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.1 Comment
Do you recall the previous “Tiers of Joy” collection designed by hansel that was inspired by the Nonya kueh? It was truly amazing how our local everyday food could be transformed into wearable prints.
Well, Jo Soh from hansel did it again this time round by integrating another local everyday sight into her latest fashion collection. And that source inspiration is none other than our HDB flats (i.e. Singapore’s public housing).Comment?
I attended the Future Fashion Now shows last week, which featured the Spring/Summer 2013 collections of several young, emerging designers from around the globe. Among the showcases of several avant-garde and contemporary collections, my favourite goes to the elegant reinvented cheongsam designs by homegrown Ong Shunmugam.

Remember my really colourful dress from Jessica Simpson which I associated with the local “kueh lapis sagu” or “gao teng kueh” (nine layered cake)?
Singaporean designer Jo Soh of hansel has recently launched a new collection that takes the cue (literally and figuratively) from this kueh kueh and it’s amazing how slices and slices of these kueh could actually make great pattern on dresses.

The 4th level of Tangs Orchard has been transformed to a local fashion haven for a week. Collections from local designers such as Chalk, Yumumu, Own Muse, Peter Kor and Hansel are available at Style Space on 4 (the fourth level of the departmental store) from now till 22nd May 2011. On Friday, there was a short fashion show to showcase designs from these local labels.
This year will be my first Chinese New Year spent in Singapore! I’ve already seen tons of red and gold decorations on the streets and inside homes, but why not try a different theme party this year? Make your CNY 2011 memorable by matching your outfit to your home. Not only is it the perfect time for some re-decoration, your guests over the holidays are sure to notice it too.
I’ve been inspired by local Singaporean fashion designers to create some themes for your new year’s festivities. Check them out below and have a great new year!
