At any point in time, all of us would have some aspirations in mind. Growing up, my dreams included – being a runway model, living in New York like Carrie Bradshaw, writing a heartwarming novel, producing an indie short film that has bossa nova tunes playing in the background… The list goes on and I have never attempted to fulfil any of them.

Today, as I live my life in sort of clockwork – with a regular 9-to-6 job and another regular after-6 life – I have almost forgotten about the dreams I had in those days.

Last week, Samsung launched a Dream Exchange programme that aims to inspire consumers to think about how technology can help improve their lives and enable them to do more. I was invited to take part in this and it got me thinking and rediscovering some of my ambitions that were shoved aside.

Everyone is invited to submit a dream and mention how a Samsung product could help them. Samsung will select 50 of these dreams to take a step to fulfilling them by gifting these selected winners with the Samsung product of their choice. Guess what my dream submission is?

There are a few reasons why this showcase at AFF deserves a lot of applauses.

First, this is Ong Shunmugam‘s first solo show at Audi Fashion Festival. In 2012, it was showcased at Future Fashion Now, and last year it was one-half of an local emerging designers showcase at AFF. It’s amazing how the designer and her collections has grown over the years.

Second, I was delighted to see Priscilla Shunmugam go back to Mandarin-inspired designs, with more imaginative interpretations of the cheongsam this year.

This design, in my opinion, is one of the highlights of the entire collection, named “From the Real to the Chimerical“. A clash of ethnic prints and retro chevron matched with a collision of feminine fit and architectural elements.

This was what I wore on the first day of Chinese New Year, otherwise known as “Spring Festival” as it marks the first day of the Lunar Calendar, and the first day of Spring season.

Nonetheless, the unique colours of the cheongsam dress is reminiscent of Autumn, don’t you think?

Having blogged about this topic for years, I have consolidated a shop list for cheongsam dresses here in Singapore to make shopping a lot easier.

Last weekend, I attended Topshop show at Digital Fashion Week, where the British high street label debuted their first ever Christmas collection on the runway. While the rest of the world were watching it on livestream, I got to experience the show live at Singapore’s National Design Centre!

I wore a cheongsam dress from Lark & Peony to this event. I felt that the eclectic prints is aligned with Topshop’s young and vibrant brand personality. I paired the dress with a pair of purple pumps and the gumball cosmetic case from LeSportSac x Dylan’s Candy Bar collection.

It has been a while since I posted an outfit. Where has all the time gone?

I recently learnt of a new online store -Our Bitsy Prints –  that sells contemporary cheongsam dresses. I wore this dress for a wedding last weekend and received a few compliments! It’s worth checking the store out I tell ya. I have been on the lookout for new designs ever since my first tailor-made one from Shanghai.

The Cheongsam (Qipao) is a traditional body-hugging one-piece dress worn by Chinese women. The typical cheongsam is characterised as form-fitting, accentuating the womanly figure. The mandarin collar shows off the slim neck, the snug fit at the arms, waist and hip shows off the curves of the women. Not to forget, the slits of the cheongsam expose a woman’s legs indistinctly when she walks.

In today’s not-so-perfect world, I have to credit Tong Tong for introducing the reinvented cheongsam, that makes cheongsam very wearable for all shapes and sizes. With that in mind, I trooped all the way to Shanghai’s Fabric Market (at Lu Jia Bang Lu) and tailor-made a dress like Tong Tong’s.


Dress: Tailor-made in Shanghai| Rose earrings: Shanghai| Bow clutch: ASOS| Patented sandals: Nine West

The fabric is satin with white stitchings. Workmanship was fantastic that I regretted not making more dresses!

I love how this dress is suitable for both work and play. It is comfortable, less restrictive and relevant without losing its traditional touch.
