BLUEPRINT – See you there this weekend!

BLUEPRINT 2012 Emporium Campaign Image

Keep this weekend free because it’s BLUEPRINT and specifically BLUEPRINT Emporium to the public. BLUEPRINT gathers more than 180 emerging and established fashion labels in one venue for 4 days, out of which 2 days make up Blueprint Emporium where we can shop local and overseas emerging fashion labels, many of which are showing for the first time in Singapore.

Into its fourth edition this year, BLUEPRINT Tradeshow and Emporium will take place from 16 to 19 May at Fashion by the Bay at The Pit Building. Expect womenswear, menswear and accessory brands from Australia, Brazil, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, United States of America, United Kingdom and Vietnam. Singapore is also slated to host this year’s Asia Fashion Federation Conference, and six representing designers who are prominent names in their own countries will present their ready-to-wear collections at BLUEPRINT. The labels are Kaal E. Suktae (Korea), Christian Dada (Japan), Dieu Ahn (Vietnam), ISSUE (Thailand), Zou You (China) and Ong Shunmugam (Singapore).

We can’t wait!  See you there this weekend!

To shop and to support: BLUEPRINT

There are so many events this week we feel like we have to clone ourselves.  We’re going to miss ART HK and Singapore Arts Festival as we are focusing our energy on Asia Fashion Exchange and the highlight for local shoppers will be the BLUEPRINT.

If you are in the trade or a member of the press, BLUEPRINT is open today, showcasing Pre-Spring 2013 womenswear, menswear and accessories collections of asian and international emerging designers.  If you are not in trade but would like to update your wardrobe or support our local talents, BLUEPRINT is open to the public over the weekend.  Discover sample and sales merchandise and limited editions from 150 emerging designer labels and established and up-and-coming brands from around the world, most never before commercially available in Singapore.  There will be music, style workshops and beauty makeovers, ensuring that you stay occupied and entertained for a long time.

Here are two local labels that we like and support:

Local label poss-tilly-ty will be participating in this year’s BLUEPRINT and they are offering a 20% discount for their SS12 collection, as well as other surprises.

Our good friend, Sunny Lim, will also showcase his newly launched label Mils.  The silhouette is clean, contemporary and fresh and in every sense; deconstructed, reinvented and inspired.  For a very long time, we couldn’t find the middle ground for menswear but Mils has finally provided that for men.

Mils’ Cruise 13 collection explores the juxtaposition of translucent fabrics over paneled structures, the futuristic sensibility with performance fabrics and the identity of the modern man. It is Aldous Huxley‘s acclaimed novel, Brave New World that inspired these elements.

Other local brands who are participating are Carrie K, DEPRESSION, episene, evenodd, Ong Shunmugan and many more!

We will be there. Do drop by and show your support if you’re in Singapore!
