Back for the seventh year running, Fashion Steps Out is the big fashionista show festival in Singapore hitting the streets this spring. Style hunter that you are, you have had this showstopping event in your calendar for months. The six weeks of fashion-forward events start with a big hitter—Singapore’s longest runway fashion show. The show’s runway spans over 660 metres and stretches down Orchard Road. Both local and international designers will showcase their Spring/Summer collections, thanks to over 130 models who will strut their stuff down the mall-lined streets. Daniel Boey, dubbed the ‘Godfather of Singapore Fashion’ (and who made Asia fashion history by bringing Men’s and Women’s Fashion Week to Singapore for the first time in 2011), will be the director of this year’s fashion show. This event truly stops traffic, as Orchard Road will be closed off to vehicles.
You and every fashionista you know will be flocking to this spectacular festival in Singapore for a peek at what’s hot. Will thigh-high, stiletto-heeled boots be the must-have trend, or are flats in season this spring? Blossom prints or bare shoulders? Maybe it will be ruffles, jeans, or silver. Some attendees will be there for the glam, but others will be there to rub shoulders with regional artists and personalities like JJ Lin, VJ Danie, Min Chen, and Laureen Uy. Don’t miss your chance to miss this multifarious line-up.
There will be fabulous fashion parties, swanky fringe events, and phenomenal give-aways too. It’s a must-attend extravaganza, guaranteed to give you the chance to add the perfect pieces to your wardrobe. This street-side fashion festival in Singapore has been described as one of the few places you can seemingly buy the clothes straight off the models’ backs, thanks to the pop-up stores where runway collections are available immediately to buy. Labels this year include Mash-Up, Phantaci, (a new label by Asian pop icon Jay Chou), Raffles Privato, Sean & Sheila, Fox Kids & Baby, Thomas Wee, and Uniqlo Lifewear.
Included for your viewing pleasure are some quirky events like the Knit in the City at Wisma Atria, where Adeline Loo’s knitscape installation will be displayed. This zestful showcase is complete with a fully knitted giant backdrop, headpiece, and train, dressed-up with giant knitting needles.
So come fervidly armed with your camera, an energy bar, and credit card. Throw on your most smashing outfit and be ready to mingle with other fashion enthusiasts!
