Three Eco-Fashion designers unveiled their “Fashionable, Ethical And Sustainable” collections at Raffles City on March 26th, in an evening of style, glitz and glamour during this year’s Singapore Fashion Festival.
Creating a fresh, fashion-forward perspective to the region’s most glamourous festival with ECO LUXE ’07, a well-executed “fashion with a conscience” event, the distinctive, sustainable and stylish eco-friendly collections of three internationally-acclaimed designers, namely Peri Drysdale of Untouched World, Sarah Ratty of CIEL (pictured) and Katelyn Aslett from Australia, took centrestage at the opening show for about 200 invited guests, comprising of members of the media, stylists, celebrities and VIPs, along with hundreds of spectators watching from the sides, who were treated to ethical, fashionable options as each designer showcased 15 outfits.
Closing the show was Katelyn Aslett’s soft, ultra-feminine and breathtaking couture collection that led the audience into a fairytale, romantic English garden. Using the ancient process of felting, Katelyn’s spectacular pieces are all hand-made and hand-dyed.
In keeping to ECO LUXE ’07 theme, deep purple, gold and grey colours were used for the stage to reflect a luxurious and sophisticated look with a runway that resembled a growing tree from the aerial view. Even the stage wass eco-friendly! The backdrop screens were made of earth-toned eco-resin panels specially flown in from the United States.
