Designer Sabrina Goh presented one of her strongest collections to date, playing on asymmetry and variances in textures

You always know it's a good sign when you can make Steven Kolb sit up, whip out his iPhone and start snapping. That's exactly what went down when Sabrina Goh presented her fall/winter 2015 collection on the runway. The look in question was a two-piece outfit that featured Goh's brilliant vermillion colour and print inspired by China's danxia landforms — definitely the showstopper of the evening. Progressively, shape and texture were the two dominant themes that emerged. Think structured shifts in neoprene, slip dresses cut from wool crepe, and boxy cowl-necked jackets that were as refreshingly modern as they were easily wearable. Keeping in mind that this will be the collection that Goh will be bringing with her to New York for the Fashion Futures program, we can rest assured that Singapore will be well represented on the international stage.
