Prabal Gurung, Oscar de la Renta, Kate Bosworth coming to AFF 2014
Audi Fashion Festival Singapore has always been bringing in top international designers from European fashion capitals. This year it looks like we are going to have a bite of the Big Apple as two established New York-based brands are going to open and close the five day festival.
Prabal Gurung, who was born in Singapore, will be making his first return to the country at AFF. The Nepalese designer has been a permanent fixture at New York Fashion Week since his debut in 2009 (the same year AFF was launched) and has since dressed the likes of Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga. Prabal will be setting the record for being the first Asian designer to open AFF. The legendary Oscar de la Renta will be showcasing his magical glamourous designs on the last day of the festival as the closing show. His show at AFF will no doubt be one of the hottest in the calendar and most talked about for months to come.
A total of 10 homegrown labels will also be participating in AFF and three of them are having their first solo show – Ong Shunmugam, Hansel and Saturday by Nic Wong.
Official Skincare Partner SK-II will also be bringing in their ambassadors Kate Bosworth and Godfrey Gao to the festival. Kate will be walking the red carpet while Godfrey is going to model homegrown designer Ashley Isham‘s capsule menswear collection on the runway.
