It’s that time of the year again, where we mentor 12 aspiring fashion designers as part of our BAZAAR NewGen Fashion Award.

Last week, we held a one-day workshop where our finalists had the privilege of getting insights on the industry from Debra Langley (venture partner with Start Today Ventures), Marco Ferrari (Zalora’s category manger), Stefanie Block (Zalora’s director of buying), Phuay Li Ying (Ying The Label), Windy Aulia (Harper’s Bazaar Singapore’s creative director), Yoyo Cao (Fashion entrepreneur and social media mogul) and India Plumbly (head of atelier) and Ng Yu Ting (senior fashion executive) from Swarovski, our valued longterm NewGen partners.
