The Marble Collection – fashion story to unfold in Singapore for the first time
Marble Collection, an extravaganza that integrates fashion, theatrical performance, dance and more into one production, will showcase distinctive styles from the shopping meccas of Harajuku, Shibuya and Akihabara. Brought direct from Japan and produced by the team that put together the famous Tokyo Girls Collection, The Marble Collection is set to dazzle and entertain audiences in Singapore and the region. The unique fashion culture show production is known to be genre-less, and is directed by Junya Yamada, the No.1 director in Asia from DRUMCAN Inc. (http://www.drumcan.com/). He is behind numerous shows for popular Japanese street fashion brands, including the TOKYO GIRLS COLLECTION, and the Uniqlo fashion show launch in Singapore in 2009.
Held in Singapore for the first time, the show will feature “Akihabara” fashion style for the first time, specially developed for Anime Festival Asia 2012, to match the festival’s anime-related content. Up to 9 influential fashion models, including Tenchimu and Shiina Hikari, will be flown from Japan to perform and showcase the styles here. The performance in Singapore will include local fashion bloggers as well. Details on the show are available in the Annex.
