S$12,500 raised for BT Budding Artists' Fund from Fashion Cows
AS part of celebrations to mark 50 years of diplomatic relations between Singapore and Switzerland, five Fashion Cows were adopted on Monday by Cortina Watch, Huber's Butchery, modernAge, Rich-Art Enterprises and Paragon.
The Fashion Cows, whose designs were curated by students from Raffles Design Institute, were presented to the adopting organisations by Thomas Kupfer, Switzerland's Ambassador to Singapore.
The proceeds of S$12,500 will be donated to The Business Times Budding Artists' Fund (BT BAF).
BT BAF provides opportunities for young people aged six to nine years from financially disadvantaged families to pursue arts training and nurture their artistic talents.
Liang Eng Hwa, MP for Holland-Bukit Timah GRC and Chairman of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Finance, Trade and Industry, also graced the event, officiating the opening alongside Mr Kupfer.
Continuing the celebrations, there will be a wide array of Singapore-Switzerland-themed activities at the Paragon shopping mall until Aug 13.
The activities will include a curated marketplace, a luxury Swiss timepiece exhibition, a fashion showcase by Raffles Design Institute's fashion students as well as performances by BT BAF's beneficiaries.
