You know you’ve made it in the fashion world when you open your first in-store retail outlet in the US at Bloomingdale’s flagship department store.

Arguably Singapore’s most successful fashion label in the international arena, Raoul has “arrived” with its latest expansion in New York. With over 70 fashion insiders attending the opening event, it must have been a very proud moment for label founder Douglas Benjamin (pictured below centre), the CEO of FJ Benjamin Singapore and co-creative director of Raoul.

Mr Benjamin was joined by actress Shay Mitchell (pictured above right) – from popular TV show Pretty Little Liars – and Victoria’s Secret model Christine Teigen (pictured above left) at the opening celebrations in New York’s iconic department store; check out the photos below.

This new outlet is Raoul’s first in-store retail outlet in America and bodes well for the brand that already has numerous outlets in the US, Europe and, of course, Asia. The brand is also regularly featured in top British fashion magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Elle and has been worn by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Viola Davis and Rebecca Romijn.

Now … doesn’t that make you feel proud to be Singaporean?
