Opened by Diane Von Furstenberg and closed by Victoria Beckham, this SFW showcased international labels, Asian designers and new collaborations.
The week ran from May 13th to May 17th and, unlike the other major fashion weeks, mixed professional designers with new graduates making it a diverse, creative and innovative event in the fashion calendar.
From vibrate, colourful wrap dresses to tailored printed trousers, SFW excelled on putting a fun twist on a classic shape.
This mix print wrap dress by Ong Shunmugam is part of the label’s Cruise 2016 collection. We love the silhouette created – the wide sleeves contrast perfectly with the tightly tied waist. Pairing the dress with the white plimsoles is a certain style steal.
Lasalle College of the Arts graduate Li Shiqi’s collection. Titled ‘Dragon Heart’, this student’s work really catches the eye with it’s bold use of colourful images and effective use of materials such as mesh. Just one of 15 graduates to be showcased as part of SFW – make sure you keep an eye out for this promising designer!
International design brand, Thakoon displayed their AW15/Fall 2015 collection as part of SFW. Thai American designer Panichgul Thakoon’s use of colour is outstanding – this floaty maxi dress really captures the colours of autumn.
This collaboration between Indonesian designer Tex Saverio and Singapore’s largest online retail label Love, Bonito puts a fun twist on some classic silhouettes. This crop top and tailored trouser set gives a new meaning to ‘coords’!
As part of the ‘Fashion Futures’ showcase, Dzojchen Cruise Collection styled beautiful printed tailored trousers with wide collared floaty shirts. This is a label which prides itself on individuality and throughout their new collection this is certainly true.
