VICTORIA Beckham will close Singapore Fashion Week. The 40-year-old fashion designer will show her A/W 2015 collection – which she debuted in New York last month – in May and has been given the all important final slot to round off the event.
The brunette beauty – who recently announced plans to open her second store in Hong Kong – will be joined at Singapore Fashion Week by fellow designer Diane Von Furstenberg, who is set to kick off the shows on May 14, with her own A/W 2015 line, reports WWD.
Singapore Fashion Week has also collaborated with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), which is led by Diane, 68, to help promote the event and create a platform of exposure for the country’s home grown talent.
Singapore Fashion Week’s chairman, Tjin Lee said of the designers: “They’re very different but have a huge amount of respect for each other. They’re equally inspiring women.
“Singapore Fashion Week allows us to stand shoulder to shoulder with all the international fashion labels that we aspire to be like.”
Actress Cate Blanchett is also set to attend the event. â€“ Bang Media
