KWK by Kay Kwok Chapter 4- PORTALS
KWK Chapter 4- Portals views the brand's ethos of transportation out of the mundane through a spiritual lens, exploring how through looking within and connecting with our authentic self-expression, we arrive at a new place of vivid color and exaggeration. Freedom of expression and being liberated to live in alignment with who we are as an individual is fundamental to the designer's worldview and the understanding of the nuance and sensitivities of visual messages and storytelling upon the catwalk. Spring/Summer 24 takes us on a journey out of the dark, away from dullness and solemnity, escaping the pressure and heaviness from above, to arrive into the abundance and joy of the light. Buddhist iconography graphic depictions of the beauty of nature expressed through flowers, and artwork inspired by the stars and cosmos, are blended to create a lucid colour-scape. Evocative and intense, this season has been designed to imbue a sense of pleasure and ecstasy, quasi-religious in nature – and enlightenment.
The song in the finale pays tribute to Kay’s dear artist friend Coco Lee (1975-2023) who departed to a new world earlier this year. Coco was the first Chinese singer to perform at the Oscars, and the first Chinese singer to perform at an NBA game. Coco and Kay started to creatively collaborate in 2018, culminating in Kay directing the costume design for her world tour in 2019.

Etro Nowhere - Spring Summer 2024 Women's fashion show
A place that is not there, that doesn’t exist. A place made possible by the imagination in which, for example, columns that recall the remains of a temple emerge not in the middle of the forest but in the heart of the city where vestiges of a curious civilization has suddenly resurfaced.
Nowhere is the elsewhere that becomes tangible and with it, the overthrow of every rule, of every rational thought, of every logical consequentiality. Nowhere is a metaphor for fashion; a land in which everything is allowed because the combinations of elements are virtually endless.
Alberta Ferretti Spring Summer 2024 Fashion Show
A vision of lightness and movement; a definitive affirmation femininity that is never static.
