Fashion Steps Out back for the 4th year

SINGAPORE - A literally traffic-stopping moment will be held on May 4 at Orchard road.

Samsung Fashion Steps Out (FSO) 2013 will put the spotlight on the chic and en vogue with an exciting line-up of fashion shows, pop-up stores and exclusive MasterCard shopping promotions.

Into its fourth year, the event is presented by the Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA), with the support of the Singapore Tourism Board.

This year, Orchard Road will be clothed in floral finery as it puts on colours from the spring/summer 2013 runway palette.

Selected trees on both sides of the shopping boulevard will be dressed in vivid hues and effervescent prints – all created by budding designers from Raffles Design Institute (RDI).

The six-week fashion event kicked off on Thursday, Mar 28, with a launch party at Paragon.

More than 150 guests partied away to live music from local band, the Goodfellas, and were swept away by the latest spring/summer looks by Etro and Pois' presentation of Mary Katrantzou and Manish Arora.

Come May 4, expect to see close to 150 models strutting their stuff down Orchard road, which will be closed to traffic and converted into a runway for one night.

In conjunction with the fashion season from May 28 to May 12, charge $300 to your MasterCard at any of the participating malls on Orchard Road to redeem a $30 shopping voucher on the same day.

Also, shoppers stand a chance to win a Samsung device or $500 shopping vouchers in the Shop, Dine & Win Draw with every $50 spent at any outlet in the participating malls.
