About the Database

The PolyU Pao Yue-kong Library created the Digital Image Database to digitise and preserve the Library's substantive collection of slides and photos dating from 1985. The database features images from our fashion photography collections. One of the collection's highlights is the Fashion collection, which contains over 10,000 images created by PolyU.


Advanced Search for Images

The advanced search is available for image searching only.  Limit your search by image title, agent (e.g. designer name, artiest, exhibitor), or date of creation, etc.
