These Are The Stylish Fans Of Local Designers To Know

Who better to show off – and help rally support for – Singapore's growing crop of directional fashion designers than their most loyal and equally fashion-forward fans?

Who’s Mira: Independent fashion publicist, consultant, stylist, and designer in her own right – she has her own eponymous millinery that’s an insider favourite for its sculptural hats, such as the one she sports here. The 26-year-old is also a producer and is currently working on a runway show for the Singapore Week of Innovation & Technology – a first-time event by the National Research Foundation happening next month.

What you need to know about Seah: One of our best-kept secrets, the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts alumnus has been dreaming up pretty, occasion-worthy origami-esque dresses and separates for private customers since graduating in 2015 (e-mail syxlisa@gmail.com for enquiries). Plans are underway to launch her eponymous label officially early next year.

Mira on Seah: “She effortlessly mixes elegance and experimentation, and likes to think of concepts that look simple, yet take a lot of time to plan and execute. Her clothes always look exciting, but are still wearable.”

Number of Seah’s designs that she owns:
“I have 10, including a top from her graduate collection that has exaggerated folds and was created using a beautiful traditional Canadian smocking technique.”

You’ll love Seah too…

“If you want to look like a lady with an edge.”
