Fashion Futures Announces Six Singapore Designers To Participate In The 2017 Edition of Fashion Futures 1.0
Fashion Futures 1.0, a mentoring and development programme designed to support the next generation of Singapore fashion designers, is back this year with new and exciting changes.
This year, upon completion of Fashion Futures 1.0, one designer will be selected by the mentors to participate in Fashion Futures 2.0, where he or she will join the 2.0 designers on the CFDA Immersion Trip to New York. The selected designers will be introduced to the New York fashion industry through visits to the studios of CFDA designers, meetings with e- commerce partners and behind-the-scenes access to manufacturing facilities, fashion incubators and more.
The selected 1.0 designer will also open a multi-label show at Singapore Fashion Week 2017 come October. In hopes of providing more local designers with the opportunity to participate in the programme, Fashion Futures has introduced two new product categories – menswear and accessories.
With that, Fashion Futures is pleased to announce the six local designers chosen to participate in the 2017 Fashion Futures 1.0:
Angie Lai-Tay of ALT (Accessories)
Matthew Gideon of Deboneire (Menswear)
Nida Tahir Shaheryar of NIDA SHAY (Womenswear)
