Singapore, 23 April 2012 – SPH Magazines Pte Ltd’s (SPH Magazines) two leading women’s fashion magazines Female and Nuyou once again present their signature event - Female and Nuyou Catwalk - on April 25, 2012. This year’s fashion show will feature Italian label REDValentino, and will be held at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station – the first event to be held there since the station was closed.
The annual runway show has always been one of the highlights of the local fashion scene, and is known for being held at unique locations not usually associated with catwalk shows.
From having a 163m catwalk in Orchard Road (the longest ever in Singapore) to venues such as the Formula One Pit Building and Changi Airport’s T3 when it was newly opened, Female and Nuyou Catwalk events have always pushed the boundaries. This year is no different, with a hip new venue at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.
The brand on show this year: REDValentino, the diffusion label of Italian house Valentino. Introduced in 2004, RED (which stands for Romantic Eccentric Dress) shares the same feminine aesthetic as the main brand, but with a more contemporary, casual spin. The event will showcase forty looks from its Spring/Summer 2012 collection, from romantic gowns to ladylike jackets in the brand’s signature colourful floral prints and fine embroidered details.
Jeanette Ejlersen, Female’s creative editor, said: “Female and Nuyou Catwalk is turning the spotlight on a single news-making brand. This year, we’re working with REDValentino, the baby in the Valentino stable, as it expands into Asia.”
Nuyou’s editor, Grace Lee, said: “Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have revamped REDValentino and given it a new energy. They understand what women want now – creative flair and good workmanship at good price point, which mirrors the DNA of Nuyou in believing that everyone can be stylish.”
SPH Magazines general manager, Diana Lee, said: “Our annual catwalk show is a signature fashion event that reinforces Female and Nuyou’s positions as the leading fashion-forward magazines in Singapore. The partnership with leading brands provides advertisers with an effective and exclusive showcase for their products and services.”
More than 400 invited VIP guests are expected at the fashion party of the season. The event is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, CIMB bank, Canon, L’Oreal Professionnel, Salon Hair Philosophy, M.A.C, Toshiba Notebook, and Kiehl’s.
