Singapore Fashion Week: Diane von Fürstenberg
The Grand Dame of American fashion opened the 9th edition of Singapore Fashion Week last night.
.. and Diane von Fürstenberg certainly made her positive presence felt through out the show. The dramatic opening where local supermodel Sheila Sim walked out from a keyhole-like (signalling door way to Asia?) backdrop was certainly unforgettable. Given her popularity in this region, you will not expect anything less from the CFDA President and New York Fashion Week veteran. The iconic wrap dress made its grand appearance multiple times on the runway and the collection certainly looks like fashion royalty. Besides all the who’s who of the local high society scene and celebrities, Miroslava Duma was also in the house, having launched the Singapore edition of her BURO 24/7 the very same day. CEO of CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers America) Steven Kolb as well as Thakoon, who is scheduled to show on Saturday, are both sitting at front row too.
