Singapore – This year’s theme for ICON Ball is “The Future is Here” and Raffles Singapore is proud to be at the frontier of fashion with Raffles Fashion Designer, Recipient of the President Designer Award, and founder of fashion labels Mu and A.W.O.L, Mr Alfie LEONG’s design donned by social elite Madam Susanne KANG! Her customised cream-coloured jumpsuit turned heads with the multi-coloured light-emitting diode (LED) lights lining her outfit. Madam Kang, who was named one of the Top 20 Best Dressed women of the night, talked about how her inspiration was “science meets arts”, and “I believe future fashion pushes boundaries.”
Joining Alfie is Ms Irene HO, Raffles Fashion Designer and founder of The Atelier. Irene designed a silver outfit for Madam Fanti SOENARDY, who was also crowned one of the Top 20 Best Dressed ladies.
In support of a budding fashion designer, Ms Lynn YEOW De Vito, voted for Best Dressed for 2016 and 2017, collaborated with Yanlin TAO Willa. Willa’s design is a deliberate integration of the masculine cut for the coat, with a flowy silhouette, which is reflective of Ms Yeow’s roles and personality. The use of a single element – sequins – in various shapes and shines is to unveil her wit and versatility towards situations modern ladies will face in the future.
Raffles Singapore would like to thank Madam Kang, Madam Soenardy, and Ms Lynn YEOW De Vito for supporting Raffles Fashion Designers!
