Singapore Hosts Chanel Cruise Catwalk Show

By Paul Joseph

Singapore has become the first city outside Europe and America to host a prestigious Chanel Cruise Catwalk Show.

Every year the French fashion house chooses a different venue to stage the catwalk fiesta for the global debut of their latest cruise collection - an inter-season line of ready-to-wear clothing for holidays or travel, and is created in addition to the brand’s recurrent twice-yearly seasonal collections.

A host of renowned names including models Cara Delevingne and Stella Tennant, American actress Dakota Fanning and South Korean singer Choi Si Won gathered at the Loewen Cluster heritage site in Dempsey Hill, Singapore for the high profile launch event on Friday.

As well as Chanel’s 2014 cruise collection, this year’s catwalk shot also featured the world debut of ‘One Upon A Time’ a film by German fashion designer and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, which was screened at Singapore’s Raffles Hotel.

Previous years have seen such iconic cities as New York City, Miami, Venice and Versailles host the Chanel Cruise Catwalk Show.

Chanel recently celebrated its 100th anniversary at the Paris Fashion Week.
