    BEST LOOKS FROM FASHION WEEKS

    Think the scene outside of the fashion weeks was even better than the shows themselves this season. Cool it girls & fashion editors show us how to style up our looks with no fear! Lots of neon¬†brights & prints, huge envelope clutches, piles of chunky bracelet, ethnic details etcetc…These girls definitely have a headstart on Spring 2012! Mad for Kate! She is sooo cool!! Kate Lamphear, fashion editor for ELLE   Leelee Sobieski¬† & Alexa Chung in Proenza Schouler   Leigh Lezark, looking very elegant         source

    SUMMER IN THE CITY

Everywhere in the fashion district I saw shirtless workers hanging out in the shade, it was hard to imagine FW collections (with faux fur, suede & tweed fabrics) in that kind of weather. I ate a lot of ice cream, shopped til I almost missed my flight & discovered lots of lovely new accessories & ideas to bring back here, all in preparation for my next bazaar on 31st July at the Cathay building!

    Blueprint Singapore 2010

    Another event that I’m looking forward to is the Blueprint fashion trade show that showcases many local and international fashion labels such as Al & Alicia, Vice & Vanity, Greyhound, Yeojin Bae & KTZ. Taking place from 29 April – 1 May, the show will not only be for fashion buyers and other industry members, but will also be opened up to the public for a limited shopping event on the last day. The list of mainly local labels looks very promising, and I am pretty sure the shopping event will be full of fashion, music & tsk tsk, one or two of those “exclusive” fashion parties… Click here for…

    Audi Fashion Festival

    The Audi Fashion Festival 2010 in Singapore is coming up! 28 April – 2 May 2010 at the Tent@Orchard. Anchored by heavyweights such as DSquared & Roberto Cavalli who are coming here for the first time, it promises to be a week of high end glamour & fashion. I’m kind of disappointed that there is only 1 local label alldressedup that is showing, but on the line there is also the Samsung Designer Showcase that possibly has other local designers lined up, although there are no details yet. Head to Audi Fashion Festival for the schedule & more details.
