WHO BETTER TO SHOW OFF – AND HELP RALLY SUPPORT FOR – SINGAPORE’S GROWING CROP OF DIRECTIONAL FASHION DESIGNERS THAN THEIR MOST LOYAL AND EQUALLY FASHION-FORWARD FANS?
CHARINA WIDJAJA FOR MAX TAN Who’s Widjaja: The managing director of Digital Fashion Week Creative, which promotes independent labels through runway shows, presentations and pop-up events throughout the region. (Read: If there’s anyone who knows and can spot Asia’s next fashion stars, it’s her.) What you need to know about Max Tan: Eight years into the game and he remains one of our most well-loved with his experimental take on classic tailoring, contrasted with his unassuming demeanour. His latest collection is inspired by the clothes of ancient Egyptian idols. Widjaja on Tan: “He plays with layers and fabrics in a smart and modern way. The result is never fussy or overwhelming. His silhouettes are edgy and not typically feminine, without looking severe.” Number of Tan’s designs that she owns: “Over 20 – mostly jumpsuits, dresses and coats that I wear a lot to evening events.” You’ll love Tan too... “If you’re looking for something that would make people go ‘Who are you wearing?’.”
