initial partnered with the Hong Kong Design Institute to create sustainable new fashion with the incorporation of old labels. Students from the Department of Fashion and Design transformed the design of old labels and turned them into trendy fashion items.

The first runner up used the city landscape of Morocco as the theme and turned old labels into retro style dresses and totes.
The second runner up adopted "deformed" and "incomplete" as the design theme with the use of irregular fabrics to emphasize the design details, adding a layer of playfulness from "transformation" to the fashion items.
