NEW YORK, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- Four leading Hong Kong designers unveiled their latest collections at a group runway show on Friday during New York Fashion Week (NYFW).

Led by Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), three of Hong Kong-based fashion brands focusing on enriching women's fashion tastes and choices were featured at the show.

Designer Mountain Yam set up 112 mountianyam in 2015. He told Xinhua that he wanted to help urbanites with a hectic living tempo find an outlet for their mental stress through his new collection titled Hide & Seek.

"In human society, people tend to hide in their comfort zone when facing problems, and most of the people run away or find excuses," Yam said. "But they need to express their real thoughts and true self. Don't hide away."

Unlike the young designer, founder of brand ANVEGLOSA Annette Chan paid her respect to tradition through her latest collection themed Salute to Fashion, as inspired by the good old days of the industry.

The collection features a combination of lambskin leather, silk, fabrics and embroidery to highlight feminine silhouettes, a review of the fashion quintessence from the 1920s to the present day.

Completing the lineup of the show is the collection of "ELIZABETH, WATCH THE STARS" of brand HEAVEN PLEASE+, which is co-founded by Yi Chan and Lary Cheung.

The new collection demonstrates the two designers' strength of integrating their understanding of art, music and literature into fashion design.

NYFW is a semi-annual series of events. It is one of the major fashion weeks in the world, collectively known as the "Big Four," along with those in Paris, London and Milan.
