Singapore Fashion Runway: Fashion For A Social Cause
SINGAPORE – Raffles Singapore was thrilled to be part of the ‘Singapore Fashion Runway: Fashion For A Social Cause’! Our Fashion Marketing and Management students supported this good cause by volunteering their time in the preparation of this event which was held on 12 August 2017.
Singapore Fashion Runway nurtures beneficiaries who require special attention, who are differently-abled, patients of chronic illnesses or breast cancer, and of course strong-willed survivors in their journey of fashion, enabling them to learn a skill and seek happiness while battling with their own challenges in life. Since setting up the Singapore Fashion Runway in 2015, founder Eileen YAP has had one goal in mind: to get Singaporeans from all walks of life to fulfil their dreams of creating and designing fashion pieces and for members of the public to witness the fashion show on a runway, and follow the stories of how the lives of many can be impacted.
MP Mr BAEY Yam Keng, Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, was the Guest-of-Honour during the event on 12 August 2017. He also graced the catwalk for a cause in the outfit designed by founder Eileen YAP, and sewn by breast cancer survivor and Singapore Fashion Runway Head of Sewing Lily CHAN.
Here are a few snippets from the heartwarming and lovely evening!
