Featuring runway shows, the Blueprint trade show, and stunning Spring/Summer collections, Singapore Fashion Week 2016 now has a new date
May is typically the biggest and busiest month for fashion in Singapore, with Singapore Fashion Week (SFW) claiming top spot in everyone’s social calendar. But big changes are brewing for this annual fashion extravaganza. First up? SFW 2016 will be moving to a later date in October.
The event is usually held for five days in May, but this year’s Singapore Fashion Week will be postponed to October to align itself with international fashion weeks showcasing Spring/Summer collections. No date has been confirmed.
But fret not, fashion insiders: it will still be the same Singapore Fashion Week we all know and love with an exciting lineup of events, which include runway shows by international and local designers, the Blueprint trade show, SFW Fashion Talks Series, and Fashion Futures. In addition, there will be six months of activities leading up to Singapore Fashion Week, which include free and ticketed events open to members of the public.
Last year’s outing was a resounding success with big names such as Diane von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham, Dion Lee, and Thakoon showcasing their Fall/Winter collections, and an epic turnout of 12,500 guests that included supermodel Godfrey Gao, fashion editor Miroslava Duma, CEO of Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Steven Kolb, Cate Blanchett, and other big names.
