SINGAPORE – Get your fashion fix without having to leave home by tuning in to Singapore’s Virtual Fashion Festival, The Front Row.
A free-to-watch, seasonless, inclusive, 10-day fashion event, The Front Row, will have virtual runway shows, fashion films and presentations on a 360-degree 3D platform, as well as interactive workshops you can do online and fashion chats with some of the most interesting fashion industry people in Asia.
Visit a virtual Lion City
Singapore already has a reputation for looking like a city of the future - thanks Westworld - but now it really will be. The ‘virtual location’ of The Front Row is a candy-coloured world of iconic landmarks tricked out for the digital imagination offering different spaces like the Gallery and the Coffeeshop where you can do different things - check out fashion photography, or listen to industry insiders talk about the issues fashion is facing. There is even a virtual Orchard Road of sorts with the Designer Hall where you can directly link to buy the pieces from each designer.
The highlight of the chats will be listening to Minju Kim, the South Korean fashion designer who was the winner of the first season of Netflix's Next In Fashion. She is bubbly and cheerful, but also well aware of what’s happening globally in fashion right now. Don’t miss her conversation!
You will also be able to find out what makes Singapore designers tick with intimate chats with each designer after their shows and their thoughts on being a part of this rollercoaster industry.
Likewise, the designers will be showing off their skills with hands-on workshops that will cover styling tips, plus information on how to be more sustainable, eco-friendly and ethical when it comes to fashion. And if that’s not enough, there will also be surprise giveaways throughout the 10-day event.
What more could you want? Fashion, freebies and fun.
