Shepard Fairey: Evolution – The Future is Unwritten
Raffles x Shepard Fairey x Ion Orchard

‘Evolution’ is a stunning showcase of original creations by our very OWN RAFFLES DESIGNERS, ignited by the brilliance of Shepard Fairey‘s artistry and messages.

Immerse yourself in the boundless imagination of our talented Raffles Designers from the Visual Communication Design programme as they bring art to life in 3D! Our Raffles Designers, through the inspiration of Shepard Fairey’s art, developed multiple design pieces that transcend the paintings, giving a three dimensional interpretation of the pieces, breathing in new life and new meanings to the complex artwork – a feat to admire!

This immersive experience will transport you on a thrilling journey, complete with dazzling graphic and fashion exhibits painstakingly designed by Raffles Graphic, Fashion, and Interior Designers!

With generous support from ION Orchard and design and curation by the talented students of Raffles College of Higher Education, Evolution will use Shepard Fairey’s art as inspiration to explore the connections between street art and the world around us. This immersive, dynamic exhibition will feature exclusive behind-the-scene footages of Fairey, inviting viewers to take a peek into the life and inner workings of this world-renowned artist. Aside from providing insight into the artist’s practices, the showcase will also feature the reinterpretations of his work through installations and a fashion showcase created by the students of Raffles College of Higher Education, using Fairey’s works as inspiration to create a zero-waste fashion collection.” – ION Orchard

Fashion The Change 2023 Exhibition

Fashion The Change 2023 Exhibition by Singapore Fashion Council (SFC)

Fashion The Change 2023 Exhibition was by Singapore Fashion Council (SFC) situated at Design Orchard

This exhibition features 3 Raffles Fashion Designers, Evangelista SANTOSO, Kimberly Eunike GOSAL and Verina LIE.

In her design, Evangelista explores the use of natural indigo dyes with designs that were inspired by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi and the works of famed architect Tado Ando.

Kimberly took inspiration from her favourite characters from My Little Pony and My Melody, and with that, the idea was expressed in her designs with a range of natural dyes developed from food waste.

Verina’s design was created through zero or minimal waste pattern-cutting methods to eliminate any unnecessary wastage of materials.

In conjunction with GoGreen Singapore, Singapore Fashion Council unveiled the imaginative creations of talented young designers at the Fashion the Change 2023 exhibition at Design Orchard.
