Chinese designer Guo Pei opened Singapore Fashion Week with a 34-piece collection heavy on tassels, embroidered trains and brocade.
The five-day event is taking place on the main stage at the National Gallery Singapore and showcases 20 designers, all from Asia.
Beijing-based Guo found fame in the West when she designed THAT yellow-embroidered, fur-trimmed dress and cape for Rihanna to wear at the Metropolitan Museum gala in May 2015.
Other designers showing in Singapore include Indian-American Naeem Khan and Thai star Sheranut “Namcha” Yusananda, who will unveil her label Sheranut.
There are also 13 home-grown designers featured.
For the first time, shoppers can buy selected looks from Singaporean designers seen on the festival’s catwalks immediately at online retailer Zalora.sg and at the SGFW & Co pop-up at the National Gallery.
