Go Red for Women 09

In conjunction with the Audi Fashion Festival, Go Red For Women presented by MasterCard, is auctioning 10 little red dresses designed by budding fashion designers from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Singapore Heart Foundation’s Go Red For Women campaign. Symbolised by the little red dress, the campaign aims to empower women in their fight against heart disease and stroke.

Here are some of my favourite picks:

Inspired by parchutes sashaying high in the sky, this design by Nicholas of Nic Wong evokes a sense of bliss and surrealism. The couture-like details such as folds and draping showcases his clean cuts and structural style.

A well known young thai designer, TIMMY is best known for his combination of modern vintage chic with a feminine touch. This semi-formal cocktail dress is based on the popular children novel The Little Red Riding Hood. I love the crisp asymmetrical cape and the corset-like structure of the bodice.

Reckless Erika is a young and quirky local brand,balancing classic tailoring with more avant-garde use of silhouette, and constructing avant-garde silhouette with classic details. This dress is simple, yet adorned with luxurious pleats and gathers, in a deep red colour.

Jakarta-based designer Nikicio designed a flirty openback short dress that reflects a women's power and sexiness.
