Fashion designers participating in the FASHIONALLY fashion parade are: Aries Sin, Chewthecud, Chloe Sung, Kenax Leung, Kurt Ho, Mim Mak, Mountain Yam, Nelson Leung, Sandra Chau, Walter Kong and Wong Tsz Yan.
FASHIONALLY has also teamed up with Stickyline to create a special-edition headpiece for customers of the fashion shops listed in the Hong Kong Fashion Map. A search engine, the map was created by FASHIONALLY to help fashion lovers locate shops carrying Hong Kong fashion brands.

Some 1,200 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions are expected to take part in this year's Fashion Week. Apart from the FASHIONALLY fashion parade, NARS Cosmetics will host an 8 July "Runway to Realway" presentation, unveiling the 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS Nail Collection. The international beauty brand will also collaborate with three ex-YDC designers - Elizabeth Lin, Mim Mak and Mountain Yam - to launch a new beauty product: the Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow.
A series of seminars and workshops will also take place, highlighting such international trend forecasters as Peclers Paris, Style Vision Asia and WGSN.
