LONDON — The second Digital Fashion Week Singapore, which runs from Nov. 1 to 4 in the Southeast Asian country, will collaborate with the British Council and have a British theme, as organizers seek to celebrate connection between the British fashion industry and Singapore.
The British Council is the U.K.’s cultural relations organization, whose global projects center around the arts. “We’re very pleased to support Digital Fashion Week in their efforts to encourage and nurture home-grown designers, many of whom studied or took up internships in the U.K. before launching their own brands in Singapore,” Antony Phillipson, British High Commissioner to Singapore, said. “This event is, therefore, both a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the strength of the U.K./Singapore fashion partnership and a fabulous stage for some of the most exciting designers in the world to show off their talent.” He added, “Fashion is one of the U.K.’s most vibrant and creative industries, contributing more than 21 billion pounds a year to the U.K. economy.” RELATED STORY: Bloomingdale's Launching 'Brit Style' >>
