Also, the experience gained from the apprenticeship inspired the three elements that were emphasized in his future designs – silhouette, simplicity and elegance.In 1973, after he had saved enough money, Lau left Hong Kong for his further education on fashion design in a renowned fashion design institute - Central Saint Martins in London According to Elle Magazine (1991 August edition), Lau ‘was enlightened by the freedom and artistic environment there and began to understand better what fashion design really was’.,,
