Since winning the 2011 LMFF Designer Award, Song for the Mute designers Lyna Ty and Melvin Tanaya have been going from strength to strength. They have recently returned from Singapore Men’s Fashion Week and are busy working on many new projects. Here is their update from the road…
Dear LMFF team,
Hope you’re having a great week. Just wanted to shoot you a quick email to give you some updates as I promised!
We just returned from our Singapore trip and I’m happy to say that the show was a huge success! We were given the honour to close the five-day event where more than 1500 people came to attend our show and we were awarded with the Men’s Fashion Week ‘Young Designer of the Year’ award.
The surprise came at the end of the show when the chairman of the event, Frank Cintamani appeared on stage with famous aesthetician Dr Georgia Lee to announce that the doctor will be covering the cost of all the garments we made for the Singapore show including all airfares and accommodation related to trip as well as sponsoring our entire next collection for Spring/Summer 2012 which we are taking to Paris in June.
Thank you again for your never-ending support. We appreciate everything that you have done for us and I look forward to catching up with you back in Australia.
We are so proud of their achievements since LMFF and can’t wait to see what their next collection brings. Song for the Mute will also be doing something exciting during RAFW in May so keep your eyes peeled to the LMFF blog for the latest news on that!
