GUESS a well-known name among the fashionista has showcased its latest Spring/Summer Collection and at the same time introduced the finalists of the GUESS Girl Model Search! It was an amazing show and I was glad to be invited to the event. What do we have in store for GUESS Spring-Summer 2016 collection – a touch of reminiscences of the world most beautiful beaches from Brazilian Copacabana to the French Riviera and on to Italy’s spectacular island of Capri. The main collection themes are:
Copacabana – Featuring body shaping and figure-enhancing technical materials. Usage of tropical prints, leopard motifs and botanical as core inspiration. With colours such as green hue and popping pink, this collection certainly caught my attention.
Riviera Lifestyle – In this collection, we have the French Riviera and Capri look. For French Riviera- a collection of pure femininity. It’s seductive with flowing embroidered silk and striped lace dresses. As for Capri, sensual beach look such as silk and cotton, macramé lace and broderie voile.
Denim #Madeforme – One of my all-time favourite, the GUESS denim collection offers 70s‐style hippie flair revives in flared jeans in powerstretch fabrics with trendy details such as mesh inserts and shiny surfaces. Riviera glam is accentuated by enchanting indigo Sangallo dresses and shape‐up and push‐up jeans.
Upon, the end of the fashion show, we were introduced to the finalists of GUESS Model Search 2015! This is the search that launched the careers of many supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova, Anna Nicole Smith, Laetitia Casta and Kate Upton. Not to mentioned, it also launched the career of our very own Malaysian supermodel Amber Chia.

Together with other remaining representatives from Singapore and Indonesia, they will compete in Jakarta, Indonesia to win the title of GUESS Girl South East Asia.
