Well, it just goes to show that the world is a very small place. One of Singapore’s newest fashion labels Chi Chi Von Tang has actually been spotted at the international fashion extravaganza that is the Met Ball.

Nicole Shanahan, who is the girlfriend of Google founder Sergey Brin, wore a bespoke version of Chi Chi Von Tang’s newest collection based on pop art, Japan and anime. Matching this year’s theme of “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”, the dress even had micro lights beaded into the lining of the dress so that it had a soft glow. Nicole added a headdress of light plastic wings to go with the overall look.

The complete ‘Anime Collection’ that Nicole wore will be unveiled during Singapore Fashion Week in October 2016, which you’ll be able to watch live on YouTube too ‒ very ‘Manus x Machina’ right?
