This is what Rubin Singer posted on his Facebook Profile yesterday ...” This image has become the definitive & epic, nucleus of The Singer fashion DNA. It was realized by Alik Singer (my father & mentor) And his team in 1982. A very young and newly discovered IMAN enraptured the essence of Aliks work. The Legendary Somali model wears a dolman sleeved silk satin evening dress paired, with David Webb Fine Jewelry. The look was punctuated with a classic Walter Steiger black satin. I am so humbled & blessed to have this rich foundation and understanding of high fashion. Having inherited my father’s god given gift of the most passionate & unconventional approach to design. The 3rd generation legacy now continues. I am humbled and blessed to have such a visionary behind me, around me , and with me . This single photo epitomizes his vision of GLAMOUR, FASHION, REFINEMENT, and defines the HERITAGE of the SINGER DYNASTY’s and its COUTURE LEGACY…” RS
