I have known David while he was responsible for teaching fashion design at Caritas Bianchi. Since I am the External Academic Advisor of the school, we had a lot of scholarly exchange. During our acquaintance, David gives me a sentiment that he is a person that speaks his mind. He once told me that he would go back to study one day, and after seeking lengthy advices from me in regard to the direction of his study then came the announcement of his departure from his teaching career after accomplishing one of their college fashion shows that he would commence his study in the United Kingdom.
I always know that writing a book on fashion was David’s biggest wish and in this regard, he had approached me several times for advices. David had this idea years’ ago and then he called me up from out of the blue on 2 April this year from England asking me to help write a Preface. Believing that it takes him 2 years to prepare his book, it should be well constructed, insightful and educational, coming from his background. Seemingly there is no similar source book which contains a full comprehensive description of what fashion is to be initiated in Hong Kong. Besides, it can be a good reference for those who have passion in fashion.
Coming from his background as a fashion design educator, and the lengthy discussions that I recalled, I can see that the book not only shows his professionalism; but as well conveys a message that fashion can do more “out of the box”; and also link up to social responsibility and not restricted to one’s interest but more. I understand that his book has compiled a lot of his students’ work; which also reflects that their relationships, namely trust, respect and caring to their former teacher, are genuinely cohesive.
I hope those who buy this book can enjoy reading it.
