Stylo International, the organiser of the Stylo KL Fashion Festival
is to host a Fashion Grand Prix coinciding with the world’s first-ever F1 night race in Singapore.
Supported by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and presented by Mercedes-Benz, Stylo will stage a one-night only fashion gala on the 26th of
September at the Mercedes-Benz Center on Alexandra Road entitled ‘Stylo Fashion Grand Prix, Singapore’.
Stylo was conceived as a lifestyle fringe activity to support F1 races in the region by Malaysian PR practitioner Dato’ Nancy Yeoh with legendary
shoe designer Dato’ Jimmy Choo, OBE as Advisor and leading Asian impresario Dick Lee as Creative Director. Stylo held its inaugural Stylo KL
Fashion Festival early this year as one of the main events to celebrate the 10th anniversary of F1 in Sepang, Kuala Lumpur.
Highlighting fashion talents with strong event themes as ‘fashion entertainment’ under the tagline ‘fashion’s merely the excuse’, it was a runaway
success bringing thousands of F1 enthusiasts, corporate who’s who, celebrities, fashionistas and members of the local and international media
to its iconic ‘Fashion Cube’ and distinctive ‘Red Room’ throughout its 9 day festival. It was presented by Mercedes-Benz.
Mr Chang Chee Pey, Regional Director ASEAN (Mainland) of the Singapore Tourism Board said, “We are very happy to welcome Stylo to
Uniquely Singapore together with more than 10 lifestyle events and premium experiences under the Singapore GP season. This will help
entrench Singapore’s standing as a world-class events and entertainment capital and positioning Singapore as a top-notch lifestyle destination
with providing unique experiences to complement the first-ever night race in history.
“Throughout the GP season, we expect visitors from the United Kingdom, Austria, Australia, China, Hong
Kong, Japan amongst others. We are very happy to showcase Stylo during this very important season in Singapore’s tourism calendar.”
