Fashionable derring-do

RAFFLES LaSalle Institute recently held a charity design showcase, entitled Reflecxion, in aid of the Spastic Children’s Association of Selangor and Federal Territory. 

The showcase was part of the graduation exercise for students on the Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing.  

Eleven students generated their own designs to reflect distinct themes, ranging from Broadway influences to Egypt, India and China. 

STUNNING:Raffles LaSalle Institute fashion design student Goh Shu Sien named her range Saints & Sinners.

The themes were: Theatrical – The world is but a stage (Marcus Yap), Centrestage (Michelle Foong), Women in Luxury Dream (Lai Sook Ai), Zardosy (Ruth Anandaraj), Ode to Enchantment (Julie Chin), Masquerade (Goh Pei Ying), Utopian Charm (Sharon Tang Hui Ping), Quadrophenia (Norrita Ali), The Lady is a Vamp (Michie Lim Siew Chieng), Revitalisation (Gracelina Choo Swee Mun) and Saints & Sinners (Goh Shu Sien) 

The Fashion Marketing students held a display of their final project, entitled Chambre, featuring a new line of undergarments for youth. 

Raffles LaSalle general manager Mok Kam Wah said the fashion showcase gave design students the opportunity to express their creativity on a grand scale. 

“The designers were involved from the sketchbook stage right to the runway. Students get an immense sense of satisfaction when they see their design come to life,’’ he added. 

Four awards were given out: Best Fashion Design Student, Best Fashion Marketing Student, Best Collection and Best Collection of the Night. Goh Pei Ying won two awards for Best Fashion Design and Best Collection.
