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:

guo-pei-1-1 guo-pei-1-2Decadent layers of embroidery made this an eye-catching ball gown for the runway. This is golden opulence at its best.

guo-pei-2

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!

guo-pei-3-1 guo-pei-3-2I 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!

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)
