    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 &…

    ERIIN X LENOVO FASHION SHOW

    Cool, not-so pretentious fashion.. That’s what these girls at ERIIN are doing for their online store. Selling independent labels such as RBRTH, Al & Alicia, Kahlo and other Asian & Australian brands at pretty affordable prices, the ERIIN girls are bringing a little bit of easy fashion items to your doorstep! Definitely inspired to organize an event & to do more collaborations with other creatives! Holler!

    BLUEPRINT TRADESHOW 2012

    Went to Blueprint trade show to have a peek over the past week. Here are some shots from the fashion shows featuring local designer labels like SUNDAYS, Elohim & Possi-tilly-ty. The trade show was still very small, with a focus on Singapore & regional design labels. Price points were pretty high for retail, honestly, very nice to look at, but I wouldn’t spend that much money on accessories:( I didn’t have much a chance to check out the Blueprint Emporium sale event, but think that might have been a better call. & more fun! I’m not sure this tradeshow thing will really take off in Singapore, considering the market is…

    THE VINTAGE CORAL EFFECT

    Ooohhh… trying to decorate a space is pretty exciting for anybody I think. My inspiration lately has been this though – vintage silver-plated serving ware, glass, corals & wood… Kind of a mix of that earthy/baroque-y/industrial feel, but I love it! Yeah I know it can also be a little dark, but it’s still modern enough to exist in today’s world, as you can see from the pictures below. Enjoy!                 Images credit: Pinterest

    SHOPPING STREETS WE LOVE!

    Gosh, I don’t know how I got into this topic, but I was really researching places on where to shop in Bali & writing an email to a friend, and I thought about some of the awesome shopping streets that I’ve been to. I’ve really become less & less of a mall person because you get some really unique pieces at these independent boutiques on shopping streets. Not only is the shopping great, but the whole vibe of the street is very artsy, funky & laidback, which is exactly what I like. Like what we have on Haji Lane here in Singapore, there are some really funky & iconic shopping streets in…
