Singapore is really making a lot of fashion news this year, after coming out 8th for the most fashionable city in the world. Just a few weeks ago, we saw the opening of H&M right in the heart of Orchard Road. And now (listen up everybody, get ready to mark your diary) on the 18 September, Louis Vuitton will open it’s long awaited and first ever Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. The Maison will sit on the waterfront of the Marina Bay promenade and will be a distinctive landmark in the celebrated landscape around the bay.

The Louis Vuitton Island Maison is a one of a kind concept for the luxury brand, exclusively designed by internationally acclaimed and award winning architect Peter Marino. Visitors can look forward to a unique and sophisticated retail experience as the first Louis Vuitton Maison in Southeast Asia will incorporate art and cultural elements in its retail space.

As with all good fashion traditions, there will be a grand opening party the night before on the 17th September. Words have it that it will be the biggest ever store opening in Singapore with an endless list of celebrities flying in from all over the world (Yes, we are not just talking about our local Mediacorp artistes whom we could really care less about) to grace this event.

Louis Vuitton will be having a live Facebook broadcast of the red carpet event at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, hosted by Denise Keller on September 17, 2011 at 6.50 PM SGT (GMT +8). Watch the Red Carpet Live at Facebook.
