Biography

Karchun Leung began his foray into fashion by joining Hong Kong City Magazine in 2004 as  senior fashion editor. He has since risen though the publishing and media ranks of Mainland China to become editor-in-chief of Numéro China. Leung honed his craft as a writer for over half a decade at Modern Weekly Magazine, eventually becoming its deputy editorial director. Drawing from a wide range of cross-cultural references, Leung is well respected as an interviewer.

His work highlighting Chinese fashion internationally began in 2012 as Shanghai correspondent for Dazed Digital’s Satellite Voices column. He has also collaborated with 10 Corso Como Shanghai to highlight emerging talent via a programme of talks and most recently features in ‘Fashion China’, a book profiling Chinese brands to be released in 2015 by Thames & Hudson.

Leung also acts as a retail consultant for various brands in China and has recently collaborated with Chinese multibrand retailer Dong Liang for a design showcase during Shanghai Fashion Week. His background in fashion retail and visual merchandising means he is equally at home discussing business strategies and branding as well as the finer points of design.
