Back for its fourth installment, Digital Fashion Week begins today— and will run over the weekend at Capitol Theatre in Singapore.
Fashion meets digital once again at Digital Fashion Week (DFW) Singapore for the fourth year in a row. The four-day extravaganza kicks off from today to 1 November 2015 at the newly revamped Capitol Theatre, and will feature a series of online and offline activities to celebrate both emerging and established designers from Asia and on the global platform.
Themed Digital Fashion Week Singapore: Asia-Euro Exchange, this year’s line-up, in collaboration with British Council and Alliance française, will see both local designers like MASH-UP, MAX.TAN and CYC The Custom Shop, as well as international labels like Seoul Chic Bazaar from Korea, and Teatum Jones from the United Kingdom.

VIPs from the UK and France, such as TV presenter Billie JD Porter, and Fabien Constant, producer and film director of “Mademoiselle C” will also grace the events. DFW Insiders – social media influencers from all around the world including Andrea Chong (Singapore), Maddi Bragg (USA), Diana Rikasari (Indonesia), Hass Murad (Australia) and more – will set the pace for the digital-centric event.
On his take on DFW, the world’s first ever live streamed fashion week where viewers can buy pieces straight off the runway, Constant — who worked with renowned fashion editor Carine Roitfeld in his film — says: “The title of this event says it all. The digital world has completely changed the world of fashion. We used to have to wait before a show… now it’s much advanced, much more interactive, and much more fast (sic).
(As soon as) the first model is out on the catwalk, the picture is everywhere in the world instantaneously. This completely changed the way of producing fashion and curating fashion.”
