SFF08 Rapunsale @ Loof
Date: April 5th 2008, Saturday, 4pm – 10pm
"Let down your hair
So I may climb
To bring you something to wear”
A rooftop shopping bazaar known as Rapunsale happens twice a year and this year, under the invitation of the Singapore Fashion Festival, Rapunsale will be an official fringe event.
This special SFF08 edition of Rapunsale will keep to the usual off-beat & quirky style of previous Rapunsales but with a touch of high-fashion pizzazz. It will feature a talk-of-the-town fashion showcase cum bazaar with the hottest cult labels this season. Rapunsale herself is making an appearance for the very first time in a fairytale-like fashion showcase. Princes from far & wide will try their best to woo Rapunsale from her ivory tower, offering her an array of stunning apparel to win her heart, mind & soul. Every girl needs to have options and she will not be disappointed what with the diverse range of styles that will definitely melt her heart and sway her will.
Brands that will be walking down the runway are the fiery Brazilian flavour of Beijaflor, edgy and funky togs from Thailand's flourishing label De Veen, Fred Perry's unique street style, the uncluttered clean lines of Style: Nordic and coveted cult jeans from Bread & Butter. The runway will be in the billboard opposite Loof, where the models will be traipsing within to give the audience a truly novel runway experience.
Other labels participating in this exclusive invite-only bazaar are celebrated local labels like Hansel & Nicholas and Australian cult make-up brand ModelCo.
Goodie bags will be handed out to customers who spend $100 or more on purchases charged to their Citibank credit cards, limited to 500 bags.
In addition to the already exciting array of activities, winner of the President Young Talent award & Grand Prix award at the 2000 Nagoya International Design Competition – Jienshu - will feature his dreamy outdoor furniture on Loof's very own ‘patio'. His furniture, practical & enchanting at the same time, lends a mythical air to the event. They will be on display for a month from 5th April 2008.
