Finally, the biggest and most awaited fashion event of the year has finally returned. It has been 3rd year since Asia Fashion Exchange was held in Singapore. I was lucky to be invited to one fashion show of Audi Fashion Festival, one of the main four activities during the festival last year. It was superb. 

This year, Audi Fashion Festival comes back bigger and stronger. There will be many fashion shows, collections from many different fashion designers from Australia, France, New York, Berlin and Singapore. There'll also be the return of the big names like Tiffany & Co, my favorite brand Swarovski and international home-grown label RAOUL (I can't express how much love i have for each collection of Raoul). Looking at the event calendar this year, I feel so excited already. 

You can check it out the official event calendar HERE if you want to know more. 

And among all these awesome events, I personally look forward to attend the shows of three top designers at AFF this year. They are: 

1. French designer Thierry Mugler 
2. American designer Zac Posen. 
3. French designer Roland Mouret

The three are the big names in fashion industry and they are my HUGE inspiration and motivation. 
Easily, you can reckon Thierry Mugler from the his popular perfumes and fragrance line but you might not know that Thierry Mugler was actually the first designer to create his virtual fashion show on the computer so that it can be seen online in 1998. He started making the first outfit when he was at the age of 14. That's pretty amazing. 

On Wednesday 16th May, it will be the opening show of Mugler Autumn/ Winter 2012 with his Creative Director, Nicola Formichetti who is well-known for Lady Gaga's wardrobe stylist. Believe it or not, all the super popular music videos of Lady Gaga that you've seen i.e Bad Romance, Telephone, Born This Way, etc...Nicola Formichetti was the one who did styling for all of them. With that said, the coming show of the duo is gonna be explosive. 

Oh, and have you ever seen Mugler's collection yet? I managed to get some photos highlight his A/W 2012 during Paris Fashion Week.

Absolutely love these pieces. They are so strong structure, elegant and mysterious. I can't wait to see more during the Fashion Festival. 

Mugler A/W 2012 with Creative Director, Nicola Formichetti opening show will be on Wednesday 16th May at 7pm at Tent@Orchard. 

Another favorite designer of mine is Zac Posen. I was quite shocked when I first knew that Zac Posen was born in 1980. I was like "OMG! He is so  young and yet so successful already". He was born with fashion talent in his blood and his interest in fashion started since he was a child. That explains why.

When I first saw Posen's collection, I felt in love immediately. I love his ruffled fishtail mermaid gowns, the sweeping strapless dresses, the bias- cut cocktail dress and many more. Those are always my favorite styles. Posen's collection is also received lot of love and attention from many famous celebrities.

Last but not least, Beyonce in deep green Zac Posen resort gown. 

That's good enough to prove Zac Posen's collection in this coming May will be a worth waiting for show in Audi Fashion Festival and this is also his very first show in Asia. I'm sure he is gonna get so much love from Asian fashion addicts. His show - Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2012 & F/W 2012 with Designer, Zac Posen will be on Saturday 19th May at 8pm at Tent@Orchard. 

The third fashion designer whose show I'm very excited about also comes from France: Roland Moret that is. He is best known for his iconic hourglass creation. He also created the legendary Moon dress made famous by Victoria Beckham.

Other celebrities seem to be big fan of Roland Mouret Galaxy Dress too. 

Some of his designs which I'm absolutely in love with

Roland Mouret fold details dress short capped sleeves, pleating at the front and a full length central back zip fastening. Sweet, simple and magical. 

Roland Mouret's structured dress with wide shoulder straps, a v-back and a zip fastening at the back. Super elegant and classy

One of Roland's annabelle ruffle dress. It's such a cute design. It features a structured neckline, fitted waist and very adorable ruffle detail along skirt hem.  

Caught Katy Perry in this dress. Looks like the dress is made just for her. 

Beyonce loves Roland Mouret dress too.
