One of the highlighted designers to be attending and speaking this year is New York based, Jason Wu who has dressed the likes of Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Moore. He will be speaking at the Fashion Tech Summit called ‘ZIPCODE’, a new component of SGFW 2017 that will be complementing the runway shows and after-parties. It’s a platform to discuss all things fashion. ZIPCODE helps fashion designers speak out about their brand as well as chance for integral business networking to take place. Social media superstars, Nicole Warne and Shini Park will also be speaking in the panel that is moderated by BAZAAR’s very own Editor-In-Chief, Kenneth Goh.
