Prepare to delve into a world where fashion intertwines with the ethereal. This is TIRADOS – a name that will surely be on every fashion enthusiast’s lips following its mesmerizing debut at Digital Fashion Week. Helmed by the visionary Josh Tirados, this Singapore-based label is boldly redefining the boundaries of fashion, challenging the status quo with an evocative collection that simultaneously pushes boundaries and respects tradition.
TIRADOS’s debut collection, ‘ANINO’, is an atmospheric exploration of shadows and reflections – a testament to the designer’s deep-seated respect for non-violent resistance and his fascination with the Tagalog term “anino”. A remarkable 15-look collection, ANINO is partially crafted from deadstock fabrics, creating characters that resonate with a nostalgia for a bucolic past while maintaining an undeniable contemporary edge.
The runway show was nothing short of a theatrical spectacle. Housed in the Figment co-living shophouse in Geylang, the stage was set for an immersive experience that drew the audience into the world of TIRADOS. The show was supported by fellow Singapore-based concept label, An Asylum, making it a collaborative triumph.

It’s not just the clothes that demand attention – the storytelling within each garment. The brand embodies Josh Tirados’s belief in the transformative power of non-violent resistance and his dedication to creating art that speaks to the individual.
