Since its inception in 2020, Vogue Singapore has constantly been at the forefront of innovation, pushing the boundaries of fashion and technology. Call to mind the AI-generated cover stars in March’s ‘Roots’ issue, the heat-reactive September cover and most recently, our October ‘Voices’ cover embedded with a NFC-enabled Continuity™ Chip that unlocks an immersive soundscape experience. In the same ethos, we present a landmark event: ‘Next in Vogue’—set to span 17-19 November—that will explore the impact of technology, innovation and culture on the fashion industry. Proudly supported by Singapore Tourism Board and presented in collaboration with The Singapore EDITION, this three-day fanfare will encompass inspiring panel discussions, exciting brand activations and an exclusive gala to celebrate Vogue Singapore’s third anniversary.
The first two days on the 17 and 18 November will unfold in collaboration with the widely anticipated lifestyle hotel launch, The Singapore EDITION, as we aim to drive conversations about the future of fashion, impact of innovation and influence of culture. Here is where Vogue Singapore’s community of readers will get to witness thought leaders, brands, retailers and creatives convening for a series of panel discussions along with designer showcases, fringe events and masterclasses. The luxury lifestyle microcosm will also set the scene for Vogue Singapore’s exclusive third anniversary gala on the concluding evening. Abiding by the theme of ‘Power Play’, the gala will be by invite only.
Below, a closer look at what to expect at ‘Next in Vogue’ and how you can buy tickets.
‘Next in Vogue’ conversations
Delve into the intersections of fashion, innovation and culture in conversations with fashion’s key players. On day one, ruminate on how technology will drive fashion with topics such as ‘New Ways Forward: How Emerging Technologies Influence the Fashion Landscape’ and on day two, gain insight to the generational shift in the industry with ‘The Next Fashion Revolution–Creative Jobs for Fashion’s New World’. Expect to see illustrious names on the panels in both the corporate and creative realm, from Leanne Elliot-Young, co-founder of the Institute of Digital Fashion and Farfetch’s commercial vice-president Alexis Bonhomme, to Terrence Zhou, creative director of Bad Binch Tong Tong and Singaporean fashion director Daniel Boey.
The ‘Next in Vogue’ experience continues with Vogue Closet, an immersive playground of fashion, beauty and technology, featuring a curation of digital and physical fashion selected by the editors of Vogue Singapore. Look forward to the debut showcases of Asian designers Bad Binch Tong Tong and Miss Sohee, who are both known for their bold and imaginative designs, which will be made available in Singapore for the first time.
