Sands Resorts Macao will host the third annual Sands Macao Fashion Week (SMFW19) from Oct. 17 to 23, 2019, with a week of innovative fashion shows, exhibitions and promotions. The event is designed to showcase the many retail outlets at Sands Shoppes Macao and the upcoming autumn/winter collections. Apart from the opening night invitation only event, all other events are free and open to the general public.
Established as an essential event on the international fashion calendar, SMFW19 will again feature a packed programme, showcasing leading luxury and lifestyle brands across Shoppes at Venetian, Shoppes at Four Seasons, Shoppes at Cotai Central and Shoppes at Parisian. The week will be launched with a glamorous event for VIP guests, media and key industry influencers.
Aimed at both the fashion industry and the general public, SMFW19 will present a series of ready-to-wear group runway shows spotlighting current collections together with various retail workshops and initiatives across the integrated resort.
As with the two previous events, outstanding local designers hosted by the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center (CPTTM) will again be invited to participate in SMFW19 as part of Sands China Ltd.’s ongoing campaign to support Macao’s cultural and creative industries.
SMFW has firmly established itself as a major event on the industry’s global calendar, emphasising the quality and variety of designs available both in Macao’s growing fashion industry and at Sands Shoppes Macao, which with approximately 850 stores, is Macao’s largest duty free luxury shopping experience.
David Sylvester, Executive Vice President of Global Retail, Las Vegas Sands Corp., said: “Following its launch two years ago Sands Macao Fashion Week continues to go from strength to strength. As with the previous editions this year’s SMFW will represent a celebration of all things fashion, taking in some of the biggest brands alongside boutiques labels, with a spotlight on Macao’s homegrown fashion industry. We’re very excited about what we’re anticipating will again be a thrilling week.”
Sands Macao Fashion Week will also feature offers, exclusive promotions on a wide range of products including cosmetics and skincare, fashion, jewellery and watches, lifestyle and more.
