Asian Beauty Graces The Catwalk



21st March , Singapore - The Singapore Fashion Festival is renowned for being one of Asia-Pacific’s most exciting fashion events for international and local designers, retailers and the public at large. This year’s Festival, presented by MasterCard and made possible by the Singapore Tourism Board, will take this excitement to another level with the celebration of Asian beauty.

Asian beauty is being celebrated worldwide and some of the most influential brand campaigns are featuring a culturally diverse mix of Asia’s beauties as their hallmark ambassadors. The Singapore Fashion Festival 2007 is committed to bringing to festival-goers some of the most elegant and professional top international Asian models the world has ever seen, hand-picked from around the region. Ai Tominaga is one of the word’s leading supermodels. She has appeared on the runway for some of the world’s leading designers including John Galliano, Vivienne Tam, Anna Sui, Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, Gucci, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Dolce and Gabbana, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier and Valentino. With her tall feminine form, she has in a few short years reached the modelling elite.

An editorial favourite, Ai has appeared in many leading international fashion magazines including Vogue (American, French, British, Japanese, Russian and German), Harper’s BAZAAR , iD and been photographed by influential fashion leaders such as Anne Leibovitz, Nick Knight, Steven Meisel, Ellen von Unwerth, Mert and Marcus and Peter Lindbergh. She has featured in campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci and Banana Republic and was also in the 2004 Pirelli Calendar.

Anne Watanabe is yet another confirmed internationally in-demand model to grace the catwalk at this year’s Festival, and will walk the closing show - Matthew Williamson. One of Japan’s rising stars in the fashion world, Anne is the daughter of Japan’s most successful actor of recent times, Ken Watanabe.

Born in Tokyo and at just 22 years of age, Anne already boasts an impressive portfolio. Anne was the Fashion Editors Choice (FEC) model of the year in 2006 and has appeared in campaigns for Anna Sui. She has graced the catwalks for Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, Louis Vuitton, Viktor & Rolf and Karl Lagerfeld to name just a few. At the recent Fall/Winter Collection showcase in Milan, Anne closed the Aigner show, which is one of the exciting participating brands for the Singapore Fashion Festival 2007.

With an impressive pedigree behind them both, Ai Tominaga and Anne Watanabe are set to become the hallmark ambassadors for Singapore Fashion Festival 2007.

The Singapore Fashion Festival 2007 is presented by MasterCard and is made possible by the Singapore Tourism Board. The Singapore Fashion Festival is one of the many Uniquely Singapore events by the Singapore Tourism Board. It is the first regional consumer-focused fashion event where Autumn/Winter collections are previewed and Spring/Summer collections are made directly available from the catwalk to consumers. Since its inception in 2001, the Singapore Fashion Festival has become one of Asia’s key fashion events.
