After a four-month search, Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore, in collaboration with Swarovski, unveiled the winners of the Singapore league of the Harper’s BAZAAR Asia NewGen Fashion Award on Sunday (Aug 27).
Winner Phua Chun Huen and runner-up Joanna Lim emerged triumphant, as 150 people viewed their collections and attended the event at Adrift by David Myers at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
They were joined by international social media influencer and model Irene Kim - the cover star of Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore’s Digital issue earlier this year - who was flown into Singapore for the event.
The NewGen Fashion Award was initiated in 2013 as a platform for emerging fashion designers to showcase their talent. The regional competition scouts for new talent and creates the opportunity for continued learning by forging a partnership with the internationally renowned fashion design school, Istituto Marangoni.
