an evening in jail with ck calvin klein

“With an area size of merely 699 square kilometres nationwide, event venues can only get this exciting in Singapore. The National Museum of Singapore? Check. The Old Parliament House? Check. The top level of a multi-storey carpark? Check. A dilapidated jailhouse once home to convicts? Now that has got to be a first. I was pleasantly surprised when I first received the invite.

and the brands’ Global Creative Director, Kevin Carrigan, were to present a fashion experience in Singapore on the grounds of the Queenstown Remand Prison for its Spring 2010 collection. Seriously? Quite evidently, it was not an event I could bear to miss.

For the evening, the historic former prison was transformed into a sleek event space to preview Carrigan’s Spring 2010 ck Calvin Klein apparel and accessory offerings, which were featured on more than twenty models who were dramatically positioned on linear platforms within the cell block of the former prison. Featured on the interior and exterior walls and in the cells of the venue, were a new series of visually stunning, large-scale video installations featuring the Spring 2010 line, which were created by acclaimed Singaporean photographer and director Geoff Ang, who was also in attendance.

Attended by the discerning guests spanning the worlds of fashion, art architecture and entertainment, the event was also graced by ck Calvin Klein models, Liu Wen and Mark Cox, President & CEO, Calvin Klein, Inc., Tom Murray. Others spotted included actors Ethan Ruan (dressed in ck Calvin Klein) and Allan Wu; actress Cynthia Koh; as well as Ong Beng Seng & Christina Ong, Sharon Tan, Alicia Scanlon, Francesca Scarpa, Christine Pillsbury, Celina Lin (dressed in ck Calvin Klein), Alwyn Chong, Chan Soo Khian, Ling Foo, Michael & Chiwen Koh, Lai Yong Lawrence, Resham Melwani, Claudia Huegel, Devesh & Asha Chetty, Lelya Eichelberger, Tan Su Shan, George Tanasijevich, Kaori & Ray Zage, Shareen Khattar, Moira Coops, Olga Iserlis, Alice Ooi, Chris Wilson, Gaurav Kripalani, Jo Soh, Wykidd Song, and Ernesto Bedmar.”
