Fashion Week returns to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands from 9 to 19 October, with appearances by K-pop superstar G-Dragon from the group Big Bang, alongside a host of models, celebrities and TV personalities over the 11-day event.

A fashion icon himself, known for his androgynous style and edgy outfit choices, G-Dragon will also be performing in a private showcase on 12 October, at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre Hall F, at 4.30pm.

Tickets to the showcase are priced at $120 for standard tickets and $1,000 for VIP tickets which are limited to only 20 tickets and include a meet-and-greet with G-Dragon. Tickets went on sale on 9 October.

24-year-old US marine-turned underwear model, Alex Minsky, will also be walking at some of the men’s shows. The amputee, who lost his right leg in Afghanistan after his truck ran over an explosive, has since become a successful underwear model.
