Fashion Weak

Hong Kong’s runways have been showcasing the best that autumn has to offer. Meanwhile, your current wardrobe consists mainly of the wrinkled beachwear you’ve managed to salvage from your half unpacked summer suitcases. Well, fear not because trailing on the designer coattails of Hong Kong’s MasterCard Luxury Week has come “in the mood for luxe,” a series of discounts, deals and delights from some of Hong Kong’s best brands, guaranteed to help you ease into autumn… if not into that high-waisted pencil skirt you’ve had your eye on. If fashion is your weakness, you won’t be able to resist. All you need is a MasterCard, and what savvy shopper doesn’t have one of those?
