As one of the largest shopping hubs in Asia, Hong Kong attracts shoppers from around the world with its great deals and discounts. Not only are high-end designer brands cheaper there, but there are also tons of local brands that offer unique, trendy pieces to suit your every mood and style.

Two Cosmo readers recently headed over to "Asia's World City" to take part in a special competition, the Visa go Hong Kong Super Shopper, with teams from Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Mainland China, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. The 22 contestants raced through malls, side streets, and high-end boutiques, armed with a Visa card loaded with HK$20,000 spending credit per team, to find pieces for a total makeover that could win them HK$200,000!

You've already seen the outfits of Team Philippines, and now you can check out the head-to-toe looks created by the 10 other countries! Each team randomly picked one of the following themes for their makeovers:

"Dressing For A Special Occasion"

Teams had different ways of interpreting this theme, and they prepared by planning a scenario to guide their shopping spree. One team even bought birthday party favors as props! Girls went for funky formal, while a common trend among the men was pairing bow ties with casual suits.

"Gearing Up For The Outdoors"

Two teams got this theme, and they both had vastly different takes on it! The Philippine team went for a fiercely feminine safari look, while a team composed of two guys went for a more sporty, athletic look.
 
"Dressing For Business Success"

We were impressed by the creative corporate looks that teams put together in a limited amount of time (read: eight hours!). They didn't stick to the conventional suit and tie or A-line skirts; rather, they went for more fashion-forward yet still office-appropriate outfits.

"Having A Great Night Out"

The looks for this theme ranged from avant garde clubwear to dolled-up date attire. Contestants had the chance to get really experimental with their makeovers, and it seems like that freedom helped inspire them—the two winning teams both had this theme!
