I attended the Future Fashion Now shows last week, which featured the Spring/Summer 2013 collections of several young, emerging designers from around the globe. Among the showcases of several avant-garde and contemporary collections, my favourite goes to the elegant reinvented cheongsam designs by homegrown Ong Shunmugam.

There is no denying that I am a big fan of printed clothes and therefore when faced with the avalanche of Spring Summer 2013 Fashion Week information, one question I had in mind was,”What are the printed offerings for the next season?”
Floral, mosaic, digital, silk screen. So many designers, so many inspirations.
I have shortlisted some of my favourite runway prints and do tell me which is your favourite!

If I was expecting anything fantasy and ethereal at the Swarovski show, I was so wrong! This year, the Swarovski team introduced the setting of a rock concert, complete with a live band and a slew of statement, modern pieces. Accompanied by the powerful vocals of Vanessa Fernandez and her band, the audience was treated to a visual and musical feast.
The show started off with some sleek and sharp looks, and gradually intensified to a dramatic presentation as the show continued.2 Comments
Firstly, a brief introduction to FFN: This is a website which allows consumers to pre-order the latest collections from this designers, before the pieces reach the stores. A total of 13 designers – such as Timo Weiland, alldressedup, Suecomma Bonnie are on the platform currently.
Here are some snapshots and a video that I captured at the 2 FFN shows. Of course, the best way to view these collections is to hop over to FFN site.

The second show that I attended at AFF this year was the Atelier Swarovski show, which was quite a pleasant surprise. The first segment was forgettable, but as the lights dimmed and cut-outs of white birds descended from the top, the show transformed to somewhat a mix of dream and glamor with the presentation of the luxurious “Wings of Fantasy” collection.
