Female and Nuyou Catwalk presents French label Carven's first runway show in Singapore

Singapore, 16 April 2013 – SPH Magazines Pte Ltd’s (SPH Magazines) two leading women’s fashion magazines Female and Nuyou once again present their signature event - Female and Nuyou Catwalk - on Thursday, 18 April 2013.

The annual runway show has always been a highlight of the local fashion scene, pushing creative boundaries for the venues in which the fashion shows are held. These unique venues include a 163m catwalk in Orchard Road (the longest ever in Singapore), the Formula One Pit Building, Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 when it was newly opened, as well as the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.

This year, the much anticipated event will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Showroom, where it will showcase Carven’s first fashion show in Singapore. The showroom will be transformed into a little arrondissement for this occasion.

Introduced in 1945 as a couture house for petite women, Carven is known for its girlie and feminine sensibilities. The event will showcase 40 looks from its Spring/Summer 2013 collection, from tailored fit-and-flare frocks to suits worn with shorts.

Jeanette Ejlersen, Female’s Creative Editor, said: “Female and Nuyou Catwalk is proud to work with Carven on its first fashion show in Singapore. The Parisian label has a unique heritage and is forward-looking. It’s a French designer brand but it’s very accessible. It was also one of the first to design sportswear when others were still creating couture. We’re excited about the presentation.”

Nuyou’s Editor, Terence Lee, said: “We all love a successful revival story, more so when the creative force (Frenchman Guillaume Henry) behind it is young and talented. The couture house turned ready-to-wear label Carven represents a new wave of French fashion that is a hot ticket - feminine, elegant, forward, and with accessible price points that appeal to the chic and young.”

Diana Lee, General Manager, Fashion & Beauty, SPH Magazines, said: “Our annual catwalk show is a signature fashion event that reinforces Female and Nuyou’s positions as the leading, fashion-forward magazines in Singapore. The partnership with leading brands provides advertisers with an effective and exclusive showcase for their products and services.”

More than 350 invited VIP guests, celebrities, fashion insiders and style mavens are expected at the fashion party of the season.

The event is sponsored by Carven Parfums, Culina, L’Oreal Professional, MAC, Mercedes Benz, Salon Vim and Tattinger.
