Time Out Singapore - - Shopping & Style -

THE THIRD AN­NUAL AirAsia Run­way Ready De­signer Search (AARRDS) has an­nounced two fi­nal­ists to rep­re­sent Sin­ga­pore at the re­gional Grand Fi­nale in Kuala Lumpur next month. Fash­ion de­sign stu­dents Sil Vu Minh Duc and Fedri are in the run­ning to show­case a cap­sule col­lec­tion that’ll de­but on the run­way at KL Fash­ion Week Ready to Wear 2018 (KLFW RTW).

The com­pe­ti­tion’s ten- city au­di­tion stop around ten ASEAN coun­tries prom­ises the win­ning de­signer $8,000 to be put to­wards de­vel­op­ing a col­lec­tion as well as a six-page fash­ion spread in AirAsia’s in­flight mag­a­zine, Trav­el3Sixty.

Au­di­tions in April drew par­tic­i­pants from LASALLE Col­lege of the Arts, Nanyang Acad­emy of Fine Arts, Raf­fles De­sign In­sti­tute and yet more, but Vu and Fedri stood out for their cre­ativ­ity, orig­i­nal­ity, con­sis­tency, prac­ti­cal­ity and ad­her­ence to the ASEAN theme.

The Sin­ga­pore judg­ing panel – among them fash­ion de­sign­ers and edi­tors – were joined by AirAsia Sin­ga­pore CEO Lo­gan Ve­laitham and KLFW RTW founder An­drew Tan. Next month’s grand fi­nale will also fea­ture de­sign­ers from In­dia, Ja­pan, China, South Korea and Aus­tralia.
