Korean designers to be showcased in Singapore

A group of Korean designers will present their collections at one of Asia’s biggest fashion showcases in Singapore this month.

Twelve young designers and Lee Suktae will attend the Asia Fashion Exchange from May 13-19 in Singapore that will gather international and Asian designer brands from all over the world.

Young designers’ brands such as J Apostrophe, J KOO, KYE, Leyii, Navy Scandal and One Choi will present their pre-spring collection for 2014 to international buyers and press at the Blue Print Show, which serves as a gateway for Asian designers to the global market.

“For the last three years, the Blue Print has been a venue that creates business opportunities between buyers and promising designers and has contributed to the sales of their brands. This year, I’m anticipating the fresh wave the Korean designers will bring to the event,” said Mark Lee, vice president of the Textile and Fashion Federation of Singapore, which is co-organizing the Asia Fashion Exchange with the Blueprint Group.

“More people are paying attention to fashion in Seoul as women there are known to be trend-savvy. For this reason, Korean fashion designers are receiving great attention from international buyers,” said Lee.

Lee Suktae’s Kaal E. Suktae will present the line’s spring-summer cruise collection at the Asia Fashion Federation Conference held alongside the AFE on May 17 with five other Asian designers each representing their countries at the Asia Fashion Federation.
