Seven emerging fashion stars from around Asia-Pacific have dazzled at this year’s Raffles International Showcase, held at Carriageworks on Thursday 16th April for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) 2015.
The runway show celebrated the most promising alumni from Raffles College of Design and Commerce in Sydney, and Raffles College of Higher Education in Singapore. Five of the up-and-coming fashion talents were graduates from Raffles Sydney while their two counterparts were from the Raffles Singapore campus.
Raffles is the only international college to show at MBFWA 2015; and has been a part of the annual event since 2011. “The Raffles show this year was an absolute knockout,” said Mr. Nicholas Comino, Program Director of Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing at Raffles Sydney, “The chosen designers have an incredibly bright future ahead of them and the standard of work is a testament to the talent and dedication of Raffles students internationally.”
Each of the Raffles designers showed a 10-piece ready-to-wear collection for Spring-Summer 15/16 at the Runway of Carriageworks. Collections included innovative women’s wear, contemporary menswear, couture design, and tailoring.
Since joining the official MBFWA program, the Raffles International Showcase has been widely recognised by the industry as one of the most important and entertaining events on the Sydney fashion calendar.
“We were thrilled to see our alumni to be featured amongst other high calibre Australian designers in the 20th MBFWA,” Mr. Comino commented. 'We're looking forward to many more successful shows in the years to come."
