Vivien Ong at Milan & Paris Fashion Week
Is this for real? I never thought a local born and bred model (not pan-asian, not mixed Singaporean with some white blood) will make a splash in the international catwalk calendar aka New York/London/Milan/Paris Fashion Weeks, but it looks like something great is about to happen here. Vivien Ong, who won The New Paper’s New Face in 2010 when she was an 18-year-old communications and information design student, is now a professional high fashion model signed to Beatrice in Milan and NEXT in Paris. She walked the John Richmond show and yesterday Anthony Vaccarello in Paris. Anthony Vaccarello is an up and coming designer who is featured in VOGUE US recently alongside Balmain and Altuzarra. His shows are always packed with well known models – Anja Rubik, Karlie Kloss, Arizona Muse are just a few names. Follow Vivien on twitter (@yaxenduff) as she tweets about her fashion week adventures, exciting to see a local model on the world stage!
