Alex Po and Derek Cheng

PONDER.ER by Alex Po and Derek Cheng challenges gender norms with thought-provoking gender-fluid designs that stimulate self-exploration. By dismantling conventions and embracing diverse choices, the label reinterprets contemporary classics to defy rigid preconceptions of fashion and gender behaviour.

Prioritising comfort, their collections spark conversations while showcasing a vibrant spectrum of aesthetics. PONDER.ER has collaborated with the Hong Kong Ballet and was recognised in Vogue Hong Kong’s ‘The Next List 2020‘. In 2022, PONDER.ER was the Yu Prize 2022 Grand Prize winner and was named Fashion Asia Hong Kong’s ‘10 Asian Designers To Watch‘. In 2024, PONDER.ER was also shortlisted as a semi-finalist of the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers.
