Singapore Fashion Week (FSW) & MAC AIDS FUND
First Published: 10 Sep 2007
Singapore Fashion Week 2007 (SFW07) is slated for 12 – 21 October 2007. This will be the 20th annual instalment, held this year to coincide with the 30th anniversary AFTEX (ASEAN Federation of Textile Industries). This year SFW is championing the awareness and the prevention of HIV/AIDS through Fashion Shares. The event is a tee-shirt exhibition displaying the unique and one-of-a-kind designs culled from a host of designers, personalities and celebrities including Singapore-born, now Paris-based international fashion designer Andrew Gn. He lent his hand in this project by designing a tee-shirt illustrating the importance of hope in fighting against HIV/AIDS. His tee-shirts will retail at $39 exclusively at TANGS Orchard, TANGS VivoCity and the Fashion Shares exhibition at VivoCity Atrium from 12 October 2007 to 21 October 2007.
A prime feature of the collection is Andrew Gn’s five limited edition pieces which are accompanied by a personalised card bearing his signature. These pieces will be auctioned off to raise funds for the cause. All proceeds from the auction and $10 from the sale of each tee-shirt will go towards the AFA HIV+ Pregnant Mothers’ Fund.
As a keen global supporter of HIV/AIDS funding, foremost cosmetic label M-A-C will also be selling their VIVA GLAM lipsticks and Kids Helping Kids Cards at Fashion Shares throughout the exhibition period. Full proceeds from the lipstick sales will go towards the M-A-C AIDS Fund which will in turn be contributed to the AFA HIV+ Pregnant Mothers’ Fund. On top of this, M-A-C will also match dollar for dollar all proceeds derived from the sale of Andrew Gn’s tee-shirts at TANGS for the same duration.
