Went to the Blueprint tent two Saturdays ago to check out the booths and fashion shows in the afternoon
Spotted these exquisite leaf pendants cast with 99.9% silver
by a most friendly elderly lady called Marilyn Tan >
She explained to me in great detail how she crafted them
and how each and every one is different.
You can contact her at [email protected]
Blurry pic = shaking from excitement

Bought a necklace (obviously!) at 50% off at SGD85
which i wore to the following shows that night.
Wish i could buy more but i really really have to control myself a bit for shopping in NYC and London >.<

Everyone who asked me how my trip to Singapore was got a super enthusiastic answer from me:
“Surprisingly… i think this was one of my best trips to Singapore! I think cos it had to do with fashion and ’twas my first time going to Singers for a fashion thing.”
It was a wonderful experience,
well-organised (as everything in Singapore is :p)
and seeing Singaporean designs just blew. me. away.
I think it was a GOOD THING i didn’t have much time to visit all their stores and booths,
else i’d be much poorer upon my return to KL.
Great job on the Asia Fashion Exchange
especially Audi Fashion Festival, Singapore.
And hope you’ll bring me down again next year
