It’s time for Singapore Fashion Week again!
If you haven’t, check out the video compilation of the awesome designs from last year’s designers! I personally liked the Harper’s Bazaar’s Asia New Gen Fashion Designer Award designs better then the Star Creations. As the designs were more wearable and commercially viable – I wanted to wear a lot of the designs! 😀
More about the Harpers Bazaar’s Asia New Gen Fashion Designer 2015, the winner of the competition will be awarded a scholarship for a Master’s degree in fashion from the prestigious Istituto Marangoni (worth GBP26,700; about $56,430) in either its Paris, London or Milan campuses. He or she will also have the opportunity to retail their collection to a global market through online retailer, Inverted Edge. Over and above all this, the winner and all 10 finalists’ collections will be showcased in the five sponsoring Asian editions of Harper’s BAZAAR.
Since 2013, the top finalists from Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore have received immeasurable publicity and support from the industry: From having their collections featured in the pages of the magazine, to getting the opportunity to showcase them at Fashion Weeks in Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and more around the region.
The five editors from Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam will be on the judging panel in this regional competition. The finalists would be judged on the following criteria to ensure they have what it takes to succeed on a global scale: 1) Imagination and originality 2) Consistency 3) Technical knowledge in garment construction 4) Commercial viability of their designs and 5) Business and marketing acumen.
I’m looking forward to see the designers and their designs come this Saturday!
