The biggest fashion shows in Singapore seem to have undergone quite a bit of reinvention in recent times and it’s all exciting stuff, particularly as we’ve now got our very own fashion week! Formerly the Audi Fashion Festival, #SGFW is attracting a lot of buzz round the world especially with a star-studded line up that has us raring to go. There’s a real push this year to continue promoting and inspiring local brands and designers, and so this fashion week is actually being held in collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to promote industry growth and bring Singers’ most stylish movers and shakers to the front of the international fashion scene.
This exciting event will be held from 13-17 May at the Tent on Orchard, so block out those dates on your calendar, girls. The queen of the wrap dress (and chairwoman of the CFDA) Diane Von Furstenburg is going to be opening the show with her brand new A/W 2015 collection and it only gets better from there. You’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for celebs like Cate Blanchette and Yoon Eun Hye on the front row, admiring looks from local favourites like Ong Shunmugam’s cultural fusion structures to the debut of super sleek Collate the Label. Of course, we’re also excited for Thakoon’s new line (we’ll never get tired of saying that name) and you’ll be hard pressed to drag us away from the tent with Victoria Beckham closing the show with her autumn and winter collection. Oh Becks, we love you so.
Aside from amazing shows, if you’re a buzzing fashionista yourself then you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for the yet-to-be-released lineup of industry insider talks and workshops. And if you want to get more of an insight into the world of fashion, sign up as a volunteer by shooting firstname.lastname@example.org a line – just be sure to share those behind the scene peeks with us @sassysingapore!
Tickets go on sale in April and you’ll be able to snag them through SISTIC, so keep your eyes peeled! We’ll fill you in if we hear any more deets. Now, it’s time to start planning our outfits!
