a dedicated and committed institution pursuing excellence in fashion design education and research and taking a leading role in fashion education in the region.
