Day 1 Singapore Fashion Week
The biggest fashion event in town, Singapore Fashion Week opened on the evening of 26 October 2016 with Chinese haute couture designer, Guo Pei, showcasing her Spring/Summer 2016 Collection at the National Gallery Singapore. Extravagant gowns with detailed trimmings, embroidery and embellishments provided a show worthy of opening the festival.
My three favourite looks were:
Decadent layers of embroidery made this an eye-catching ball gown for the runway. This is golden opulence at its best.
Feminine florals with a twist of glamour and subtle embellishments, this was one of the most wearable dresses of the collection. A piece that any mama can easily have in her wardrobe, ready to be brought out for that special occasion!
I loved this mermaid-style crystal gown as it made its way down the runway in a zig-zag fashion. One can only dream of owning such an elegant dress one day!

After the Guo Pei fashion show, I had the pleasure of attending the Swarovski party at the rooftop bar, Smoke & Mirrors, also located at the National Gallery. For Day 1 of SFW, I wore a dress by Australian designers, Bec and Bridge which I paired with vintage Chanel necklace and YSL tribute heels. A very comfortable ensemble as mama only enjoys dressing comfortably for nights out at events. (Pic credit: Thomas Su Photography)
