As part of my work as a Visual Merchandiser, I also do events and presentation. Last night was the World of Calvin private event held at the old Kallang Airport here in Singapore. It showcased the collection of the full Calvin Klein Fall 2014 range: from Calvin Klein Collection; the first line to which we just opened last Tuesday in Marina Bay Sands, Calvin Klein Platinum Label; the relabeling of CK Calvin Klein, Calvin Klein Underwear, Calvin Klein Home and newly relaunched Calvin Klein Jeans.
The concept house built by renowned architect Josh Prince-Ramus is in the center of the rundown airport featuring the Calvin Klein range. Each room presents the corresponding brand; the bedroom, bathroom and pool for Underwear, the living and dining for the Calvin Klein Collection, and the entertainment room for the casual Calvin Klein Jeans. As usual Calvin Klein style, model installations were done and decided to hop in to the pool at the end. After all, they are all wearing Calvin Klein Underwear! Then they were joined by Kevin Carrigan in the pool (still in his suit!) for a photo. Designers of the brand Italo Zuchelli (Men’s Creative Director for Calvin Klein Collection), Francisco Costa (Women’s Creative Director for Calvin Klein Collection), and Kevin Carrigan (Creative Director for Calvin Klein Platinum Label, Jeans and Underwear) presented and mingled with all the guests. It was such an honor to work with Tal Plaisance (Vice President VM for Calvin Klein), Michael Tomei (Creative Services VM Manager for Calvin Klein) and of course, Dale Rozmiarek (Senior Vice President VM for Calvin Klein) for the whole store launching and setup of the event. Such a great feeling to see everything after all the busy week.
Honestly, after working hard so much, i do forget that i work in fashion but then during the event and seeing all the fabulous looking people clad mostly in Calvin Klein, i just realize, “well yes, i do work in fashion”.
On the other note, I decided to wear my Rua Du Mail chiffon top that im so in love with. I paired it with my black Alexander Wang linen pants and white and clear Calvin Klein sandals pumps, lastly added a touch of COS earrings. I did go for a smokey eyes look and nude lip to finish it.
It was such a fun night with champagne and chocolate mousse served throughout the event. It ended with loads of photos and guests hashtagging #calvinkleinlive.
