Fashion Asia on Channel U

The 1st episode of the 30-minute programme Fashion Asia debutted last night on Channel U, hosted by Felicia Chin. She made a few short interviews with some young, local Singapore fashion designers who introduced their lines of designs and of course, their boutiques which I am sure to visit! In subsequent episodes, these designers will be travelling to a couple Asian cities (Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Taipei, etc.) together with some local artistes to introduce the latest fashion trends in the region. I am quite looking forward to the upcoming episodes.

I like the concept of "one design, multiple looks", transforming the very same piece of ready-to-wear into different styles. Desmond Yang, who owns the brand Abyzz, demonstrated how a simple-looking tote bag can be transformed into a skirt and an overall. Most importantly, not compromising the style and wearability!

Another two designers featured were the multi-award winning designer Alfie and Keith who owns the label MU and KOOPS respectively. There are a few pieces of dress from KOOPS that I would love to own!

Love the details of the bow and structured ruffles.

Up-fold / Down-fold of the collar creates a day and night look! I wish to have this to wear to work but prefer it in ivory though. This piece of Keith Png's creation looks much better than in this photo!

If you are also aware of the local show biz scene, perhaps you may be interested to know that Fann Wong's ROM gown is designed by Keith too!

Black Series of Classic Chanel and Miu Miu

I hope everyone had an enjoyable time in the last 1 month with all irresistible sales in town which is the reason to continue shopping! I also apologize to those that have been patiently awaiting my replies. If I have not attended to your emails, my memory must be failing me again after a long break. Feel free to drop me another email!

Recently I have received a number of emails enquiring about the classic pieces (which I haven't got the time to reply yet!!) So now, to compensate for all the missing-in-action in the past 1 month, I'd like to present the 3 classic pieces in the timeless black, which were brought back in the most recent trip. Hope you find something you like. If you do, just contact me :)
