My whirlwind Tuesday started with an interview with Ennio Capasa, founder of CoSTUME NATIONAL followed by a conversation between ‘the’ Colin McDowell and Nicola Formichetti at the Asia Fashion Summit 2012. Finally, I freshen up for the big gala night, Audi Red Carpet Night 2012 at Tent@Orchard. What more can I ask for? I was seated at Table 10 next to Formichetti‘s table together with the media and I am all excited to see CoSTUME NATIONAL A/W 2012 collection walk the runway. Let’s not forget the beautiful food served by The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore. The night kicked off with an amazing laser, violin performance followed by the Audi Star Creation 2012 winners showcase. The highlight of the night has to be CoSTUME NATIONAL A/W 2012 show (see my video below for the final walk) as well as the first look of the Audi R8 GT Spyder. What a beauty! The night ended with Julia Abueva belting out Adele’s Rolling in the Deep and Katy Perry’s Fireworks – of course, Formichetti and his friends stood up and cheered for the Spring Awakening star!
Ahh, next up… the opening show for Audi Fashion Festival 2012. Yes, fashion week has officially started.
What am I wearing? Dress: Kinki Gerlinki, Shoes: Minna Parikka, Clutch: Mimco, Necklace: Ranjana Khan, Bracelet: Montblanc and Rings: Montblanc & Cartier.
Minimalism with sexy cuts. CoSTUME NATIONAL A/W 2012 absolutely wowed the crowd.
Inspired by the post-punk period, models strutted down the runway to the pumping music of Joy Division.
CoSTUME NATIONAL A/W 2012 painted the runway in hues of black, navy, grey and a splash of white.
I love the androgynous, post-punk vibe from the collection – and surprisingly, wearable pieces.
The three winners of the Audi Star Creation 2012 showcased their collection last night. Each of them won SGD10,000 from Audi Singapore. Plus, Roderic Wong from China was named Audi Young Designer Award 2012 and received an additional SGD10,000. Congratulations to Ko Youngji (South Korea), Soravit Kaewkamon (Thailand) and of course, Roderic Wong (China). I was seated a little far from the stage – and my camera couldn’t catch a clear photo of the winners.
Audi Singapore revealed the Audi R8 GT Spyder last night and there are only three available in Singapore.
Alright, how can I resist a photo opportunity with Nicola Formichetti and his Nico Panda iPhone case?
Stay tuned for more AFF 2012 updates and of course, Mugler A/W 2012 show tonight.
