Acclaimed as the fashion event of the year, the five-day Singapore Fashion Week (SFW) 2015 in May was one of the best editions yet. Headlining the event at the Tent @ Orchard at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza were the inimitable Diane von Furstenberg and British style icon Victoria Beckham, who opened and closed the festival respectively. In between, Thai-American designer Thakoon Panichgul and Australian designer Dion Lee showcased their latest collections, as did homegrown labels Dzojchen and Ong Shunmugam. SFW chairman Tjin Lee also invited Von Furstenberg, Panichgul and Lee to participate in the Fashion Talks, held at LaSalle College of the Arts, to share their fashion journey and advice on surviving in the industry. But of course, the highlight of the fashion week was the private parties.
