We started the Singapore Fashion Week with a bang last night and things only got more exciting today. Here’s a roundup of the 5 things we loved about day 2!

#1 Star Creation

Rebecca Lam 

Han Newman

Junzhou

A bittersweet conclusion to The Star Creation young fashion designer competition as the three winners from 2014 showed their capsule collections – sweet to see how far the designers had come; bitter as the competition has been wound up and there won’t be a new set to watch next year. The work of Rebecca Lam, Han Newman and Junzhou has certainly matured after their year at FJ Benjamin. Rebecca Lam showed off graphic prints and wearable shapes; Han Newman showed some fun, sporty outerwear but the highlight was the primary coloured menswear by Junzhou – this is one designer to definitely watch out for.

#2 Elohim by Sabrina Goh

As one of the three Singapore designers hand-picked for the inaugural Fashion Futures programme (selected designers have the opportunity to show their collections to distinguished industry representatives from America’s CFDA) Goh certainly did not disappoint. She opened the show with her signature structural forms in black neoprene but the standout looks for me were definitely the boldly coloured pieces that feature patterns inspired by the rock formations of China’s Danxia landforms.

#3 Dzojchen


Dzojchen Cruise 2015/16 & Spring/Summer 2016

Dzojchen Cruise 2015/16 & Spring/Summer 2016

Having dressed Hollywood celebrities like Johnny Depp and Zoe Kravitz, this Singapore based label Dzojchen has always been one to watch. Designer Chelsea Scott-Blackhall showcased her first full womenswear collection for SGFW and the essence of it could be expressed in one word: indiviDUALITY (her way of describing the pull between womenswear and menswear). I loved her juxtaposition of soft silky materials with structured jackets; the hard and the soft; men and women … basically it was just a highly polished, damn sexy bunch of clothes. We’re looking forward to seeing where this brand will end up.

#4 Dion Lee

The main focus of super hot (both in terms of reputation and looks – he really is a stunner and super sweet too!) Australian designer Dion Lee’s AW15 collection was about drapes and textures. Clean, sharp silhouettes dominated the runway with his signature cut-outs. It’s amazing how these pieces are so intricately detailed yet look effortless to put on. The best part of the show? A luxurious emerald mohair coat. I really wish we had winter in Singapore so it would seem a little less ridiculous to add that on to my never ending lust list. Get to know more about Dion Lee in our upcoming video interview with him!
