The third annual Myanmar International Fashion Week is to be launched on February 6 at Dagon City 1 in Yangon.
Organised by John Lwin (Star Event Production), the three-day event is being held to develop the talent of local designers and boost Myanmar’s modelling industry.
Fashion lovers will view creations by well-known local designers including Mogok Pauk Pauk, May Myat Waso, Min Khant and Phyo Pyae, who will be collaborating with international designers to showcase their designs – worn by over 100 models from Yangon agency Stars & Models International along who will be joined by seven European models.
“I want to show that the local fashion and modelling industry has improved in recent years. Fashion is changing every year,” said John Lwin. “The fashions will be modelled by local models as well as international models, so our local models will be able to learn from them,” he added.
Both international and local fashion brands will feature at the event, which will include performances by DJ Thaw Thaw and dancers from the Star Int’l Dance Studio.
Myanmar International Fashion Week runs February 6 to 8 at the Dagon City 1 Gallery Show Room in Yangon. Free tickets are available at www.myanmarinternationalfashionweek.com
