Sopheak Seng puts Wellington fashion in focus

Sopheak Seng puts Wellington fashion in focus with Cup Day Carnival events

Wellington, January 20 (JY&A Media) Sopheak Seng, stylist and fashion editor of Lucire, is one of the judges for Wellington Cup Day’s Fashion in the Field. As a preview, he will helm a mini-fashion show for the event’s barrier launch this Wednesday, January 22, at Midland Park.

The barrier announcement will commence at 10 a.m., and Mr Seng will show labels including Rembrandt Suits, Cutler & Co., Miss Selfridge, Carlson, Crochetta, and Deryn Schmidt. All fashion has come from Kirkcaldie & Stains, with whom Mr Seng has worked closely.

Mr Seng follows this up with the Gazley Fashion in the Field event for the Trentham Racing Club’s Wellington Cup Carnival on Saturday, January 25, with the first race scheduled for 12.30 p.m.

Known for his styling ability and pushing the envelope to international standards, Mr Seng says he is looking forward to judging. ‘Wellington is known for being very creative, and Gazley Fashion in the Field is the perfect opportunity for us to let those energies flow. I’m truly expecting to be surprised.’

The show is the first 2014 public event put on by Mr Seng, after a hectic 2013 that saw him continue his work with actress Evangeline Lilly and helm the fashion section for both print and online editions of Lucire.

His 2014 calendar is looking more hectic, with projects already planned for more fashion magazines and international media publishing his work.
