Gareth Pugh is coming to Singapore

I just got to know this via a few local fashion blogs. I didn’t attend the Audi Fashion Festival (formerly Singapore Fashion Festival) press conference, I went off on the 26th, yeah. Anyway, the line-up for this five day event happening in early May is pretty incredible: Christian Lacroix couture, Gareth Pugh (he is showing his Fall 09′ collection on the runway for the first time), Marc by Marc Jacobs, Ashley Isham bridal couture and Vivienne Westwood. As usual, a supermodel is dropping by and this time it’s gonna be Jacquetta Wheeler.  For more information, Vogueite wrote a super detailed post on the event, as well as Fashionation and Fash-E.

Exciting stuff but I have a little question, are there any countries out there where the local fashion week is packed with 80% international designers? I am hoping that there will be more Singaporean brands/labels showing in future.
