The members of the Asian Couture Federation (ACF) represent the best of Asia’s as well as international fashion talent. Designer Members are admitted after a nomination by a membership subcommittee and are subject to criteria established by the Governors Committee. There are two tiers of membership; one for Senior Members who are given the title of “Asian Couturier Extraordinaire,” and one for “Invited Members” to acknowledge designers who exhibit exceptional potential.
On a select basis the ACF also recognises international designers who have exhibited a consistent level of artistry and are given the title “International Couturier Extraordinaire”. Furthermore, as part of its mission to recognise a wider level of design creativity the ACF also introduced a new category of “Jewellery and Accessories Designer”.
