Check out ACM’s first display of contemporary Singapore fashion, exploring creative practice in Singapore in the context of Asia’s cultural heritage. Branded #SGFASHIONNOW, the showcase is presented in collaboration with LASALLE College of the Arts’ School of Fashion and the Textile and Fashion Federation (TaFF) – a result of ACM’s first tripartite partnership within Singapore’s fashion ecosystem.
At #SGFASHIONNOW, you can encounter cross-cultural works and fashion-forward ideas by Singapore designers organized in two sections: the first is the curtain-raiser display ACM x TaFF, where four ensembles by Singapore-based finalists of fashion design competition Singapore Stories 2020 are on show at the ACM Lobby; the second, ACM x LASALLE, showcases works by eight practicing local designers, including established professionals Andrew Gn, Goh Lai Chan, and Priscilla Shunmugam, whose works are mounted alongside Singapore Stories 2020 winner Carol Chen’s debut creation.
#SGFASHIONNOW is part of ACM’s focus on presenting innovation in the space of tradition, with the aim of sparking conversations around cross-cultural Asian identities, heritage, and craftsmanship.
In conjunction with the exhibition, members of the public can look forward to a series of student curator tours, interactive activities, and workshops focusing on fashion, craft, and design – available online and on-site. Entry is free for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents. For more information, visit www.acm.org.sg and follow the hashtags: #SGFASHIONNOW and #INNOVATIONINTRADITION.
