Held in conjunction with SHINE Youth festival, Marcellie Runway 2012-Emerge! provides a platform for aspiring youth fashion designers to showcase their work.Local fashion labels such as Mashup and Quainthood have the opportunity to get models to strut on the runway with their own-labelled fashionable clothes.
On that night itself, there are several fashionistas support this meaningful charity cause initiated by aspiring youths. About $7000 of funds was raised for Pathlight school, Singapore’s first autism-focused school. In addition, almost 300kg of unwanted clothings were collected for a student-run charity initiative called Blessings in a Bag.
Here’s some of the runway shots! The models also volunteered their time to be part of this charity project. It’s heartening to know that our youths are coming together to do something meaningful for our society!
