Ms. Campbell will be making her very first runway debut in South East Asia and this will be her only stop in Asia for the Spring/Summer 2014 season.
The British fashion icon is set to feature alongside 32 Singapore designers who will participate in the event’s new format THE CATWALK SPACE and THE SHOWROOM SPACE, celebrating the creative and commercial importance of the Singapore fashion industry.
