In conjunction with the Malaysian launch of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Steel & Ceramic Chronograph, the brand celebrated the its unique marriage of strength and style with a specially designed art installation at the Gardens highlighting the collection’s form and beauty. Intricately weaving together steel structures with steel rods in a beautiful ‘lattice’ design, the installation represented how each part of a timepiece – from the delicate hands to the precise movement – are intertwined. The exhibit also showcased images from the catwalk of Moscow Fashion Week 2011, featuring designs from Konstantin Gayday.

Donna Ong collaborated with FENDI for the first time ever in a piece called “A landscape of the imagination” for FENDI’s Fatto a Mano for the Future. The designer worked with expert craftsmen in a series of sessions showcasing the process of using the hand-worked leather cutting and sewing techniques at the FENDI boutique at Takashimaya Shopping Centre in Singapore recently. The narrative is that of an imagined landscape, inspired by the early days when important documents and maps were printed on leather, with emphasis on contrasts, texture, depth and emotion.
