20140512-230338.jpgCarmen and Natasha were lucky enough to be invited to Audi Star Creation showdown, which is part of the Audi Fashion Festival, a much anticipated fashion event of the year in Singapore! This year, Audi Star Creation featured 12 super talented designers from the region who battled it out to take home take home S$10,000 each, a one-year internship with leading fashion retailer F J Benjamin, and the opportunity to launch their maiden capsule collection next year.

Natasha was wearing a white shirt from Brooks Brothers, skirt from ASOS, Jimmy Choo lizard skin peep toes, and a black Chanel boy bag.

20140512-230407.jpgOkay, just another quick photo before the show starts! 20140512-230352.jpgWe have so many favorites and we’re very proud of the tremendous talent possessed by Asia’s upcoming designers. This year’s theme is The Asian Perspective and take a look at our favorite looks below:

How striking is this dress below by Vietnamese designer Tu Nguyen Hoang. The flower is actually part of the fabric that makes up the whole dress, it was not sewn on it. Amazing!! It also has a very sexy low backless cut, which is simply breathtaking.

We love Singapore’s Leong Yawen’s orchid inspired dress below. The silhouette and detail is just amazing, ASC2014Runway-465-Mid  Another one of our favorite designers is Hong Kong’s Rebecca Corinne Lam, whose designs were inspired by paper, which has a lot of usage in the Asian culture (think paper cutting, origami, ink blotting).ASC2014Runway-326-MidASC2014Runway-310-Mid

There were three South Korean designers this year and our favorite is Hye Jin Kim, whose portfolio is called “Blooming Your Truth”. We love the softness and femininity look and feel that her collection exudes.ASC2014Runway-254-MidWe are liking Singapore’s Keh Min Chloe’s design below. The layers and juxtaposition of the fabric reminds us of Issey Miyake.ASC2014Runway-074-MidSo after an intensive day of judging and an exciting runway showdown, this year’s three winners are Rebecca Corrine Lam (25, Hong Kong); Zhou Jun (24, China); and Newman Han (29, South Korea).
