Melco Resorts & Entertainment announces the results of the ‘Melco Environmental Services Team Uniform Design Competition’ in collaboration with the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Centre (CPTTM).

The purpose of the competition is to continue developing positive partnerships with the city’s designers, suppliers and manufacturers through dedicated Made in Macau projects, to support the local creative industry, as well as to provide a platform for local designers to showcase their talent. Local designer Mr. Yongjia Liang was named competition Champion, and Ms. Tam Hang I and Ms. Cheong Weng Ian were awarded 1st Runner-up and 2nd Runner-up respectively.

A presentation ceremony took place on May 26 at Studio City. Melco representatives, including Mr. David Sisk, Chief Operating Officer, Macau Resorts, and Property President, City of Dreams, Macau; Ms. Augusta Vargas-Prada, Vice President of Supply Chain; and Ms. Macy Lam, Vice President, General Manager, Hotel, and CPTTM representatives including Dr. Shuen Ka Hung, Director-General; Ms. Victoria Kuan, Deputy Director-General; Mr. Tang Kuan Meng Jose, Member of Board of Directors and Vice-Convener of Fashion & Image Committee; and Ms. Laney Ng, Senior Manager were among the event’s attendees.

Mr. David Sisk, Chief Operating Officer, Macau Resorts, and Property President, City of Dreams, Macau of Melco Resorts & Entertainment said, “As part of Melco’s long-standing commitment to the development and advancement of local SMEs and creative talent for Macau’s sustainable growth, we are pleased to continue working closely with CPTTM to help promote opportunities for local designers, talent, suppliers and manufacturers. The competition’s submissions have been of exceptional quality, and I offer my sincere congratulations to all competition participants and winners for their achievements. We look forward to having the winning design manufactured locally for our team members in the next phase of this worthwhile project.”

Dr. Shuen Ka Hung, Director-General of Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Centre, commented, “Each of the competition’s submissions showcase the strengths of works by our local Macau designers. Some participants expressed that they hope to improve their standard of work through the contest, to increase exposure for local design through working with integrated resorts and to build connections. We appreciate that Melco organized a voting internally among employees to increase engagement, arouse interest in fashion design and promote local design. We are pleased to continue working with Melco to support local cultural and creative industries and look forward to hosting more diversified events together, as well as through working with other community partners to promote and support innovative designs made locally in Macau.”

Competition winner Mr. Yongjia Liang, whose winning design will be manufactured in Macau by a local Small & Medium Enterprise (SME), said, “It is such an honor to be offered the opportunity to create a uniform for the Melco Environmental Services Team. I would like to thank Melco and CPTTM for creating this wonderful opportunity for local fashion designers to get creative with the use of sustainable materials to design a uniform that is aligned with the Melco brand in terms of aesthetics, design concept, practicality and comfort. It’s been an invaluable learning opportunity for myself, and I’m sure for fellow participants; enabling us the chance to exchange creative ideas and the opportunity to get to know the practical ins-and-outs of custom fashion design.”
