Since starting his atelier Yenrabi in 1993, Cheng's extravagant yet simple style can be seen not only on entrance-making gowns but also on less formal garb such as exotic skin items, jewels and even uniform design.

His award-winning work has been widely acknowledged through awards such as "Fashion Designer of the Year" (SCMP/Harper's Bazaar's Style Awards, 2010) and "Hong Kong's Best Designer" (Moet et Chandon's Tribute to Asian Designers, 2005), and for being one of Forbes's 25 Most Influential Chinese in Global Fashion (2010).

Joanna Chu-Liao, Fashion Designer
Having grown up in a garment-manufacturing family, Joanna Chu-Liao has developed her fashion sense by being exposed to the world of textiles, prints and patterns at an early age. After spending years studying abroad and cultivating her skills as a fashion designer, Chu-Liao was scouted by Japanese companies Itochu and Look Japan to design ready-to-wear collections that were sold in major department stores like Mitsukoshi and Barneys New York. During the ten years of working for Japanese companies, she also designed uniforms for Estee Lauder and Folli Follie. In 2011, she took the leap in starting her own brand, Jo’s Ready to Wear, aimed at satisfying the fashion palette of modern women who are not just blind followers of fashion. The label has garnered much acclaim for embodying a contradiction of feminity and a harsher, rock-and-roll edge.

Enoch Ho, Fashion Designer
Enoch Ho received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Washington before pursuing a Fashion Design degree from Parsons School for Design. Having worked for fashion labels such as TSE, Catherine Deane and Blanc de Chine, Ho decided to pursue the dream of setting up his own contemporary fashion label, Berayah, named after the Hebraic word "baraiah", meaning "God has created". Seeking to explore biblical themes, Ho designs and curates each collection as a tool for storytelling, using symbolism, amongst other techniques, as his unique translation. Ho aims to create ultra-wearable and modern ladieswear, in which every garment is draped and cut in-house for precise and flattering proportions, paired with a crisp geometric aesthetic.
