Celebrities flock to major addition to the international fashion calendar Event includes launch of La Perla Spring/Summer 2018 ready-to-wear collection
(Macao, Oct. 24, 2017) – Sands Resorts Macao successfully launched its first Sands Macao Fashion Week, with six days of spectacular fashion programmes and promotions that included runway and boutique shows specially created over the canals of Shoppes at The Venetian, fashion parades at Shoppes at Parisian and other special events open to the public.
Top international label La Perla also used Sands Macao Fashion Week 2017 as the perfect stage to launch its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, which introduced 70 ready-to-wear and haute couture looks. The event also highlighted Macao’s growing fashion industry and shined a spotlight on some outstanding local designers.
Taking place between Oct. 19–24, 2017, Sands Macao Fashion Week has instantly established itself as a major new event on the industry’s global calendar. In addition to the Walk on Water runway shows that took place on The Venetian Macao’s Grand Canal itself, The Parisian Macao’s Avenue des Champs Elysees featured live catwalk shows showcasing the latest looks from a selection of stores for the coming season, set against the backdrop of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
The week’s prestigious programme also saw exhibitions at Shoppes at Four Seasons, revealing the crème de la crème of fashion from the world’s premium fashion houses.
A highlight of the week was an exclusive VIP gala dinner featuring a La Perla fashion show attended by around 200 celebrities and fashion elite from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, USA, France, UK, Italy and Russia, held at The Venetian Macao’s opulent main lobby on Thursday, Oct. 19.
Celebrity models leading the runway were Natasha Poly and Liu Wen, while in the audience guests of La Perla included renowned actress Fan Bing Bing and actor and model Hu Bing. Other celebrities included model You Tian Yi; actress Chen Shu; The Rap of China star BrAnT.B; Hong Kong celebrity couple actor and musician Palmerson Sinn Lap Man and singer and television presenter Paisley Wu Pui Wei; host of television show Asia’s Next Top Model Cindy Bishop; and Hong Kong model and TV presenter Cara G.
As part of Sands China Ltd.’s ongoing campaign to support Macao’s cultural and creative industries, Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center (CPTTM) was invited to participate in two of the events, including presenting the closing runway show at Shoppes at Parisian where eight local Macao designers and brands with over 50 new looks were showcased.
The designers are part of CPTTM’s Fashion Incubation Programme (MaConsef) 2017, which aims to improve the knowledge and technical skills of locals going into the industry.
David Sylvester, Executive Vice President of Global Retail, Las Vegas Sands Corp., said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Sands Macao Fashion Week has got off to such a sensational start. With some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment descending on Macao for a series of cutting-edge events capped by the stunning premiere of La Perla’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection and the involvement of the local fashion industry, we have proudly declared the arrival of Sands Macao Fashion Week on the international fashion scene.”
“We would like to express our gratitude for the support and participation of everyone who attended this wonderful event, along with all our partners and the Macao Government who helped make it such a success.”
