Max Tan

Director and Fashion Designer

Max Tan started his eponymous label MAX.TAN on the back of the recognition he received at the Singapore Fashion Designers Contest in 2007 and began with creating capsule collections to meet the increasing interest for his designs. The label made its full-fledged debut with the S/S 2010 collection which was featured as one of the top ten collections globally on premier trend forecasting report, alongside with fashion powerhouses such as Alexander McQueen and Valentino.

MAX.TAN was invited to showcase at Modefabriek in Amsterdam in 2010 and became the first Asian-based label ever to do so. The A/W 2010-11, collection which debuted in Amsterdam, was subsequently featured by Vogue Paris and went on to win second place at that year's China Fashion Creation Contest. More recently, Vogue Italia also featured Max as a finalist in the inaugural Dubai edition of "Who is On Next?". Today, MAX.TAN is represented by Boon showroom (Paris) where it has started making inroads onto the international fashion design scene.

Over the past decade, Tan has been recognised for his innovative designs that challenge fashion trends while incorporating his Asian roots. Apart from designing for his label, Tan also lectures at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore) and enjoys partnering with different theatre groups in Singapore to design costumes for their key theatre productions.
