Fashion Season @ Orchard 2010 is presented by the Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) in conjunction with Asia Fashion Exchange (AFX), and co-organised by SPH.
Ms Irene Tan, General Manager of SPH Magazines, says: "Female & Nuyou Catwalk Collection has never failed to push the fashion boundaries, from staging its catwalk in Changi Airport Terminal 3 in 2008, to the longest catwalk in Orchard Road last year, and now with a 125-model-strong show. With the Asian models that both magazines have hand-picked for the Female & Nuyou Catwalk Collection, the event plays a key role in promoting the talents and beauty in Asia. It has been one of the platforms for both magazines to bring fashion in Singapore to a new height, while engaging our readers and advertisers at the same time."
