Last Friday night saw the return of SEAMS – AISHK’s annual charity fashion show, run in the support of Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF). CNCF is committed to helping relieve child poverty in Vietnam and Mongolia, and to giving children the right to a safe childhood, with good health-care and a decent education.
Titled as SEAMS: Transience, our theme was inspired by the movement and theatrics of a dreamlike wonderland. While the theme allowed students to dive deep into their imagination with limitless boundaries, we were unfortunately constrained by the reality of a global pandemic. Yet, our core team of senior students did not give up, in spite of the uncertain circumstance, and managed to put together the first ever online, student run fashion show. The night was not only a showcase of the fashion designers but also models, make-up artists, videographers, DJs, musicians, dancers and more.
SEAMS 2020 showcased 40 student designs and sponsor garments with the help of over 70 students being involved in the show. The team is proud to announce that over over 350 viewers tuned in to watch our show and HK$37,000 was raised for CNCF. The donation page will still be open for those of you who would like to support CNCF : GiveLively. Please note that this site operates with USD, therefore, the amount donated will be in USD (not HKD).

The show wouldn’t have been possible without the endless support from the students and staff. We thank all designers, models, performers and volunteers for their involvement, Mr Stapleton and the Performing Arts department for letting us use their facilities, Mrs Manning and her team for being so flexible with our bookings, Ms McNamara and Ms Ng for their help with promotion and the renting of filming equipment, Mr Hemphill and Mr West for their tremendous support along the way, and of course Ms Kelly and Ms Carini for making the show what it is – without you, we would have been lost, thank you for putting the students first, we are forever grateful.
