 [HKAS x A.N.G x City U EMBA]

The September ANG, in the form of HKAS x ANG  x CityU EMBA Forum, has been fully completed on 23 September. 

The forum was taking place physically in the CityU campus and the topic was “Strategic Innovation and Transformation in The Fashion Industry" . English is the language being used.

Guest speakers are the key stakeholders of the industry, covering the fields of design, manufacture and industrial development. They openly shared their experiences and insights.

As the opening, Ms Teresa Yang, Vice Chairman of Esquel Group, presented an excellent example of the concepts of sustainability, social responsibility, innovation and transformation that Esquel Group has been doing in the past couple decades.  

One impressive aspect is Esquel's project in Guilin, China, namely “Integral”. It is basing on the philosophy of Buddhist "Shi Ru (Ten Suchnesses )", which restores the land of a potholed mine to a factory that is full of greenery and integrate with nature. It proves that as long as doing it heartfully, to build a factory and to produce products are not equally meaning to go against the nature.

After the opening presentation, there came a panel discussion with several guests in addition to Ms. Yang. They are –

1. Moderator – Mr Dominic Cheng, Dominic is not only the General Manager of Yintak Intex Industries (Holdings) Limited, but also one of the Directors of Hong Kong Apparel Society

2. Guest speakers

- Mr Dorian Ho, Dorian is a famous fashion designer. He has been involved in many projects to nurture the next generation, the latest of which is the "Unique "Deep" Tailoring 2 Fashion Design Competition".

Heartfelt thanks to the guests, they have completed the events.
