Singapore Fashion Week to feature an all-Asian lineup
today Sep 14, 2016
Singapore Fashion Week returns this October with a strong unprecedented line-up of Asian designers. The event, which is to be held between 26-30 October, will celebrate and honour the work of Asian designers who have succeeded in the international fashion arena.
The Gallery show schedule will be kicked off by Beijing-based Chinese haute couturier Guo Pei, who was given an honorary status at the prestigious Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in November 2015. He was also named one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People of 2016 by Time Magazine.
This season will also see New York-based designer and CFDA member, Naeem Khan make his Asian runway debut, as well as Malaysian-born Han Chong, designer of contemporary label Self-Portrait.
Other brands presenting their collections as part of the new initiative Singapore Fashion Week Access include Aijek, Stolen, MAX.TAN, CHI CHI VON TANG, Nude Femme, Nida Shay and shoe label MASHIZAN. Sheranut.
“The fashion week in Singapore has come of age to embrace and celebrate Asian designers and highlights. While we continue to learn and be inspired by successful designers and labels from the West, the time has come to change the game, with the rise of digital technology and consumer power in Asia. We believe that this year’s mix of stunning Asian international highlights and spotlight on homegrown talents at SGFW will be exciting for fashion-watchers across Asia and the world,” says Ms Tjin Lee, Chairman of SGFW.
Singapore Fashion Week’s shows will be broadcasted with a 360 virtual reality live streaming as a result of the acquisition of Digital Fashion Week earlier this year. The move will bring DFW’s digital capabilities to the fashion week and mark a new era of digital presence.
“We are thrilled that DFW and SGFW are joining forces this year with the shared vision to foster the Asian fashion industry. DFW has been digitalising the fashion week experience for millions of local and international viewers, and we are excited to bring to the fashion week our expertise in experimental technology and new digital features,” says Ms Charina Widjaja, Founder of DFW.
