Digital Fashion Week: Pictures from the press conference

Digital Fashion Week kicked off in earnest yesterday, with the arrival of the celebrity guests and the press conference officially announcing the event.

Yes – I was gathered in the same room as SATC stylist Patricia Field, ANTM winner Sophie Sumner and Andrej Pejic and watched in awe as my beautiful co-host Yvette King introduced DFW to the media and other Singapore bloggers.

I stood toe to toe with the husband of the genius that is Guo Pei(she'll be arriving at a later date) and I was able to give Eugene Lin my gratitude for his heartfelt and passionate views on the Singapore fashion scene.

An incredible talent line-up for Digital Fashion Week - and me in the corner :-)

Back row: JR Chan (J-A-S-O-N), Johanna and Juang (Ownmuse), Tze Goh, Eugene Lin,
Pauline Lim (Paulne.Ning) and me :-)

And most importantly, I was able to get some photos. Having already read my Q&As, I know that’s what you want to see - pictures of beautiful people and me being a star-struck teenager.

As I don’t want to disappoint, I will keep the words to a minimum (other than to say that all of these people are so friendly and down to earth and that Andrej is inhumanly pretty) and post some photos of these fashion A-listers in Singapore.

Digital Fashion Week - the world's first online only fashion week - starts on Saturday, October 20. Visit their website to find out more about the event, the shows and the designers and models taking part. 

I will also be hosting live Google+ hangouts with the designers and star models. You can find out more about that on the official DFW Google+ page.
