Yes y’all, it’s Singapore’s like-Oscar Awards and pretty much the only star-struck red carpet 99% of Singapore’s motley collection of thespians will ever get to kiss and tread.

This spring, we welcome the launch of All Would Envy (AWE), a new and exciting online fashion store.
We love what LeAnn Nealz has done with Juicy Couture’s fashion sense. She’s like the cooler, more sophisticated older sister you never had that stepped in when you were a toddler trying on your first Paris Hilton look and went ‘NAHT’.
Remind me once again to get back my social life. Apparently, Bryanboy was in Singapore for a short two-day period beginning April 31 to have a lil’ fun in the sunny island. (We did not hear of any press events happening for him while he is here — or we just don’t know about it … Read more

Haute couture luminary, Guo Pei, needs no further introduction. Singapore has struck jackpot with as we managed to come close to her works twice on our tiny red dot this year; the “Ci” collection at Digital Fashion Week, and most recently, her “Legend of the Dragon” collection at Fide Fashion Week.

Understated elegance would be the 2 essential words to describe Coupé-cousu. The label was founded in 2008 with one goal in mind, designing clothes to suit the urbanite who is constantly on the move. In 2009, Coupé-cousu nominated as one of 25 young designer labels to participate in the inaugural Fashion Incubator Project spearheaded by TaFf, SPRING Singapore and Parco Singapore. With no formal training in fashion design, Alex Yeo and Xie Shangqian followed their love for menswear and began creating their first shirts.
Just last year, I reviewed Alexis Mabille’s designs for Women’s Fashion Week 2011. Noting that he allowed his creativity to flow unrestrained like the Nile, I likened him to a magician as he had the ability of transforming childhood fantasies into wearable garments. His passion for fashion was unmistakably infectious! This year, he was invited to showcase his Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 collection as part of French Couture Week 2012 where he envisioned women as jewels.
So marks the end of a fashion week that went back to the luxury of clothing, stripped bare of the Asian musical acts of its predecessor (although Tim Hwang did turn up one night).

Christopher Josse’s fashion journey began when he joined Louis Féraud as a design assistant. His namesake collection was created in 2003 and he has since been awarded the label of Grand Couturier in January 2011.

In his interview with Popspoken, he reveals that the imagery imprinted in his mind whilst studying Art does get subconsciously chanelled into his designs.

Popspoken’s globar radar has detected the exceptional RHLS label – brainchild of the indomitable, bi-winning duo from Brooklyn, NYC. Ruffeo Hearts Lil Snotty’s off-beat palette, unconventional silhouettes screams “Fresh!”. The intriguing, experimental feel of their apparel aims to fulfill a ‘deficit in design’ – and damn right they did, as exemplified by their eye-popping designs. RHLS sponsors Le1f, purveyor of individuality and rap beats which are mind-blowing and out of this world.. but that is an article that should be saved for another day.

Some things in life are an inevitable let-down. That new cafe that boasts the best Eggs Benedict but the yolks don’t run; the book that ends with a cliffhanger; that Salted Caramel Frappe from Starbucks; that nail colour that OPI said was “That’s Hot! Pink” but wasn’t; and the mother of all let-downs: ADAM LEVINE … Read more
