Fashion Design Catwalk Events – The Catwalk is a unique team building event in Thailand or Singapore developed to enhance teamwork through creativity. You know you were destined to be a fashion designer when you spent most of your childhood making clothes for your Barbie dolls or Action Men and reading fashion magazines instead of playing with your friends and doing your work!
This is a great opportunity to create a stunning selection of clothes to your newly created top fashion brand label! If you want to be the next Yves Saint Laurent or Versace then this is the team building event for teams, that are completely and utterly obsessed with fashion!
We provide you with all the basic tools to create your Catwalk fashion show including front row tickets, designers (you), runway models (you), and of course all the necessary fashion, tailoring equipment. Delivered in 3 stages this would easily give a full day fun event.
Stage One – Bargain Shopping
Your event starts with haggling at numerous bargain shopping areas around the local area enhancing your team’s sales techniques. Whether you’re looking for Thai silks or hunting down a must-have trendy item, to dazzle your peers at your catwalk, you won’t be let down in with our designated locations! You also need to select your models who can be stage-ready in time to compete on the catwalk.
Stage Two – Create your Garments
Back at the workshop, your teams will begin to create some beautifully shaped garments from all the materials purchased on your shopping spree! Your aim is to create a new trend, a creative flair and a unique fashion perspective! Teams create their on-trend style for each of their models. Clothes, accessories, as well as hair and make-up, are all tied-in together to fashion a complete look that has model potential both on stage and for a fun photo shoot. Advice is offered to help create a professional edge.
Stage Three – Preparation and Practice
Preparation, practice and teamwork are put to the test with rehearsals. Teams advise models on how to walk, as well as how to come up with and deliver answers, to judges’ questions.
Stage Four – Showcase Your Brand
Showtime! Team efforts pay off as the models strut their stuff and interviewed by judges before the votes are cast for Mr & Miss Corporate Brand. The last stage of this fashion show also requires your teams to choreograph and stage your own unique catwalk fashion show complete with commentary, music and your very own selection of catwalk models! The shows will be as varied as the diverse collections presented by each team!
With no second chances, teams are challenged to work and bring all their skills together at the same time, using their individual and combined creativity and practical abilities in this professional models team building event.
Teams get visually creative by perfecting a model style to represent them on stage; someone who will walk and talk their way to success, with a panel of judges ready to crown the winners.
Catwalk Event Awards
With awards for the winners, each team is presented with a portfolio of their models’ photoshoots to see the full effect of their team efforts.
How to Start Your Clothing Brand
You need to ask yourself a few questions before you start. Think about who will want to wear your clothes, what makes them special, and what identity you want your brand to have. Your team needs to decide what kind of clothing line you’re going to offer. Collect data from your team and identify the market.
Decide on a niche, men’s, women’s, sports, outdoor, adventure, and who your potential clients will be. Don’t forget your brand name and logo!
Team Building Dress Up Ideas
There are no limits on the style, design or materials you would like to use for your fashion brand label. It could be a simple pair of denim to a skirt made of pasta! Showcase your clothing made of food and get to eat it afterwards! Create layers and add even more layers.
Other ideas could be plastic bags, sticky tape, tinfoil and just about anything your team can get their hands on.

A History of Fashion
It’s believed fashion design started in the 19th century by Charles Frederick Worth. He was the first to label sewn into the garments which he had created. During this period design houses began to hire the services of artists to help in the development of garments and patterns. Exclusively designed for individuals fashion was mostly known as ‘haute couture’.
It wasn’t until the mid-20th century that fashion garments began being mass-produced enabling people to buy clothes based on their choice of design.
Why is a Runway called a Catwalk
The name ‘catwalk’ comes from the way a female walks similar to a cat although the name dates back to 1885 meaning a “long, narrow footway,” – a narrow passage that one has to cross carefully, as a catwalk.
Runway Model Walks and Poses
The most important thing to remember is to stand up straight. Keep your eyes focused ahead of you and place one foot in front of the other walking with long strides. Swing your hips a little and let your arms hang keeping your hands relaxed. Could you be the next supermodel!
