The Textile and Fashion Federation (TaFF) Singapore and The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) have partnered to present The Museum Collection, a first-of-its-kind collaborative retail initiative featuring home-grown and Singapore-based designers.
The collaborative opportunity is open to TaFF members, who sent in design proposals for their capsule collections inspired by conversations with and visits to ACM, says Leonard Augustine Choo, TaFF’s director of industry development and engagement.
Available to purchase in-store, the first iteration spotlights jewellery, with collections from five Singapore-based jewellery designers – Boheme SG, BP de Silva Jewellers, Marilyn Tan Jewellery, Pearly Lustre and State Property. The designs are sold exclusively at multi-label store Design Orchard till December 31.
Kennie Ting, director of ACM and Peranakan Museum, says: “ACM wishes to be part of the larger local fashion and creative community and ecosystem. We hope that our collection may be used as a resource for designers here, and that our rich pan-Asian, cross-cultural heritage may be the starting point for new explorations of what Singapore fashion and design could be.”
Ahead, a quick look at The Museum Collection.
