Blueprint, the fashion trade show which occurs alongside Singapore Fashion Week, is back for its sixth edition in May.

Specialising in launching pre-spring or cruise collections, it features Asian brands, as well as international brands looking to enter Asian markets.

This year’s Blueprint will group the ready-to-wear and accessories brands into seven trending categories – feminine chic, modern minimalist, classic, avant garde, bespoke tailored, sports and urban streetwear.

The trade show, which runs from May 14 to 15, will be followed by the consumer event Blueprint Emporium from May 16 to 17. It is free and open to the public. Members of the public can shop for samples, limited-edition items and off-season collections from the exhibiting brands, some of which are not yet available here.

Russian style star Miroslava Duma (also known as Mira Duma), founder of fashion news site Buro24/7, will make an appearance at Blueprint Emporium on May 17.
