Singapore Fashion Week (SGFW) returns this year with a tighter and more impactful fashion week. The new format will see more than 50 designers from 11 Asian countries show over three days.
In line with SGFW’s history of bringing in top international designers, SGFW is proud to
welcome celebrated New York-based, Asian fashion designer Jason Wu, as the highlight
this year. The Asian-American designer is best known for dressing Michelle Obama for
many occasions, including her first Inauguration Ball in 2009. The A-list celebrity-favourite has also dressed the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore and Diane Kruger on the red carpet. Wu will also be speaking as a highlight at SGFW’s inaugural Fashion Tech summit, ZIPCODE.
In addition to the runway shows, SGFW will introduce a two-day Fashion Tech summit,
ZIPCODE, complementing the glamour and buzz of the runway shows and parties with
thought leadership, business networking, potential funding and learning opportunities.
Modest Style, the dawning of a new age of fashion Modest fashion is a global cultural movement on the rise, appealing to women of many different faiths, and may not be related to religion. This new age of fashion has seen an increasing number of adopters on the runways, such as fashion powerhouses Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, DKNY and H&M.
In line with this, SGFW is proud to announce its first-of-its-kind modest fashion partnership with MODESTyle, Asia’s leading modest fashion retail platform, with a common vision to leverage the huge potential of the modest market in the region.
Fashion veteran Laichan will make fashion week history as the first Singaporean designer to open the main show at SGFW this year. The iconic local designer, well known to exclusive fashion insiders and loved by his loyalists, has dressed the likes of dignitaries to high society ladies. The LAICHAN standalone boutique, housed in the historic Raffles Hotel for 25 years, was a long-time industry and insider favourite.
The region’s finest fashion labels will also be celebrated in the inaugural Asia Fashion
Designers Showcase, which will see exceptional talents from China, Japan, Korea,
Indonesia and the Philippines present their creations on the local runway.
Completing the full Asian line-up are Singaporean labels Exhibit, ARISSA X, and the 2017 Fashion Futures programme’s eight fashion labels – Whole9Yards, GINLEE, LING WU,
DEBONEIRE, NIDA SHAY, WAI YANG, WEEKEND SUNDRIES and Ying the Label.
Set against the stunning backdrop of National Gallery Singapore for the second time, the
fashion week will see designers, fashion businesses, retail techpreneurs, investors and
conversation-drivers converge to welcome the disruption.
