Singapore Fashion Week: Singapore Designers

By Butterboom Writers  /  June 4, 2012

Featuring Pre-Spring 2013 Collections by MAE PANG, Dzojchen and Max.Tan.

MAE PANG

We arrived at one-part of Future Fashion Now, the final segment, in fact, where successful Singapore labels MAE PANG, Dzojchen and Max.Tan showcased their Pre-Spring 2013 Collections. Wondering what that title means? It’s actually a new, online initiative that allows you to pre-order unedited pieces directly off the runways and get them before they hit the stores or run out. So basically, you become your own fashion buyer (now, how cool is that!).

MAE PANG – Opening the show was MAE PANG, started by Pang Ai Mei who is a Central Saint Martins alum known for creating cutting-edge womenswear and modern designs, often in neon colours. Her new collection plays on textures, shapes and lines, but does away with brights this time and instead, sticks to a dark palette with just an occasional pop of highlighter blue and metallic sheen.

Dzojchen – Up next, model-turned-designer Chelsea Scott-Blackhall of denim label Dzojchen presented a classy, contemporary collection marked by clean lines and a minimalist aesthetic. The overall look is evidently low-key but the heavy use of black and leather gives the outfits a sleek, stylish slant. Its trademark curve outline on the inner thighs (which seemingly makes your legs go on forever) continues to adorn its jeans.

Max Tan – We were eager to see what Max Tan has dreamed up. After all, his eponymous line was the first Asian-based label ever to be invited to showcase at fashion convention Modefabriek in Amsterdam in 2010. Max.Tan elevated the mood with light monotones. Yes, there are androgynous cuts but there are also feminine touches like pleats, drapes and overlapping panels that act as perfect counterpoints.
