Asia Fashion Summit starts tomorrow!

Over the next three days, Alex and I will be attending the Asia Fashion Summit.  The Asia Fashion Exchange has become a major event on our calendars every year and one of the four pillar events is the Asia Fashion Summit, a premier conference that will provide insights on fashion topics for industry professionals.  The remaining three pillar events are Blueprint, a trade show that connects emerging designers and international buyers; Audi Fashion Festival Singapore, a showcase of collections and dazzling runway shows by international established and emerging labels; and Star Creation, a regional fashion design competition to support budding fashion talents.  The Asia Fashion Exchange is a joint initiative by the Textile and Fashion Federation of Singapore, Mercury Marketing and Communications and government agencies, International Enterprise Singapore, Singapore Tourism Board and SPRING Singapore.

This year, an exciting line-up of speakers are travelling here to speak on industry trends and best practices at the Asia Fashion Summit.  They include Christopher Burch, entrepreneur and co-founder of American fashion brand Tory Burch and CEO of C.Wonder; Ravi Thakran, Group President of South Asia, South East Asia and West Asia for French luxury giant LVMH; Daniel Saynt, Chief Marketing Consultant, Rebecca Minkoff; Andrea Bonardi, Asia Pacific Managing Director of Italian lingerie brand La Perla; trend analyst Angelia Teo of WGSN; Sarah Curran, CEO of and Nobuyuki-Ota, Executive Managing Director of Japanese department store Matsuya.
