Popspoken brings you daily dispatches from the 2014 Asia Fashion Exchange. Follow our daily blogs for off-the-wall (and maybe off-the-record) updates on the ins and outs of the fashion week, plus bits that most people will probably not get to see it. Because here, we bring you right to the meat of fashion. Provided fashion people actually do eat, in the first place.
On Day 3, Audi Fashion Festival officially opens with the Prabal Gurung show, followed with the afterparty at the Gallery Hotel at Nanson Road, with DJ Chelsea Leyland spinning the night away.
Nail polish brand Sally Hansen host select media backstage for exclusive snaps from the hair, makeup and nail art sections. Here are some snaps backstage:
Prabal Gurung presented a Fall/Winter 2014 collection highly reminiscent of his roots in Nepal. Ankle straps with bells paired with tapestry-print skirts and cable sweaters made the look oriental yet sporty-chic.
There was a bit of a nod to a more commercial, modern look which sadly meant that the more traditional Prabal look was eschewed by leather and turtlenecks.
The last look, a billowy red chiffon turtleneck dress with a thigh-high split, brilliantly sums up Prabal’s glamorous take on the evening down embedded with a touch of conservativeness.
In attendance were A-listers such as Sabrina Van Cleef Ault, Anita Kapoor, Georgina Chang, Suzanna Kang plus style stars Sheila Sim, Linda Hao, Yoyo Cao and Sonia Chew.
Check back for more dispatches tomorrow.
