Audi Fashion Festival is always the talk of the town. I simply love going to the Audi Fashion Festival. It boasts of glamour and I love fashion shows as you all know by now. I have been going to at least one of the shows in previous years.
This year I attended 2 shows. One of which is Zardozë. Invites were from Silver Ang and sent by Estelle. So thank you both and Zardozë of course for having me!!
Audi Fashion Festival 2013 was held at the Tent at Promenade, away from the past years venue which was at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. We had the joy of looking at really pretty scenic views before and after the show!
Check out the Singapore flyer and the beautiful sky! Captured this before we go into the Tent.
Zardozë’s show was a night of glitzy glamour. A-list local celebrities were spotted, with some of Singapore’s top bloggers as well. Zardozë is a home grown fashion label and they were unveiling their Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection. It was their very first time to participate in the region’s premier fashion event and I was really looking forward to see their showcase.
Most photos are from Zardozë’s Facebook page and Plushasia.com.
Let’s check out some back stage photos first as we slowly unveil the night.

While at the waiting area before the show began, Rui En was just standing in front of me for the longest time. I had eye feasting! She looks really gorgeous in the bespoke Zardozë Panthea gown.

Linda Black and Oli! They make a gorgeous pair!
The show finally started with an upbeat tune of Macklemore’s Can’t Hold us. As models strut in Zardozë’s Autumn/Winter 2013 ready-to-wear line, with lots of snakeskin and leather, I can;t help but fall in love with some of the designs.
Next was the highlight of the night. We have one of Singapore’s top model, Charmaine Harn to open the couture Panthea Collection.
Zardozë has a flair for making the show so dramatic, enchanting and hauntingly beautiful. They chose the best song ever. Ok, because it’s my favorite tune for now. Lana Del Rey’s Young and Beautiful.
You can watch the 2nd part which RazorTV has here. Sorry I had some issues with the embedding so I’m linking it instead. Otherwise, you can watch the youtube version here from glitzchannel.
As if their ready-to-wear isn’t mouth-watering enough, their Panthea Collection is to die for! From the intricate embelishments to the flowy chiffon-like dresses, with the glamourous shades of red, black and gold, all the pieces are really beyond beautiful! Some can even be worn as a bride’s evening dress!
Last but not least, the dress which is the price of a HDB in Singapore which costs $500,000, on Indian Celebrity Nethra Guha née Raghuraman. The dress was handmade in an atelier in Paris. The finest lace fabric is from a haute couture fabric shop Janssens & Janssens. Not just the fine fabric used, the dress is also adorned with 130 carats worth of diamonds. Of course, therefore the price tag!
You can have a look at how the dress was made. Lots of details, time and patience was put into the making of this dress.
