singaporeans were treated to the dramatic theatrics of japanese label DRESSCAMP when they presented their collection inspired by “The Threepenny Opera” by german dramatist bertolt brecht and composer kurt weill, juxtaposed with the decadence of Italian theatre, opera and cinema director luchino visconti.
DRESSCAMP made it’s debut in 2002 with it’s fresh, innovative, delicate yet powerful collections, injected with distinctive expressions of color, printed materials and unique decorativeness, and incorporating handcrafted couture techniques. the collections are helmed by designer toshikazu iwaya, who graduated from the prestigeous bunka fashion college in japan. DRESSCAMP received the award for best newcomer at the 22nd mainichi fashion grand prix in 2004 as well as the shiseido incentive award and the 6th moet & chandon new designer award. the DRESSCAMP show was hosted by the parco group and attracted a full house crowd of industry personalities, celebrities, fashion aficionados and fans. my team and i, including producers bryan gamboa, dominic min clarke and ryan tan, and stylists audrey ong and fairul shah, were joined by fashion legends thomas wee, frederick lee and david wang in the front row, where we sat, agog in amzement at the wonderous collection.
