Did you notice a shade of blue missing from the sidewalks of Orchard? Wisma Atria was undergoing a face-lift and it has finally re-launched its facade on 6th and 7th September. What ensued was a 2 day fashion-music extravaganza which saw 300 guests filling the white-marquee that housed the festivities.
The launch was a star studded event, hosted by Stephanie Carrington and George Young, with media personalities such as Rosalyn Lee and Keegan Kang being part of the crowd. Guests were treated to a free flow of canapés and champagne.
After a speech Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh, Executive Chairman of YTL Starhill Global REIT Management Limited, a dazzling light facade was activated to signal the launch of the Wisma Atria facade.
The models then stole the limelight from the distinguished guests. 60 models sizzled the runway on both days. On the 6th of September, the models showcased items from Wisma Atria’s new tenants – Coach, TimeWise by Cortina Watch, Dickson Watch & Jewellery and TAG Heuer. Coach kicked off the night with a 1960’s travelling-fashion look, with outfits complemented with classic cream and paired with oversized glasses. TimeWise by Cortina saw models donning elegant evening wear and Venetian feathered masks.
Dickson Watch & Jewellery’s segment had models being styled with a Hamptons-inspired look. Models wore loosely-tied sweaters over shirts with rolled-up sleeves and chic scarfs were accompanied by summer colours of yellows, blues and whites.
TAG Heuer’s models were all suave and decked out in racing attire, with leather jackets, riding gloves, racing helmets and all which brought out the best of the sleek, elegant timepieces that F1 drivers are known to wear.
The next day, models were clad in Tommy Bahama’s beach and casual wear collection that consisted of sun dresses and exotically-printed shirts which was well-paired with accessories such as sun hats, fedoras, sandals and cloth bags which are perfect for the climate in sunny Singapore.
Following that, it was Isetan’s turn to take the runway by storm with their in-house brands, Collect Point and Mango. Collect Point’s style is simple and chic and is made up of pastels, maroon and patterned shirts and dresses. Mango rounded off the night with a bang with their presentation of fancy party wear.
Both evenings ended with rounded off by the soothing sounds of 53A, a popular local band which is often heard at Timbre. They serenaded the audience with soulful renditions of popular hits .
