Fan of shopping for local brands in Singapore, you won’t want to miss this! LIV got an exclusive sneak preview of some of the fantastic local design talent that will feature on the runway at Digital Fashion Week (31 October – 3 November 2014). Read on for the reveal, plus check out our interview with co-founder Charina Widjaja here.
In Good Company
Co-founded in 2012 by four friends, IGC’s capsule collections are full of versatile, well-made classic silhouettes with lots of artful tailoring and draping. It also has a gorgeous “mini-me” range for girls aged three to eight.
Working in the fashion industry for over 35 years, Thomas Wee has been invited to exhibit his collections all across Asia. Known for his unrivalled craftsmanship and innovative designs, this talented designer has audiences ooh-ing and ahh-ing as his clothes shimmy down the runway.
Designers Kenny Lim and Andrew Loh created hit fashion label Depression in 2006 after a low point in their lives – the name reminds them that you can make a comeback from that. Their deconstructed and experimental monochromatic clothing has been likened to wearable art. Well-loved across Asia, these guys have collaborated with big names such as Swarovski and Casio.
Pauline Ning produces urban, ready-to-wear styles, feminine yet with a touch of edginess. Incorporating a diverse mix of materials, textures and colours, the collection features plenty of elaborate statement pieces.
Playing with many different aesthetics, Max Tan’s collections are anything but ordinary. Expect designs that play with proportions, surprising silhouettes and over-sizing.
Digital Fashion Week Singapore 2014 will be held from 31 October to 3 November at the National Design Centre, 111 Middle Road. Tickets for the public are available from Sistic.
