find your thread in hong kong’s techstyle story.
when nan fung textile company first started weaving in the 1950s, cloth was the most important raw material. in today’s globalised fashion industry, the finished garment is one element in the complex, high-tech pursuit of making fashion. talent and creativity are the commodities in demand: talent for ideas, design and reaching consumers through brand and story. drawing on over half a century in the industry, the mills, a groundbreaking project from the nan fung group, recognises that today talent is the raw material that matters. it must be nurtured and developed in the same way that cotton must be woven into fine cloth. to that end, the mills, in the same building it has worked in for the past 50 years, provides aspiring designers, entrepreneurs, and fashion technologists with the tools, the know-how and the space to make a truly modern, global fashion business, through collaborations with other institutions, exhibitions, mentorship programs with skilled artisans and a cutting-edge fabrication lab.
these are the mills of the 21st century.
