Urbanscapes is but a weekend away, and together with our friends at Levi’s®, we have something exciting planned. Here’s the lowdown on what you should be able to expect at the Levi’s® x TiC Hub.

The Levi’s® x TiC Hub was designed to be your home away from home for the duration of Urbanscapes 2012. We’re talking an air-conditioned oasis for you to relax, recharge your phones at various charging stations, and refill your water bottles at several dispensers – all while you browse through the latest season of Levi’s® apparel. And it doesn’t just stop at being a rest stop. We’re planning to treat and stir the senses.

We’ll be showcasing creations from four up-and-coming designers in an exhibit called CrossStitch. This includes Eddie Cheow, who draws inspirations from photography, graphic art and architecture for a 4-D designer experience; Julia Leong, whose designs exude femininity and its many layers; Lorenzo Peh, who won the Emerging Designer Award at the Mercedes-Benz STYLO Fashion Awards 2011; and Andy Yap, winner of the Emerging Designer Award at the Mercedes-Benz STYLO Fashion Awards in 2009. Each designer will showcase two personal creations alongside a re-designed denim piece.

Those with an eye for art, will be able to lend their flair to artists Nini Ramlan and James Ly from Minut Init Galeria as they work on large-scale murals over the weekend.

And zipping around festival grounds in an ATV, our Style Scouters will be on the lookout for Urbanscapes’ most fashionable – all of whom will stand a chance to bring home some seriously tempting prizes. Just make sure you follow @LevisMY and @tictweets on Twitter to find out how on the weekened itself.
