Last Saturday, Orchard Road came to life and turned into one-of-a-kind fashion runway for the most anticipated fashion show of the year: Samsung Fashion Steps Out (FSO). 176 models strutted down closed Orchard road, wearing the latest Spring/ Summer outfits of local and international designers including Max Tan, Pauline Ning, Depression, Francis Cheong, Pleatation (Singapore), Mary Katranzou, Ashley Isham (London), Moiselle (HongKong), Germain (France), Aimer (China), Paul Nethapol (Thailand), Sean & Sheila (Indonesia), and Fox (Israel).
It was my third year attending Fashion Steps Out. Each year, the event brought me a brand new experience. This year Fashion Steps Out returns in conjunction with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S6 4G+ and Galaxy S6 edge 4G+. I still remember when I attended Fashion Steps Out 2013, Samsung just launched Samsung Galaxy S4 LTD. That's how much (and fast) the brand has evolved to bring us the latest technology. Besides a few well-known international designers, FSO also welcomes local designers to showcase their collection in a decoration of SG50 (Singapore's 50th Anniversary). It's a double celebration no less.
As expected, FSO was spectacular in many ways: the most famous location (Orchard Road), the longest catwalk (550 meter), the most crowded audience (thousands of tourists and residents), the biggest brand (Samsung), and the most special occasion (SG50). It was meaningful, memorable and very well-organized. Not to mention there was a long list of many talented designers. I almost screamed when I saw Mary Katranzou's collection on the runway. She is one of my most favorite designers whom I'm dying to meet. Besides Mary Katranzou's collection, there were many beautiful designs on the runway that I'm obsessed with.
Below are some photos I took during the fashion show. Have a look!

If you weren't at Orchard Road last weekend to witness this once a year event, you can still catch the 50 special looks created by local designers through the SG Next50: Fashion Futurism exhibition at Paragon Atrium 1 from 17th April to 24th May 2015.
