This National Day, the Editor-in-Chief reflects on the year that has passed, as she looks into the future and tells us why, no matter where she travels to or the length of time she spends abroad, Singapore will always be home for her and her family.
This year has been quite a good year for many Singapore fashion designers - collaborations with international companies, major sightings of designs on the international stage (The White House being one of them! woohoo!) and many other incredible achievements. To mark the nation's 51st birthday, THE FIFTH COLLECTION lists some of our favourite labels and the achievements they've made this year.
When it comes to expressing your patriotism this August 9th, you don't have to don the standard red-and-white colours. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but for those of us who want to do it in a more subtle way, nothing says that more than showing your support for the Singapore fashion industry.
