SINGAPORE — This city-state is eager to boost its international fashion week profile.
A key component of that is Asia Fashion Week, a week-long string of events that wrapped up May 2. The events included a fashion design competition, a trade show featuring local talent and an industry conference. All this activity coincided with the Audi Fashion Festival, a series of local and international runway shows open to the public. Even though the foreign collections were previously shown in New York, London and Milan earlier this year, Singaporeans clamored for tickets to see Carmen Kass and Korean supermodel Song Kyunga parade the likes of Dsquared, Marchesa and House of Holland on the catwalk. Roberto Cavalli closed the proceedings.
