When it comes to international new talent, the work of the students at Raffles College of Design and Commerce is the place to keep on your radar.
With colleges all over the Asia Pacific region, the Raffles International Showcase this year at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia took their best graduates and gave them a platform to show their collections. With so many designers you can be sure to see a wide range of styles, designs and genres, so it’s definitely a show to keep an eye out for if you want variety.
The Raffles International Showcase is one of the most hotly anticipated shows for this very reason, so it should come as no surprise that the talented designers who showcased this year will have seriously bright futures ahead of them.
Aiming to disrupt and innovate the fashion industry, the Raffles International Showcase featured the Resort ’19 collections from seven Raffles graduates, displaying ready-to-wear pieces including womenswear, contemporary menswear, couture design, and streetwear.
Featured designers included Carley Bishop (Carley Rose The Label), Ginan Tabbouch (GTAB), Ingrid Husodo (INGRID HUSODO), Ken Quoc Khang Nguyen & Tiana Ha Phuong Thao Van (VALUSTA x 10/10), Leah Williams (Leah Williams), Mary Thanh-Ngan Quach & Alexandra Uyen Nguyen (A.M.), and Vivian Tung (VIVIANTUNG).
