Established in 2015, CONNESSE is a women’s ready-to-wear brand, combining oriental elements, styles, modern luxury and traditional craftsmanship. The brand is a collaboration of Hong Kong designer, Allan Chiu and Shanghai designer, Hua Yi. In 2002, when the designers first met, they felt that they both shared the similar fashion philosophy & vision; it was also in the same year, the launch of their very first women’s ready-to-wear brand, AcRosier, took success across the China & South-East Asia markets. Then in 2013 & 2014, their collaboration went to the next level by establishing se vetir de acr and CHAPTER À, in respective years. Their distinctive vision & interpretation of fashion has earned applause & praise from fellow members in the industry, and has immense success overseas; and is now spreading its wings to Japan.
