Things to do at Asia Fashion Exchange


It’s that time of the year again, that one week in May when the city actually feels really fashionably important because of all these designers, celebs, the who’s who of the international fashion scene flying in to this small island. Zac Posen has been tweeting up a storm about Singapore since he landed on Saturday morning and to be honest… I still can’t believe he’s here!

I will be giving out tickets to selective shows at Audi Fashion Festival (scroll to bottom) and even if you don’t have tickets to the shows, here are the places to go if you want to be part of all the action:


AFX NOW! Fashion Debate: Fashion’s Digital Media Revolution

Watching a live debate is exciting, especially when you have the fashion world’s movers and shakers in one room (in the Tent@Orchard actually).

Colin McDowell, legendary fashion commentator and creative director of the Audi Fashion Festival will chair the session, focused on Fashion’s Digital Media Revolution.

The panelists include Tallulah Harlech, Model-actress & Vogue.com contributor, Sasha Wilkins aka LibertyLondonGirl, Daniel Saynt of Rebecca Minkoff and Sarah Curran, Founder & CEO of mywardrobe.com.

This debate will be taking place on 17th of May at Tent@Orchard at 4PM. RSVP to info@afx.com.sg for a seat!



After-parties

If your idea of a ‘fashion week’ is having a lot of fun at the after-parties, this year’s line-up will definitely not disappoint you – The Misshapes, Timo Weiland himself spinning and HeartsRevolution will be part of the schedule. Although the bigger after-parties are by invite only, there are a few good ones that are open to public.

This one’s for all budding bloggers/photo journalists – international celebrity photographer Russell James will be a guest speaker at the Canon Blogger Workshop on 19th May at ION Orchard and I will be part of this event too together with fellow blogger Sarah from Wottoncool.

It’s a one-of-a-kind workshop where you get to pick up tips and skills from some of the best known industry professionals and also watch live demos.
