Fashion Inspiration from Asia: Digital Fashionweek Singapore

Typically, most eyes are on New York, Paris or Milan for Fashion when it comes to Fashionweeks. Let’s turn our heads toward another direction for a moment: To Asia and Fashionweek Singapore! Lots of innovation and inspiration just went over the runways and their digital website this month. A few impressions:












Pretty amazing, right?

Vogue Italia November 2015 – Gigi Hadid Editorial

American model Gigi Hadid, who recently also walked for Victoria’s Secret, rocks the November issue of Vogue Italia with a colorful editorial called “The Power of Personality”. The shoot brings Hollywood divas and soul music sirens to life – inspiring not only through their beauty and style, but also their female super powers.

We can’t get enough of this shoot!











This collaboration is not only eye candy, but seems to also strongly reflect the current Zeitgeist. Remember how women used to be mere accessories back in the first James Bond movies and in Mad Men’s early seasons (which fairly accurately depict the women’s role in society back then)? Today, women around the world are independent, strong and on the rise. We predict that we’ll see more and more of this vibe in future fashion editorials. Smart fashion brands will tap into this emotion and slowly move away from showing women as mere eye candy and sex symbols, but as women with power and personality, ready to conquer the world.

Bring it on!
