We all know about London, Paris, Milan and New York fashion week, but there are actually so many other fashion weeks or days in the world and they’re quite exciting to check out. It’s important & interesting to see what’s happening in other parts of the world. I know that fashion is global but sometimes it feels quite insular, we all know about the global mega brands but I just love and want to know who else is there.
Lately I keeping hearing about Singapore…It’s some where I’ve wanted to visit for quite a while. Singapore Fashion Festival 08 (SFF) is a ten day festival from March 28th to April 6th, 2008 at The Tent @ Orchard, Ngee Ann City, Civic Plaza. The catwalk theatre was built for the SFF and accommodates up to 1000 guests with a 60 foot catwalk, and features a 8-metres LED screen.
Opening the fashion gala is Matthew Williamson (he’s also the Creative Director at Pucci). The theme for this year’s Singapore Fashion Festival is ‘Legends & Rising Stars’. These are some of the rising stars: from India, fashion designer Ritu Kumar, from Singapor Tan Yoong, Thomas Wee and Qiu Hao from China. The closing show is cK Calvin Klein S/S 2008 with Creative Director Kevin Carrigan. I love that the SFF is also promoting the models that will be at the festival: Erin O’Connor, Emma Pei, Lili Shen, Kiki and Zhang Xu Chao! When a smaller city does a fashion show, it’s an event for the whole city – so the atmosphere around the festival is heightened!
