    Top 5 Designer Bag Brands you must have in 2018: Your new favourite cult bag brands

    The days of the affordable designer bag brands are here to stay! First there was Mansur Gavriel, which used their iconic bucket bag to launch their brand to cult status in 2013, and has since parlayed the online brand into a retail store and a ready-to-wear clothing collection. Now, there’s the ever-present Cult Gaia (and all it’s knock-offs) that keep popping up on your Instagram feeds. With a price point ranging from USD $128 to $300+ (the signature Ark bag is only USD$168), this brand plays in the space of a modern contemporary bag brand that appeals strongly to the Millenial generation by leveraging on social media.

    BEST OF SPRING 2013: PROENZA SCHOULER

    You can tell a Proenza Schouler design by its modern take on prints, textures and colours. This collection was no different. I loved that it became a ‘random’ mix of everything and still everything ties in so well. Loved the use of the digital print dresses at the end with the grommet details. The PS girl is always cool & modern.         Shop Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear here.

    BLUEPRINT EMPORIUM 2012 RECAP

                  Snaps from the Blueprint Emporium market event back in May! Booths from designers like Mae Pang, Timo Weiland, Jonathan Simkhai, Yeojin Bae, as well as pop-up stores by Nana & bird, Butter Factory’s Nightvision Online, Granny’s Day Out! Photos from their Facebook page. I didn’t manage to go, but it does look pretty cool! I hope they could possibly make this a regular market event, as they have the marketing to attract the crowds and push for a prominent & cool fashion shopping event in Singapore.

    BRIGHTSPOT 2012 & BEYOND

                Went to Brightspot Market in Jakarta for the weekend. It’s a huge bi-annual market full of booths selling items that are designed by Indonesian labels and mainly made locally as well. There was everything from denim to jewellery to women’s dresses to food. Great vibe & atmosphere that gave a really unique shopping experience. Reminded me of UNIQUE LA, or some of the market weeks at the Cal mart in Los Angeles. I suppose the closest we have here is MAAD which happens like every month at the Red Dot Museum, or some of the other ad hoc market events like Public Garden &…

    We did a little night photoshoot til 4am in the morning. Sore legs & just plain fatigue, being a model is no joke! Just the beginning – I’m working on the next collection right now, can’t wait to churn them out! I’ve got stacks of fabric cards & so want to include more designs, but trying my best to be practical & edit, edit, edit! I really wish I had more resources to make more clothing, but I am still a start up clothing line, and I have to start from somewhere!!
