Everything you need to make the most out of the week-long fashion extravaganza.

With A-list international guests and an exciting local line-up, we can’t be the only ones who can’t wait for the start of Singapore Fashion Week on 13 May. Anticipation aside, fashion week is a serious business, consisting of lots of waiting and icy showcase halls. If this is your very first fashion week, here’s what you need for the best fashion experience of your life.

Hydration

Hunger and thirst can be a real pain when you’re trying to enjoy yourself at fashion week. Fill up and hydrate yourself with Hic juice, which will be available at the SGFW show tent. With new limited edition juices titled Maqui Jacobs, Kaledashians and Stella McCayenne, how can you say no?

Thankfully, Singapore Fashion Week is confined to a single venue at the Tent @ Orchard. However, some walking and standing (argh, the dreaded pre-show wait) is to be expected, so have with you a pair of foldable flats (we love Yosi Samra’s sweet kicks!) to whip out whenever your feet start to hurt.

Freezing-cold show venue + humid weather outside = a million and one conundrums when it comes to dressing for Singapore Fashion Week. Wear something lightweight for the journey to the SGFW tent and bring along a substantial yet lightweight blazer or coat, like this one from River Island.

With so much to carry, ensure you have a bag roomy enough to store everything neatly yet chic enough for street style paparazzi at Singapore Fashion Week. A bucket bag, like this one from Charles & Keith, is perfect.

Whether you’re at SGFW as a designer, journalist or just an purveyor of style, it’s always good to have a notebook along to sketch out  and note down inspiring looks (or just stuff you really want to buy). These limited edition blank-paged notebooks from Kikki. K is the perfect companion for journaling your fashion week experience, besides hazy photos from the catwalk.
