Frederick Lee Takes On Russia

Published on 11 June 2014

Singapore couturier makes his debut at Russia’s Pacific Style Week 2014

On May 28, couturier Frederick Lee fulfilled another first in his career: partaking in a high-profile fashion event in Vladivostok, Russia. The affair, known as Pacific Style Week 2014, saw the Singapore native reveal through a runway show his mythical collection, “Inspiration”. Models, clad in floor-sweeping gowns sewn with exotic feathers and dark embellishments, appeared to be majestic gothic queens of the birds. Lee’s use of strong architectural shoulders, aviator caps, and dark-hued makeup further accentuated the extraordinary theme of the show. In a bid to draw audience even further to the edges of their seat, Lee unleashed a creature – one that proudly flaunted (with hands on her hips) her regal gold curved antlers, her glistening black-and-gold eagle wing cape, and her extravagant mermaid gown, complete with black sequins and a feathered skirt.
