Samsung Invites YOU to Audi Fashion Festival – Tsumori Chisato AW2013

 Singapore’s annual premier fashion event, Audi Fashion Festival (AFF) returns for its 5th year bigger and bolder. Grandly celebrating its anniversary, the festival will be hosted from 15 to 19 May at the Marina Promenade, against the backdrop of the Singapore skyline. This year, the festival will be co-located with the Blueprint Tradeshow and Emporium, Asian Summit and Audi Star Creation at the waterfront and looks set to be more exhilarating and electrifying than ever before.

Themed ‘Crafting the Future’, this year’s festival will span a total of 5 days, featuring a mix of emerging and established top-class names from the international world of fashion and glamorous after-parties with headlining international acts, giving prominence to excellent artistry that will pave the way for the future.

The chosen theme for this year’s event, ‘Crafting the Future’ echoes the shared belief of all involved. […], the designers presenting their creations at the shows are offering their vision for the future.

– Mr. Jeff Mannering, Managing Director of Audi Singapore

In the spirit of the theme, AFF has chosen Singapore’s two most iconic models to star in the campaign – Supermodel Sheila Sim who has been featured in campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Loewe, Tiffany & Co. and Shanghai Tang and up-and-coming star Vivien Ong who recently graced the cover of February’s ELLE Italia and walked the runway of Paris Fashion Week.

Shot by Singapore’s renowned fashion photographer, Joel Lim, the campaign photoshoot remained sleek and modern, focusing on craftsmanship as Sheila and Vivien are accessorised with intricate cuffs and collars from Indonesian label, Toton, aligning the festival’s stance on supporting Asian designers. The captivating make-up on both models are designed by make-up label, NARS, featuring an edgy & futuristic look, with strong eyes and bold colours being the focus. Both models’ identical asymmetrical chin-length bobs, created by Redken, lend the campaign image a futuristic edge.
