Bold, intricate, head-turning designs will dominate the Amber Lounge Singapore Fashion Show catwalk on September 15, with local talents Nida Shay and Q Menswear hand-picked as this year’s designers. An electrifying runway display with edgy style and an incredibly entertaining show will take place at the exotic Asian destination, followed by an unforgettable weekend of Amber Lounge’s iconic parties.
International models will showcase Nida Shay’s elegant signature womenswear looks, with breath-taking, hand-embroidered pieces to fit Amber Lounge’s crystal theme which marks its 15thAnniversary in 2018. Shay’s colourful career spans Paris, the Middle-East and Asia where she is now one of Singapore’s most vibrant designers thanks to her stunning embellished creations.
Drivers will swap their race suits for bespoke evening suits by Han San of Q Menswear. Tailored to accentuate the personality of the modern gentleman the chic brand boasts one of the top men’s lifestyle stores in Singapore, favouring Italian fabrics with a soft, slim cut.
Iconic luxury brand CHANEL will also be displaying their stunning Monsieur Haute Horlogerie range to Amber Lounge guests on the night. Their fine watchmaking and technical excellence will be admired and celebrated at the most sought-after F1 party destination.
The display will compliment Amber Lounge’s new interior which has been transformed following its 15th Anniversary. Sleek black sofas and enormous chandeliers create a new elegant but sultry vibe.
With charity at the heart of every Amber Lounge Fashion Show we’re also thrilled to announce Make-A-Wish Singapore as the beneficiary for the second year in a row.
As one of the most anticipated events of the Singapore Grand Prix weekend, Make-a-Wish Singapore will be a central focus of the Fashion Show. Generous donations from the silent auction will light up the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions by granting their ultimate wish.
The Fashion Show kicks off a glamorous weekend of endless entertainment and euphoric nights at Amber Lounge, the biggest and most exclusive F1 parties in town. World-famous personalities and VIP guests, including leading figures from Formula 1, CEOs of global companies and other generous bidders will come together and support Make-A-Wish Singapore. A range of iconic items and money-can’t-buy experiences have been donated.
Make-A-Wish Foundation International has brought to life the wishes of over 415,000 children in 40 countries, making it the largest wish-granting organisation in the world. In April 2002, the Singapore affiliate launched and has now made over 1,300 children’s wishes a reality. The charity has the incredible goal of reaching every medically eligible child in Singapore.
Sonia Irvine, CEO of Amber Lounge, said: “I have always wanted to help people in need. Since 2006, the first of our Fashion Shows, the Amber Lounge brand is used to raise awareness and much-needed money for noble causes. Creating the Fashion Show is the thing I am most proud of because I see people willing to help our cause and donate funds for the different charity campaigns. I’m incredibly excited to once again team up with Make-a-Wish Singapore to help brighten the lives of sick children and grant many more wishes. Having two children of my own, this charity is very special to me and promotes a cause that is close to my heart.”
Nida Shay said: “I am thrilled to be the headline designer in the Amber Lounge Fashion Show this year. It’s a fabulous star-studded evening full of glitz and glamour and great music with incredible international exposure. Undeniably one of the best and most anticipated events to take place in Singapore which is why I am so excited to be part of it.”
The night will begin with black carpet arrivals followed by the Fashion Show. Giant methusalems of Cuvée Carbon, the official Champagne of Formula 1, will feature as centerpieces on the most desired guest tables in the room to kick off the SATURDAY EXTRAVAGANZA after party. International DJs, dancers and headline sets from a world-famous act,to be announced soon, will ensure an electric atmosphere on the dancefloor until sunrise.
