SATURDAY, 16 MAY
The LASALLE Graduate Fashion Show 2015 marks the grand finale of an artistic education in creativity and imagination. As part of Singapore Fashion Week 2015, 15 students from 4 different specialisms will present their graduate collections, starting their transformation into professional artists within the larger creative industries’ ecosystem.
Celebrating the Silver Jubilee, the graduates have drawn inspiration from the cultural and historical heritage of Singapore. Each collection responds to a different context or aspect of Singapore, demonstrating the changes in visual culture over the last 50 years through a narrative told from a fashion perspective.

The show is a platform for the best emerging talent from the region to present their stunning, curated designs to an audience of fashion editors, buyers and other industry cognoscenti.
10 designers from 5 countries will participate and be judged by the editors of the 5 Asian editions of Harper’s Bazaar. The winner will receive a scholarship to Istituto Marangoni, regional exposure in all 5 editions and retail online to a global audience through Inverted Edge.
