Project Description


Run entirely by students, from product design to sourcing and marketing and business development, 852 Designs is a social enterprise that catalyzes creativity in Hong Kong, fosters a sense of community and pride, supports sustainable development, while empowering youth.

Hong Kong is rarely deemed a favourable breeding ground for the artistically inclined, whose unique creativity finds no outlet. There are few institutions that cultivate and nurture such talents, and even fewer career opportunities and infrastructural facilities that support the development of the art and creative industry.

The apparel products are designed by HKU students, and manufactured to the most sustainable and ethical production standards.
