Get ready for Singapore Night Festival 2018 that promises to blow your mind with outlandish fashion and some kick-ass performances by local artists.

Lady Gaga, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj do not have a lot in common when it comes to their music. But there is one thing they love -- outrageous fashion. From meat dresses to over the top fascinators and colourful wigs, there is not much these singers haven't tried before.

And if you've been a fan of their fashion, you can now get a closer look at their outfits. All thanks to the Singapore Night Festival 2018.  

Yes, you read that right!

Singapore Night Festival 2018 Brings Crazy Fashion Home

Designer duo Maria Tsopanaki and Dimitri Mavinis who run the London-based fashion label Erevos Aether have previously created outlandish outfits for many singers. They have also created several designs for the red carpet, including one for Janelle Monáe.

And now they are reportedly showcasing their work at the Singapore Night Festival 2018. 

Visitors can get a first-hand taste of their futuristic designs through their exhibition, which this time is inspired by the Maori culture.

Among the many designs selected to be showcased at the festival is the duo's most popular creation-- Princess Niwareka, the Maori princess.

Created from vegan leather and mirrors, the design has been exhibited at the World of Wearable Art in New Zealand.

Another work that will be on display at the Singapore Night Festival is by Singapore-based designer and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) professor Galina Mihaleva. You can check out the exhibition at the National Design Centre from Aug 17 to 25, 2018. 

This particular fashion showcase is one of the main highlights of the 11th edition of the Singapore Night Festival 2018. But there is a lot more you can expect to see.

You can also catch a glimpse of 16 light installations lit around the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct. If that's not your jam, you can watch any of the 27 performances that are set to take place around the area, as well as enjoy some F&B and crafts.

If you've been a regular to the festival you know that there are several road closures, especially for Armenian Street. But not this year. The organisers are instead moving all the cation to the alleyway that is located between Peranakan Museum and The Substation.  

A Harajuku Fashion Show 

This year the focus is to let the visitors enjoy a more intimate event. Apart from the fashion and the installation exhibit, you can also expect a Harajuku Fashion show, which will take place on August 25, at 7pm, at SAM at 8Q.

Jazz Robot Dancers 

Singapore's homegrown company Hope Technik will also exhibit their pneumatic-powered exoskeletons named Audra. The suit is specifically designed used to help workers lift heavy loads, and will be worn by the local jazz dance troupe EV Dance.

You can take a look at this unique collaboration from August 23 to 25, between 8.30pm and 10pm, at Queen Street and LTA Walkway.

It will be interesting to see how the dance group will work the suit that is supposedly quite rough and tough. 

French Human Horses

If a fashion exhibition and dancing is not your jam, perhaps you can indulge in a bit of sci-fi. And, can watch galloping French dancers dressed as horses. Literally!

The French group Compagnie des Quidams is putting on a show called FierS a Cheval. In it, they'll dress up as sci-fi horses and enthrall the audience with their performance on between August 23rd and 25th from National Museum of Singapore to the SMU Campus Green.

Live-Action Arcade Game  

Between August 24th and 25th, at the SMU School of Infosystems you can also check out a live-action arcade game. Pro-wrestling group called Grapplers Max will put on display a fashionable fight between 8 pm and 10 pm at the venue.

And you can watch them live dressed in characters from 90s arcade games and in the latest fashionable fad-- spandex! If you're lucky, you might even be able to spot your favourite character 

Drummers In Black 

Finally, you can also check out a local drummer's group called MOTUS as well as Spain's Deabru Beltzak. Both the groups are into dark music, so if you're into that don't miss their performances.

They are slated to drum it out between August 23rd and 25th, from 7.50 pm to 9.26 pm at the Cathay Green.  

Are you as excited as we are?
