This has been in the news lately:
Bid to turn Singapore into fashion hub
Oy! I don’t want to go into my whole spiel about how fashion encompasses a whole lifestyle & not just an industry, & that you need to encourage sharing of ideas & an open environment to nurture creative industries etc.
And compounded with our year-round tropical weather and the fact that we don’t really have much of a domestic industry anymore, i doubt we are poised to take over as Asia’s fashion hub anytime soon.
HOWEVER, there have also been a number of young local designers featured in the press recently & I have been taken with this particular one: ELOHIM by Sabrina Goh.
The designs, styling & overall look of the label are right up my alley. I love the edgy, structured cuts & the dark outlook! The styling in her photoshoots is definitely up to par with the fashion mags. You can definitely see that she had put a lot of thought into her whole collection. And last of all, the prices are really affordable, ranging from $39.90 – $200.90 for everything from knit tops to necklaces to jeans and dresses.
