Singapore Stories 2020: Inspired by the Local, Inspiring the Local!

Singapore Stories @ Design Orchard

Singapore Stories come alive at Design Orchard:

Singapore Stories 2020 is a fashion design competition that invites designers to draw inspiration from themes that are essentially Singapore. The talented designers then capture the essence and create a Singapore-inspired capsule collection in their design field, be it apparel or accessories.

For this year’s Singapore Stories, nine designers submitted their entries to Textile and Fashion Federation, and five were shortlisted as finalists to create their very own Singapore-inspired capsule. These finalists will be taking inspiration from the Past, Present, and Future of Singapore and their capsule will be unveiled in late October.

The Fashion Launch Event of Singapore Stories @ Design Orchard was held on 24th September 2020 with the launch of 5 thematic new window displays featuring the Singapore Stories finalists. The invitees were also offered an exclusive tour of the gallery exhibit as well as 15 local designer highlights such as LINGWU, GINLEE, Ying the Label, Minor Miracles and many more.

Here’s what shoppers can expect when they visit Orchard in October: 

  • New window displays & a gallery exhibit of local designer works – Semi-finalists and Finalists from Singapore Stories 2020.
  • A Singapore inspired Instagram wall for photo opportunities with geometric Peranakan-themed backdrop along with its paintings.
