HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 30 March 2023 – Hop into the Easter holidays this year with Starstreet Precinct, Hong Kong’s premier lifestyle destination, which will be introducing emmaAparty Bah Pau (肉包) bunny rabbits sprawled across the neighbourhood for the festive season.
From 28 March to 16 April 2023, this joyful collaboration will bring back the beloved rabbit installations that first appeared at Starstreet Precinct during Mid-Autumn Festival 2022. This time, the reusable bunny installations will return but dressed up in spring outfits from Fashion Clinic, using colourful and spring-themed textures with knit and crochet made from upcycled materials. The decorations will give shoppers wandering through the vibrant neighbourhood wonderful photo opportunities, while showcasing Starstreet Precinct’s commitment to sustainable development through recycling materials and promoting eco-friendly brands.
The installations represent Starstreet Precinct’s commitment to sustainability by recycling materials and promoting eco-friendly brands and practices. And the fun doesn’t stop there! Visitors can get creative on social media with an Instagram filter game featuring Bah Pau at Starstreet Precinct. It’s the perfect way to have fun and interactions with the beloved emmaAparty rabbits while celebrating in Starstreet Precinct’s ever-evolving community filled with restaurants, shops and gorgeous decorations.
Driven by Sustainability
emmaAparty was created by a Taiwanese artist Emma Lin in 2009, with the goal of creating personified animals, like the Bah Pau, to bring everyone back to their childhood and evoke a nostalgic sense of joy and happiness.
Fashion Clinic is a design collective founded by a group of fashion designers with a mutual vision to explore the possibilities of sustainability in textiles. Its dynamic Wardrobe Awakening Service involves the three “Rs” of fashion sustainability – Repair, Refresh and Redesign. This eco-friendly system allows room to “heal the industry, heal the closet and heal hearts”.
Together, emmaAparty and Fashion Clinic create a unique and sustainable campaign for everyone to celebrate! By upcycling emmaAparty’s rabbit characters and dressing them up in sustainable outfits from Fashion Clinic, this initiative is a reflection of both brands’ commitment to sustainability, as it involves repurposing and breathing new life into existing materials to create fresh and unique designs. Plus, they are absolutely adorable – and utterly stylish, might we add!
Whether you’re a regular visitor of Starstreet Precinct or a first time visitor to this lively neighbourhood – you won’t want to miss the adorable bunnies on display! Friends, families, colleagues and couples are invited to gather at this vibrant space to take photos with Bah Pau.

Both holding onto their beautifully decorated Easter eggs, be sure to snap a picture in between them to get that perfect social media shot.|
|Location: Outside Three Pacific Place on Star Street||Walk up the slope — and perhaps stop by for lunch or dinner at one of the magnificent eateries on the way — to find another striking rabbit installation ideal for your next gram. You’ll find several furry companions sitting round the table on the upper deck giving ample opportunity to “say cheese” and get that pic, while admiring their chic outfits!|
