What To Expect In K11 Musea's Chinese New Year 2020 Line-Up
Limited-edition red packets
Usher in the Year of the Rat in style with elegant red packets, which come in four shades of red and are embossed with intricate patterns known as the K11 Musea motif. A symbol of Hong Kong’s rich heritage inspired by the prosperity and exoticism of the Silk Road, the red packets are available in a pack of 20 as a gift for customers who spend over HK$3,000 during January 3 to February 2 at K11 Musea.
Cheongsam heritage exhibition
The history of cheongsam in Hong Kong can be traced back to the 1960s, when the traditional Chinese dress was a fashion staple, especially among upper-class women.
To enliven the craftsmanship of the rich and vibrant artistic tradition, K11 Musea has collaborated with local cheongsam tailor Yin Kou Zhang, who specialises in a classic Shanghainese tailoring technique, to demonstrate the art of hand sewing a cheongsam, followed by a hauniu (flower buttons) workshop.
To transport you back to “In the Mood for Love”, Wong Kar Wai’s famed movie that celebrates cheongsam, the “Experience Chamber” of K11 Musea will be transformed into a cheongsam exhibition, showcasing iconic designs by Master Yan Ka Man including Miss Hong Kong Pageants dresses, as well as popular styles worn by celebrities in the 1960s.
When: From January 8 to February 29, 2020 (demonstrations at 2pm and workshops at 3:30pm on January 11 and 18, February 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29)
Where: Experience Chamber, first floor of K11 MUSEA
Chinese New Year culinary workshops
2020 may be the year where you can cook up a festive feast for your loved ones (or leave it to top restaurants offering Chinese New Year menus).
Participants can learn classic Cantonese dishes in the two cooking classes led by guest chefs at K11 Musea’s newest dining venues, including Sichuan-style kung pao prawns by Shu K and traditional claypot rice by Yung’s Bistro.
