TVB Reveals Synopsis for “Fashion War”

All hell will break loose in TVB’s upcoming drama series Fashion War <潮流教主>, a drama that gives old-fashioned palace intrigue a modern, trendy twist. It stars Moses Chan (陳豪), Him Law (羅仲謙), Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), Ali Lee (李佳芯), and Joel Chan (陳山聰) as employees of a popular fashion magazine, struggling to maintain their stead in the competitive fashion world.

Produced by Dave Fong (方駿釗), Fashion War also stars Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠), Koni Lui (呂慧儀), Jeannie Chan (陳瀅), Leanne Li (李亞男), Jacquelin Ch’ng (莊思敏), Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯), and Lisa Ch’ng (莊思明). The 20-episode serial premieres on February 29, 2016 in Hong Kong and Malaysia.

Synopsis

“Trendsetter” Yip Long (Moses Chan), the powerful chief editor of MODES fashion magazine, is constantly at war. MODES’ publisher and top executive, Man (Hanjin Tan), is a scheming yes-man, always hiding a knife behind his fake smile. To restrict Long’s power and authority within the company, he appoints the former model Vincy (Ali Lee) as the director of the advertising department.

Long is not unfamiliar with office politics and welcomes Man’s challenge. However, a careless mistake on his part gets him involved in the wrong side of the law. This incident eventually leads him to hire editor assistant Yan (Sisley Choi), who originally made clothes in Sham Shui Po for a living.

Yan’s introduction to MODES put the fashion magazine in a heightened state of war, but Yan manages to overcome all obstacles through her positivity and hard work. Along with fashion editor Francis (Him Law), Yan helps Long overcome a crisis that threatened the business. Yan is confident that Long would announce her as his successor, but the road is not as smooth as it looks.

    Actually forward to see this, something a bit meaty compared to the stupid comedy TVB s dishing out now with K-9 Cop and Short Stick.

    The only thing which will ruin it is Sisley Choi , can’t stand her acting and her high pitch voice.

      @mike Yah. I agree with you. Maybe cos ppl have short memory. And he is a guy. Can’t imagine tvb will use a female artist who divorced her husband, refuses jobs offered by tvb so that she can accompany her new boyfriend.

      As for how good a actor he is, I don’t think he is great. And there are many people can replace him if given a chance, like Power Chan.

    Question is will we see Sisley portray a clueless ditzy clumsy trying to learn the ropes character for the 3rd time in the row?

    However, interested to see how well Ali Lee will do, since she is going to be the female lead in a legal drama later in the year.

    A serious drama at last but, the cast is refreshing except for Sisley Choi. She can’t act and her voice turns me off.

    She just ruins every series she is in, why is TVB hell bent on promoting her? and why are HK audiences accepting of her?

    And how the heck is she nominated as best new commer in the 2016 HK Film awards?

      @mulder99 Because she did very well in her movie. If you watch that movie, you would see why she is nominated. Actually Sisley isnt bad but the TVB roles doesnt suit her and the TVB directors doesnt teach her to do better.

    Sounds crappy from the synopsis to the cast. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of Ali. Don’t like her at all, she’s got the vixen look good for playing mistresses and scheming females and unlikeable characters. Definitely a drama on my “skip” list.

      @isay
      Maybe because shes sexy and a good actress for playing those mistress roles well? I agree that the series is not very appealing though.

      @isay I second that. TVB is too desperate that it has to resort to the actresses like Ali. She is a fox.

      • mulder99 replied:

        @kaykay408 At least Ali Lee can act. and TVB realise that too so she is being promoted to 1st line actress now.

        If you look at Nancy Wu, she too was doing foxy roles when she first started, Nancy Wu got better roles after Rosy Business 1 when she was also cast as a fox.
        Now she is no: 1 Ali Lee will be on the same path way..

        @mulder99 maybe if she acts as a supporting actress for a long period of time like Nancy then she will finally get some fans. Not to take away some credits from her, I agree she actually can act, but only villain roles. She just has that look, especially her eyes.

        @kaykay408 Well Ali Lee does has a villainous in this series especially in episode 2. She is going to the protagonist against Moses.

        You think Sisley Choi is bad, did anyone see the scene with Veronia Shiu? She had 1 line in episode 2 and sux so badly… It makes Sisley a best actress winner in comparison.

    Moses as a fashion editor?? TVB, you got to be kidding me. Moses looks like someone from some forsaken village and TVB wants to make him looks hip??? Even as an architect in GOR he failed miserably, and now this??? TVB, you outdone yourself this time.

      @freedalas LOL.  So true.  Moses and the words ‘fashion editor’ shouldn’t even be used in the same sentence!  TVB has indeed gone off the deep end with their recent casting selections (in my opinion at least). With this series, I don’t like anyone in the cast, plus the story itself sounds ‘meh’ (which is disappointing given that I like the series’ scriptwriter Benny Wong and was looking forward to seeing what he would bring to the table after returning to TVB from HKTV last year).   Obviously this series will be a definite ‘skip’ for me.

      @freedalas: IMO, I feel that Moses is over-rated. Totally not a fan of his acting. But he is one of those TVB actors with the highest number of endorsements. Why he is so popular with advertisers baffles me big time….

        @lml1977

        Moses is popular because he has a good clean image and marketed as a good father. That’s what good brands look for.

      • lml1977 replied:

        @jimmyszeto: Yeah…I suppose so. His image is generally clean, not much bad publicity. Just not a fan of his acting though. Of course, he has his own fan base and appeals to others.

        I’m not a fan at all either. He was good in family man, love bond and heavens burn though.

    Watched 1st episode and it’s not too bad , the cast is fresh except for Sisley Choi just can’t stand her acting. She is ruining the series, She has such a heavy role, why TVB insisting on using her as a lead? With a fairly high production,they should have used someone else in her role.

    Of all people why this sisley again? Her acting is so monotonous and her voice is so so unbearable, irritating in short! TVB is so darn lame these days and is “always” promoting the same actress/actor they favor which we see them in every series in succession. How pathetic!

    I quite like Fashion War, even with Sisley Choi in it now,
    Although not a fan of Sisley, she is bearable in this series…not as whiney in her voice. This is probably her best role so far..

    The back stabbing between Moses , Ali and Hanjin is interesting which is where the war begins and the plot and twists come.

    Just watch episode 1 yesterday. The best actor in said episode is Hanjin Tan. The guy’s cantonese may not be prefect (it has mandarin accent), but, boy, was he natural in his acting. He’s not acting out the character, he embodies the character. The facial expression, tone of voice, all comes naturally. They do not feel rehearsed or formulaic.
