Each pair of finalists will be paired with a fashion/beauty blogger in Singapore to form a team of three.
The teams will gather at a venue on 19 July and the organisers will set out a fashion theme challenge for the finalists.
Each team will be given a budget to create an outfit that best suits the theme within 24 hours. The bloggers in each team will complete a blog entry in the same time period, writing about their design and brainstorming process for their respective teams.
All teams will then gather at the end of the given time schedule. Each team will then wear their newly purchased fashion items, and to present their new outfits to a panel of judges, which includes representatives from Hong Kong Tourism Board, omy.sg and prominent Singapore stylists.
The public get to vote for their favourite teams from 21 July to 31 July.
Public votes and judges’ scores each account for 20% and 80% of the final results respectively.
Voters also stand a chance to win a 3D2N trip to Hong Kong. (*Terms and Conditions apply)
On 29 August, contestants will attend a “crash course” in the latest fashion trends by a Hong Kong stylist.
During the briefing on the contest day (30 August), each team will be assigned a shopping mission based on a fashion theme for this season. Teams are required to interpret their given fashion theme to create a new summer look by mixing and matching different fashion items purchased during the contest.
With reference to the assigned mission, each team is required to plan their shopping itinerary that demonstrates their shopping strategies and locations.
Each team will be given HK$20,000 Visa spending credit and is required to shop for fashion items that constitute two outfits, one for each team member, according to the assigned shopping mission and within the given time frame.
Each team will be required to arrive at the finishing point before the cut-off time to hand in the official receipts for all purchased items to the staff of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB).
Points will be deducted for latecomers.
Presentation and Judging
The judging session will be conducted on 31 August.
Each team will wear their newly purchased fashion items, which they need to present to the judging panel in the format of a runway show.
Following the runway show, each team will share their shopping itinerary and shopping experience in Hong Kong.
Contestants are not allowed to present any fashion items of their own during the presentation to the judging panel.
The team who scores the highest points in the competition will be rewarded with a Visa spending credit worth HK$200,000.
