FREDERICK LEE

Frederick Lee’s theatrical couture presents fashion as performance art and has made him one of Singapore’s most sought after designers. His avant-garde designs often spoken of as a windows-into-the-future. Frederick pushes fashion boundaries not only through his visionary designs, but also of his innovative use of non-traditional materials. His successful couture boutique, Frederick Bridal, was named “The Best of Singapore” for three consecutive years since 2006 by Singapore Tatler magazine.

 

As Costume Designer for the National Day Parade 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013, Frederick was an integral part of a radical creative team that revitalized and updated this national event, bringing it firmly into the new Asian Century. Frederick was also appointed as the Director of Costumes for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games Singapore in 2011. His outrageous designs, inspired by the ethnic and indigenous tribal traditions of Northern India, Kenya, and Burma, were showcased at the haute couture presentations of Women’s Fashion Week 2012. More recently he showcased in Vladivostok, Russia, Pacific Style Week 2014 runway show. Twenty years in the fashion business has certainly not jaded Frederick’s sense of high drama, flamboyancy and glamorous style. His exuberant couture designs have become synonymous with the relentless pursuit of beauty that still makes him the L’enfant Terrible in the industry.
