The upcycling fashion show titled “Design for Good”, is an idea initiated and developed by The Salvation Army and the SG100 Foundation. The project aims to collaborate with our local art associations and organizations to put together a large scale, locally-branded fashion showcase.
Annually, the Salvation Army receives a generous amount of pre-loved clothing from the public. The clothing are subsequently donated to the less fortunate or resold at the various Salvation Army thrift stores to raise bunds for their beneficiaries.
The upcycling fashion involves the redesign of preloved clothing in good condition and material, to beautifully crafted pieces for an auction facilitated through a fashion show. The proceeds raised from the auction will aid the Salvation Army in raising funds, contributing to a good cause.
Since the fashion show is an opportunity to showcase and promote the local arts, the works of budding and established Singaporean designers will be featured.
This initiative was a success in Australia, and the SG100 Foundation hopes to replicate the initiative in Singapore.
The project will provide exposure to our youth in areas such as fashion design, event management, and modelling.
Hence, the initiative will act as a platform for budding fashion designers to learn and showcase their work to international audiences. Furthermore, the fashion show will develop the arts scene in Singapore.
