#1 Victoria Beckham meeting up with our Singapore designers

Our local fashion pride got up close and personal with the fabulous designer Victoria Beckham and got great pointers and thoughtful insights. The Fashion Futures programme is really meaningful as it was created to give support to Singapore fashion talent and help 3 young designers – Chelsea Scott-Blackhall from Dzojchen, Priscilla Shunmugam from Ong Shunmugam and Sabrina Goh from Elohim – make the leap into the global fashion marketplace.

#2 Posh Spice vacuuming the runway

Her strive for perfection is not to be messed with. Victoria Beckham requested the runway be repainted a specific shade of dusty pink and rearranged the layout of the guests’ seats to better complement her collection. 

#3 Victoria Beckham causing major coat envy

Victoria Beckham presented her AW15 collection here on our sunny shores and it seemed a little out of place because of the many thick knits and heavy coats, but honestly, who cares. I have a terrible weakness for coats and they all looked amazing. Her collection saw lots of draping and asymmetric details on separates that focused a lot on accentuating a woman’s body in true Victoria Beckham style.

Singapore’s stars were in full force in their most stylish get ups for the last show of SGFW — I lost count of how many I saw. The CEO of Victoria Beckham and Lane Crawford were also in attendance to lend their support.

Singapore Fashion Week Roundup

We have been swept up in a fashion frenzy over the past five days but it’s been an adventure. I was glad to see a new focus introduced this year to help bring about the internationalisation of Singapore designers. I’m really looking forward to seeing our own local talent putting Singapore on the global fashion map in the near future.

‘Til next year!
