The Mills is a new opened shopping mall located in an old historic building in Tsuen Wan that once was a cotton mill in the 50s/60s.
The big old factory has transformed into a home for the fashion and textile industry while creating a financially sustainable social ecosystem. The Mills consists of three major spaces. First is Mills Fabrica, a gallery and shopping area focused on the business of fashion, aiming to help young creators and small start-ups kickstart their future. There’s also the heritage conservation project, known as CHAT. The final component, Shopfloor, is a space showcasing the work of artists, designers and local talents and giving shoppers the opportunity to interact with the creators behind the pieces.
