Fashion line-up revealed

High-end global fashion brands will join fledgling Cambodian designers on the runway at the second Cambodia Fashion Illumination Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

Organised by luxury clothing importer Sovereign Retail Group, the event will take place on February 21 and 22 at Diamond Island’s City Hall.

The Kingdom will be represented by six brands, including Soknan, Rong, Seam Fashion, Chin FDesign, CGBCN and Natacha Van.

The work of local designers range from the casual urban wear T-shirts of CGBCN to the intricate gowns made by Soknan.

The eight international companies will include denim giant Levi’s from the United States, Axara from France and Mango from Spain.

Unlike the last Fashion Illumination show, a private event held in 2012 that only featured foreign brands, event organiser Ly Souden said that the new show will be bigger and emphasise local creativity.

“We skipped 2013 because we want to transform the previous event to a big one,” said Souden, who is also the marketing manager for Sovereign.

Souden said that while the event’s 800 tickets will mostly be sold to industry insiders, around 240 tickets will be reserved for nonprofessionals.

Tickets will be on sale for $20 from the beginning of the new year until the date of the event in February.
