A Cross-Pollination of Creative Ideas at Blueprint 2008
Yesterday, at the height of the Singapore Fashion Festival, I was invited to view a wonderful fashion show that was unlike any other. Called Blueprint 2008, the conceptual show was a result of a cross-pollination of ideas between fashion and industrial designers. What I liked about it was that the work was part sharing and part collaboration of ideas between fashion and product designers, with both inspiring each other to greater heights.
Organized by the Design Singapore Council the objective was as Director Dr Milton Tan said:
“We believe designs are appreciated by their experience in totality. If we can get designers to work more closely together, the experience from the users point of view will be more holistic.”
The exhibition is currently on display at the fashion festival’s Tent@Orchard outside Ngee Ann City until April 6. From April 10 to 28 it will move to the Samsung Flagship store at VivoCity from. For our friends from the rest of the world, the work will be presented at the Milan International Furniture Fair from April 16 to 21, so check it out there!
Meanwhile here were some of the more interesting products on show. Enjoy!
You can find the rest of the fashion outfits and products at my flickr set. However I have to apologize as the images are not the best! I’ve also taken some videos as well to give you an idea of the atmosphere during the show and will get them up here when YouTube fixes its uploading problems.
