As will Jonathan Saunders and Tsumori Chisato.
Cities like Berlin, Tokyo and Sydney boast enough local talent recognized internationally to draw a small-but-influential pool of editors and buyers from the US, Europe and still-growing luxury markets including Russia, South America and of course, Asia. But when a city like Singapore throws a fashion week, there's got to be more to it than industry buzz. There's got to be a consumer angle.
Unlike the Big Four fashion weeks, events like Audi's Fashion Festival Singapore are a mix of local designers launching their latest collections and international designers showing theirs for a second time to a new audience.

If you've ever read Advanced Style, one of my favorite blogs, then you're probably familiar with Iris Apfel. Iris is without a doubt one of New York's most treasured style icons, darting around the city in her trademark spectacles, decked out in accessories while remaining light and effortless. At Monday's CFDA awards, Ms. Apfel told the story of how she once worked for WWD and earned a salary of $15 per week. True, that was a standard wage back then but we still shudder to think about it. After her time at WWD she began working in the textile industry where she further honed her style and sharp eye for prints, textures and patterns--it's no wonder she has unmatched style. Before presenting Alexander Wang with his Accessories Designer of the Year award, Ms. Apfel proclaimed that she is indeed a fan of the accessory. All it takes is a Google image search to see that she wasn't lying.
PARIS--Tsumori Chisato’s fantasy world is about to conquer French children’s fashion. In December, she will launch a childrenswear line in collaboration with Petit Bateau (a bourgeois, micro-sized American Apparel). The line, to be sold in Petit Bateau boutiques, will include pieces for babies, children, and--phew!--adult-sized garments, too. Fashionista.com met up with her, got a sneaky preview of her Francophile designs, and talked children’s fashion, her love for stripes, and the future of her label.
