The Singapore Fashion Awards are coming up in a couple of weeks on November 18, 2016, and having scanned through the programme, we must say it looks to be an exciting time for all you fashion junkies out there.

Sadly, most of us tend to overlook Singapore-produced content. But this year, I think it’s high time we actually take a good look at and participate in bolstering the Singapore fashion scene. Chances are, you’re not going to be disappointed at the treasures you’ll discover!

Having said that, one of the most exciting things about the Singapore Fashion Awards this year is that for the Top 3 Most Popular Brands Awards, we the public will get to vote for who we think is worthy of the achievement. A shortlist of brands that are eligible for this award was compiled by the panel of expert judges for Singapore Fashion Awards 2016, and they are as follows:

  • By Invite Only

  • Beyond the Vines

  • Collate the Label

  • Eight Slate

  • Klarra

  • Love, Bonito


The brands will be showcased at Level 2 of Tangs’ Orchard Road flagship store at Tang Plaza, so we urge you to drop by to get a good feel of the different brands, especially if you aren’t familiar with them already. Voting will be open online from October 6 to 23, 2016 via

The impressive panel of judges includes personalities who’ve impacted the industry, like well-known local designer Thomas Wee; industry experts Tina Tan-Leo and Tjin Lee; digital influencer Andrea Chong; Sharon Lim and Niki Bruce (our very own editor-in-chief!); and Lynette Lee, the CEO of this year’s organiser, the Textile and Fashion Federation.


Oh yeah, one more thing: This year’s awards will be held at the National Gallery Singapore, which is the perfect venue for fashion events, don’t you think?
