FORT by Maison Ikkoku is a gastronomical treasure trove lavished with glittering cocktails and exquisite culinary delights that is celebrating its first year anniversary on 23rd July 2016 with a chic philanthropic approach.
We were blown away by FORT's opulent and affordable 12-course omakase priced at just $68++ per pax, and its delicious bespoke cocktails in our raving review here
. It is of our humble opinion that Fort is a brilliant-cut diamond shining bright with bursts of fire and ice among the abundance of gastrobars in Singapore, with paralleled service and delectable dishes and cocktails that can rival celebrity chefs and mixologists respectively.
It is hard to believe that FORT is just celebrating its first year anniversary especially with the innumerable reviews from Singaporean foodies praising it to high heavens, us included. FORT offers a unique gastronomical experience that captures your heart through your stomach, and it is only atypical of the wonderful folks behind FORT to celebrate its first birthday in style with a quintessential party befitting its unique charm and its dedication towards wowing its audience.
This Saturday, FORT is throwing an elegant birthday bash with a night of fashion by budding local talents and bespokes as community-based Singapore Fashion Runway makes its debut launch of corporate womenswear and menswear collection 2016 inspired by the suave Chef Ethan Leslie Leong (the mastermind behind Maison Ikkoku, world-renowned-award-winning mixologist, and an overall awesome dude).
Ethan Leslie Leong, known affectionately in the industry by his middle name “Leslie”, is the best mixologist in Asia, creator of the most expensive cocktail in Asia (World, by far) and owner of renowned Maison Ikkoku Cocktail Bar & FORT by Maison Ikkoku. A lifestyle and nightlife celebrity with refined taste buds, a man who is backed by uncountable credentials and accolades yet still humbly referring himself as a “Just a Bartender”, Ethan has always concerned himself with social related issues, taking time out to mentor and coach when schedule permits.
The exclusive Ladies & Mens' Corporate Collection is sewn together by the loving hands of our friends from the under-privileged community. FORT's crowd-pleasing bespoke cocktails and artfully crafted hor d'oeuvres will be served at the event while the runway show, consisting of 18 community brand ambassadors from Singapore Fashion Runway with its founder Eileen Yap, goes underway. Guests are invited to purchase from the exclusive collection to support local talents and contribute to a social cause.
After its first success in SG50, Singapore Fashion Runway is back again in 2016.This season, the sky is the limit as they strut their way across the unlikely catwalks of Singapore, uncovering the city’s unique fashion heartbeat through the vibrant and colorful expression of the people.
Singapore Fashion Runway reaches out to the less fortunate – the handicapped, the poor, the needy, and weave them into the fabric of society through its inclusive fashion outreach programs that connect everybody from all stratum of age and society. They incubate and groom undiscovered talent – from local aspiring fashion and accessories designers to models, sewing and handcraft artisans, photographers, marketers and event organizers.
