Now that the catwalk has been cleared, the last champagne sipped and the international jet set flown off to their next It location, we felt it was time to celebrate the breadth of talent showcased on our shores at Singapore Fashion Week 2015. This local production gained international kudos via a collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and international powerhouses Diane Von Fürstenberg (can somebody say #girlcrush?), Thakoon and Mrs. Beckham herself presenting their latest collections.
From the runway to your doorway, here we present our pick of the best e-shops to get the items that made it onto our SGFW lust-list:
Sometimes we ask ourselves, what would Diane do? This woman is a force to be reckoned with, not only did she invent the simultaneously flattering, versatile and sexy wrap dress which all women have to thank her for, she has used her business smarts and creativity to build a multi-million dollar empire. Formerly a Princess, she has built her own kingdom from the ground-up and now presides over the CFDA, supporting young designers and ensuring other women have a smoother path to the top by being involved in the #BanBossy initiative. Her illustrious life and fabulous air detract nothing from the sheer fact that her clothes are divine and trusted wardrobe friends, we only hope to have as much sass in our late 60s!

Another female powerhouse, Mrs. Beckham has silenced all the critics she had back when she quietly launched her eponymous label in 2008. The luxurious quality and sleek silhouettes of her pieces speak for themselves. Fresh from the runway, VB is offering Singaporeans first dibs and an exclusive chance to pre-order key show looks from her A/W’15 collection for a limited time only, free delivery included!

Australia’s name-to-know, Dion Lee, has become synonymous with sensuality, sculptural cuts and patterns inspired by nature through a microscopic lens. We loved his edited collection showcased at SGFW which subtracted the heavy bomber jackets used in the collection’s previous presentation to reflect the needs of local customer in this tropical and humid environment! The go-to label for a modern take on the female tuxedo and cocktail dresses that flow like water. Worldwide e-commerce outlets include DionLee.com, ShopBop, Matches fashion and Net-a-Porter:
