There was so much enthusiasm, excitement, and of course heat in the Tent@Orchard on the last day of Singapore Fashion Week. The big venue became so small for hundreds of people, decked in their best outfit, trying to catch a glimpse of Victoria Beckham and to watch her first fashion show in Singapore.
Shortly after guests were seated, the room went dark and the light shined on the main stage, everyone became so quiet and paid full attention to the runway. As expected, Victoria Beckham never fails to amaze the audience with her gifted talent through every design. It all started with a dress. But Victoria Beckham's designs are not typical dress silhouettes that we've seen. She wanted a new translation of the dress, "something fresher and sexier", and she got it. Lean lines, rich textures, large buttons and playful drapes are what were seen in her collection. There were sexy and sophisticated elements on every piece: from those turtle neck knits paired with an asymmetrical black-white stripes maxi skirt to the chunky corduroy and the oversized coats. It's the type of clothes that well-dressed women would love to wear.
Victoria Beckham is a true believer of a "Less is more" approach and that's exactly what her collection is all about. If her goal is to focus on "what women really want to wear and how they want their clothes to make them feel", I think she has achieved it successfully.
Thank you so much for showing Singapore what you do best, Victoria Beckham!
