Unconventional is the new chic. Adorning their reception with lemons instead of flowers made the event more memorable.

#Fashion Steps Out 2015 Part 1

Latest trends

Taking street style to a whole new level, Fashion Steps Out 2015 took over Singapore’s famed Orchard Road and wowed the whole crowd by taking glamour and high fashion closer to the people. This annual event celebrates all the best in global trends and marries it with Singaporean fashion. I love how Fashion Steps Out gives fashionistas and style lovers a more exciting way to experience and see fashion in action by taking it to the streets, and Orchard Road is certainly the best venue for such an illustrious celebration of fashion.

Everybody knows that Orchard Road is the mecca for shopping as well as an amazing place to spot trends and to see fashionistas at their sartorial best. The road is shut down for the day, and it becomes all about fashion and high-watt glamour. Traffic stops and the sidewalks and roads become filled with models sashaying down this long runway while fashion fans watch from the sides and take social media snaps. How can you resist such an awesome event? I personally loved every minute of it! If you missed the event (make sure to catch it next year!), here are some of my personal snap shots of the event.

Max.Tan

Sharp lines and angles. Crisp and clean silhouettes. It was all about modernity, minimalism and geometry at ultra hip label’s Max.Tan’s show. If you love edgy fashion, you will certainly love this brand’s aesthetic. This all white collection is meant for those who walk on the more daring side of fashion, a capsule wardrobe perfect for doing the white on white trend.

DEPRESSION

Filled with youthful angst, Depression is about the historically inherent subversive and anarchic and rebellious side of fashion. Urban and provocative, this collection isn’t for the faint of heart.

Pleatation 

The name says it all. This collection from Pleatation takes a tailoring we all know and love, pleating, and transforms it into a full runway presentation where every single piece is fit for the most glitzy red carpet events. A fully pleated pantsuit and fully pleated gowns showed off the timeless elegance of pleating, especially when placed beside contemporary origami detailing and brocade foil prints. Whether done in sheer, flowing fabrics or with more structured material, Pleatation’s designs shine and look ever so stunning.
