(KPL) Lao Fashion Week will take place between Sept 11-15, 2017 in Vientiane Capital as a full week of fashion and cultural festivities.
This year, Fashion Week expects to draw more than 30 leading designers from Laos and the international community.
In addition to the main stage fashion shows, each night will showcase designers’ special collections. There will also be a workshop and a seminar on various subjects related to fashion and design conducted by professional designers from Laos and from the international community as guest speakers. Anyone can enroll to participate and exchange experiences with the designers.
Ms Tot Vilouna, a Lao famous vocal singer, actress, model and celebrity was selected to be the Lao Fashion Week Brand Ambassador of Lao Fashion Week 2017. This event will be supported by the Lao Brewery Group and Banque Franco-Lao.
Last year’s event was held under the theme ‘Fashion for a Good Cause’ whose objective was to promote the growth of the Lao fashion industry, integrate the Lao fashion industry into the international arena, and develop young Lao designers by giving them an opportunity to pursue their dreams of becoming professional designers, said Ms Pany Sayavong, CEO-Founder of Lao Fashion Week and the Lao Young Designers Project.
This year, we will be using the same topic as last year, ‘Fashion for a Good Cause’, Ms Pany said.
