Carine Roitfeld, stylist and editor, is teaming up to support Adrian Cheng, a cultural entrepreneur. The major fashion exhibition “Savoir-Faire” will be held in Hong Kong from December 13 through February 14.

“Savoir-Faire” will be Asia’s first exhibition featuring multiple brands. It will examine the world of fashion craftsmanship and preserve atelier traditions. The exhibition will feature haute couture and pret a porter by brands such as Givenchy, Christian Dior and Chanel.

The exhibition at Hong Kong’s K11 Art and Cultural Centre will be organized thematically. This allows visitors to discover unique pieces of couture craftsmanship and observe firsthand the hours and dedication required by each Maison to create each piece.
