Singapore based label Ong Shunmugam was founded by Priscilla Shunmugam, who won the Grand Award at the Design For Asia Awards 2013. Instead of seasonal collections, the label comes up with ready-to-wear collections annually and has an atelier shop space for custom designs.
It's all about Asia sourced fabrics and inspirations, delivered in high fashion style.
For modern classics we look to local blogger Velda Tan's newly formed Collate the Label, available for sale online and @ Tangs Orchard.
This former co-founder of local blogshop Love, Bonito has been receiving loads of publicity in the last 2 years, even participating in Singapore's Fashion Week regularly.
