Fidé Fashion Weeks is back with Fashion Week 2013! From 9 to 19 October 2013, the highly anticipated 11-day world-class fashion event will see over 30 inspiring presentations of the latest season’s Men’s and Women’s Prêt-à-Porter and Couture labels that are set to blaze Asia’s fashion scene. I’ve been waiting all year for this. :) Last year I had an exceptional time and was completely blown away by the fashion presentations on the runway. I am giddy with anticipation towards this year’s shows. The excitement of seeing all the beautiful clothes on the runway is infectious and I need to outfit myself too! SOMEONE OUTFIT ME PLEASE!!! *^_^*
Fashion Week 2013 will deliver the highest show quality that will elevate the local fashion scene yet again, with new Prêt-à-Porter labels showing for the first time in Singapore, as well as several returning Couturiers and Haute Couturiers who have won the hearts of all fashion aficionados since its debut in 2011.
Returning this year are renowned French couturiers Alexis Mabille, On Aura Tout Vu, Julien Fournie and Stephane Rolland. As members and invited members of La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, they will once again present the craftsmanship and artistry inherent in their craft. Representing the very best of Asian Couture, they will be joined by Frederick Lee, Lie Sang Bong, Sebastian Gunawan, Yumi Katsura, Michael Cinco, Vatit Itthi and Guo Pei. As part of a special Japanese Couture Evening, Junko Koshino, Yoshiki Hishinuma and Keita Maruyama will be showing their collections.

From the Prêt-à-Porter side, participating retailers from The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands such as Anne Fontaine, Bread & Butter, Germain, MCM, MOISELLE, Surrender, Pierre Balmain, Porsche Design and 6Five Barcode will include the most stunning displays of their Fall/Winter 2013 collections.
As a design afficianado, I am thrilled and excited to be supporting Fashion Week 2013 by Fidé Fashion Weeks as it has been a hallmark of the organizer’s activities to be collaborative with the most prominent fashion authorities within the industry. In the past several years, they have worked closely with the La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture (in France). This year they have partnered with the renowned Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). That’s exciting!
Furthermore, the public will also be able to attend the shows by purchasing tickets priced at S$20 for single show; or a full-day pass priced at S$40 (access to all shows on the stated day) or a season pass priced at S$280 (subject to availability and access to all ticketed shows sold to the public). All prices are inclusive of booking fees. Beginning 12 September at 10AM, tickets are available for purchase from www.marinabaysands.com/ticketing.
Last but not least, as a prelude to Fashion Week 2013, on 4 October from 6pm to 11pm, the bi-annual VIP Fashion Night returns to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands with exclusive treats, live entertainment, complimentary champagne on arrival and irresistible retailer offers. The one-night only shopping extravaganza will feature up to 40% off at selected retailers plus a total of 250 attractive giveaways from Oroton, Pandora, Penhaligon’s, TODAI as well as tickets to the upcoming Starlight Express show by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The first 50 shoppers with a minimum spend of S$50 can redeem these treats every hour starting from 6pm.
Amidst the shopping extravaganza, shoppers can also enjoy free popcorn and candy floss, go wild at the instant photo kiosks and indulge in a pampering express manicure at the new OPI Nail Bar. Live music acts including Jazz at The Shoppes and a string quartet performance will also inject smooth vibes and lend a soothing respite for all.
