Boutiques is back! Get ready for a one-stop shop for all your fashion, accessories and homeware needs this March, mama.
If you’re in dire need of a style overhaul, you’ve come to the right place. Boutique Fairs Singapore is back with a fashion-focused selection of vendors later this month, with exclusive and unique finds from 150 independent local and international brands.
Known for launching emerging brands in Singapore, this edition of the Boutique Fairs will see many collections from newcomers like modern bohemian apparel line KALAIA Label, Parisian label Lespard, handmade espadrilles and swimwear line Cote and Badt, resort wear brand Aquariva and French swimwear label Systrer. Of course you’ll also want to check out beloved homegrown jewellery lines Carrie K., By Invite Only and jeweller WoonHung!
Bringing fresh Australian homewares to the fair is popular interior stylist Hong Henwood of Affordable Style Files, which exclusively carries leading Melbourne line Art Club Concept, Byron Bay Hanging Chairs, and Instagram favourite Pop & Scott ceramic plant pots. Those shopping for children’s home accessories can look toward a variety of vendors with European-inspired collections, soft furnishings, and bedding.
Family takes centrestage on Saturday, and besides the huge offering of kids apparel (like the kids swimsuit label Frolik), expect a dedicated play area from Sassy Mama fave, The Children’s Showcase. For your precious princesses, treat them to an express manicure using organic, kid-friendly polish from The Nail Social!
Don’t worry about shopping on an empty stomach, mamas! Light bites by the Cedele Group, coffee by Workspace Espresso Bar, and wine and champagne by Pop Up Wine are all ready to go while you browse. A large lounge area designed by styling firm Make Room will be available for you while you munch, allowing you to be close to your little ones while they play. Nearby, look out for a new art space comprising a mix of traditional and contemporary art to adorn your homes with, including ceramics, hand-painted vintage car art and contemporary panoramic photography.
While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the makeup workshops on Spring/Summer 2016 beauty trends with Singaporean makeup artist Cheryl Ow Hui, and a women-only wine tasting class organised by Pop Up Wine. More wine tasting workshops designed for both men and women will be held throughout the day, too, including a men-only Shiraz tasting and a fun blind wine tasting session for you to have some fun with the hubs. All wine tasting classes are $35 per person.
Here’s one more reason to turn up at Boutique Fairs Singapore next month, mamas: the shopping is guilt-free! Over 85% of the participating vendors are socially conscious businesses, and the fair remains dedicated to socially responsible practices by supporting eight local and regional charities, including the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME).
