Sailor-Made: Manifestations of Nautical Fashion in Hong Kong Culture

Why Sailor-Made? Talk to our Curator at the gallery to know more about sailor suit, nautical fashion, and the behind-the-scenes of the special exhibition “Sailor-Made: Manifestations of Nautical Fashion in Hong Kong Culture”.

With a selection of historical images, uniform, and costume exhibits, Sailor-Made showcases how nautical clothing has been adopted, appropriated, and reflected in mainstream fashions and global pop culture. From Royal dress code in the United Kingdom back in the 19th century, to prominent designer fashion brands, the trend for sailors’ fashion has until now remain relevant. More so, nautical fashion influenced school uniforms in East Asia from the 1920s and onwards alongside popular culture and entertainment industries in Hong Kong and beyond, such as animations like Sailor Moon sparking off the subculture of “cosplay” in Japan and East Asia. Sailor chic still has much to inspire contemporary fashion and day-to-day wear.
