the new paper new face competition is an annual model search organised by singapore publication the new paper. celebrating it’s 21st anniversary in 2013, the new paper comes of age with an impressive resume, having discovered the likes of international model and singapore’s current it girl vivien ong, runway queen sara chan, the current face of giordano sharin keong, actresses jayley woo, julie tan and dawn yeoh, as well as beauty queens colleen francisca and rachel kum.
my team and i have been conceptualising and producing the new face show for the past 12 years, and this year promises to be the biggest and most extravagant yet. with fashion collections from asian labels revasseur, l’ile aux ashby and joe chia, accessories by frederick lee, and a preview of the season’s new looks from sponsors levis and newlook, it looks set to be an explosion of colour and textures.
here are some behind-the-scene pics from the fittings and rehearsals.
rehearsals have ended. it’s goodnight for now. join me again tomorrow for the follow-up post on the show and the crowning of singapore’s newest fashion face !
