Back when this head-turner became the first Singaporean to snag a contract with #FordModels and captured the attention of major fashion editors and designers from Paris to New York. In the 1980s, Ethel Fong was one of Singapore’s biggest fashion exports. She walked the runways and modelled for the likes of Chanel and Dior. In 1986, this rare beauty went to a casting in Milan and met Giorgio Armani himself. The result: this international ad campaign for Armani which ran in all major fashion magazines around the world.
