The Singapore Fashion Festival

Now that the Fashion Festival has come to Singapore, I’m sure that it has somewhat garnered up quite a fair amount of hype, with special inserts in newspapers just to cover the main event. Well, I for one, am glad for something like this to hit our shores, mainly because I feel that it is great in general for the fashion scene in Singapore.

I think over the past few years there has been a growing shift in the way the street fashion has been heading. I’m not trained in talking about this, so you guys gotta forgive me if I seem to be talking about things that I don’t seem qualified to talk about. However, I’ve noticed that there is a a fair amount of diversity on our streets nowadays (just take a walk along town on a weekend), different colours and styles, and that is a good thing indeed. Personally I feel that the best stage of fashion is when mixing and matching colours and styles don’t matter any longer, and people wear what they feel like wearing, even if it looks downright hedious to others. Right now, it seems like people buy and wear clothes, just to be seen, and to a certain extent, it feels somewhat fake. Well, I have to admit that I’m guilty of that too.

I guess the fallback of buying clothes for the sake of looking good will produce a certain kind of uniformity in terms of style, in the sense that one ends up wearing what’s ‘in’ for the season. Of course, I’m not discounting those who dress themselves differently and still look good. So the bottom line is really : wear what you are comfortable with, and what you think really reflects your inner self.

All in all, I really hope that more events like this will continue to hit our shores, and that the fashion sense in the streets will continue to mature, so that one day, we can add the terms ‘fashionable’ to the other sights of our city.
