Women’s Fashion Week 2011 Chairman Frank Cintamani
Singapore’s first ever Haute Couture exhibition debuted on 6th October 2011, a range of Haute Couturiers have flown over their esoteric design creations from France for the spectacular exhibition. Prominent names such as Gustavo Lins and Stephane Rolland, Anne Valérie Hash, Christophe Josse, Dominique Sirop, Alexis Mabille, Eymeric François and Maxime Simoens would be presented during the inaugural Haute Couture week in Singapore from 26 to 30 October.
My eyes feasted on the delicate world of Haute Couture with the most intricate designs made and worn by the likes of celebrity and royalty:
Alexis Mabille’s collection awed the media with 6 select haute couture pieces. He had flown in from Paris specially to grace the event. Alexis Mabille’s elegant white evening gowns were made with a marriage of luxurious silks, chiffons, silk crepes and laces.
The impressive intricate designs by Alexis Mabille epitomises dress making in its finest form:

A collaboration with the best-in-class logistics service provider DHL enables Women’s Fashion Week to transform into a world class Haute Couture event with specially selected trees and Haute Couture pieces being flown in for the runway event. Partnerships with Montblanc and Rolls Royce create synergies due to their similar luxury concept of individual craftsmanship.
