the end of every fashion week brings with it it’s own unique set of memories. good or bad, pleasant characters or nasty divas, flashes of inspiration or flat fashion moments, these are the images we take with us when we reminise, years from now. this fashion week will be remembered for the amazing shows by the asian couturiers – the dramatic silhouettes of michael cinco, guo pei, sebastian gunawan and frederick lee ; the inaguration of the asian couture federation ; a fashion reunion with japanese designers junko koshino and keita maruyama ; a lovely surprise by the fab folks from epson and leica, who sent a few printers and a camera our way during pre-production ; the multi-tasking celine tan and her wonderful team, who seem to have mastered the art of being in five places and dealing with ten emergencies all at once, and an amazing bunch of disciplined, punctual and highly professional models, who dealt with badly behaved designers, rude staff and food palavas with the utmost dignity – they were one class act and i take my hat off to them.
a man is only as good as his support, and i am lucky to be surrounded by my dream team – whether it’s fittings at wee hours of the morning, changing cues 2 minutes before curtains up, standing in for missing supermodels at rehearsals or doubling up as impromptu manicurists, they’ve done it all. they are my best memories of fashion week, and i’m happy to have shared many wonderful moments with them.
here’s a round-up of the past 11 days, through our eyes. and now, its off to the next fashion project.
