This year, the Digital Fashion Week teamed up with the LOTI Group for the first time for the LOTI International Fashion Festival that was held from May 29 to 31 at CHIJMES. Catwalk shows were held on all three days at the festival.
This festival is positioned as an exchange platform for Singapore and Chinese fashion. As such, a number of Chinese designers made rare appearances at the event. Ji Wenbo, considered a top-notch designer in China, was in Singapore with his solo show on the first day. Models at the festival also walked down the runway in joint shows that showcased the creations of other designers like Sicong Liu, Ma Anya, Yu Chaoqun, Qiu Zihao and Cici Cheung.
Apart from providing Chinese designers the opportunity to showcase their work outside of Greater China, the festival gave local designers a shot at accessing the Chinese market. Local designer Max Tan sent his models down the runway in a solo show on Day 2, with simple designs that come with bold silhouettes.
The closing show on the third night featured the parent-and-child designs of Vicky’Z in a show exclusively presented by Lianhe Zaobao. The young models of the show were the centre of attention the moment they stepped onto the runway. They clearly revelled in the attention, while their parents, seated below, were a bundle of nerves. But not so nervous that they could not take plenty of photographs of the tots. And the parents were, at the same time, providing a running commentary of the catwalk action while exclaiming, “How cute”. It was a true show both on and off the catwalk.
Another surprise on the closing night was a catwalk show of Chinese designer Alice Yu’s designs by 10 well-known socialites from Singapore, Macau, Xiamen and Paris, including Hu Yuli, founder and director of Yuli Inc, and Pan Lin, a director and health consultant.
A charity auction was also held on the closing night, with items such as paintings, rare wines, jewellery, hotel stays and dining vouchers donated by the organisers, sponsors and celebrities going under the hammer. Local artiste Chen Hanwei also contributed to the auction with a beautiful handmade book he created himself. Response to the auction was enthusiastic and a total of $107,200 was raised by the end of the evening. Half of the amount will be donated to Beyond Social Services, a local charity that seeks to help disadvantaged children, youth and families.
