Who knew we’d see this day – Singapore is hosting Asia’s Inaugural Men’s Fashion Week.
The Press Conference was held at the breath-taking ION SkyPark. The space was converted into a ‘Backstage’ set-up where models were made up right before our very eyes, which was certainly not an everyday occasion. We were literally light-headed from the adrenaline rush of inspecting racks and racks of fashion ranging from Emmanuel to Canali. Of course, the little chat with Philip Huang made our little ‘fashion vertigo’ all the more severe. This is just a taste of the upcoming Men’s Fashion Week, and let’s just say we are floored.
The event itself that will run from March 30th to April at Marina Bay Sands (venue TBC) promises to be a grand affair that will showcase a broad perspective on men’s style. International labels such as Boss Black and Etro will be showing side-by-side homegrown ones like Raoul. Also, hearsay has it that regional designers will also be represented in this showcase.
Of the 15 labels showing, ¾ of the designers or Senior Creative Directors will be present in Singapore to accompany their collections. Members of the public shall not fret about not getting a piece of MFW as 30% of the tickets will be on sale. This might also be your chance to rub shoulders with the faces of MFW namely Philip Huang and Utt .
Being the third of its kind in the world after Paris and Milan, it is no surprise that this initiative has already caught international media. We’ll be sure to document its progress every step of the way. Follow ONESIXTYNOTEPAD closely for first hand updates and exclusive inside story.
