SGFW ’15 HIGHLIGHTS
THE MAKING OF THE DRESS
This season’s IT dress that has got everyone talking – we delve between the seams and fabrics of this indispensable piece, right into the creation of COLLATE’s beloved double peplum knit dress. A glimpse into a woman’s wardrobe will have you find that a dress is an irreplaceable staple. Its versatility, fitting life’s many varied occasions, is the reason for its timeless appeal. WHEN IDEAS COME TO LIFE Inspirations, of all forms and shapes, make its way to the very first of sketches. The form, fit and flare are what make a seriously good dress, all of which are thoughtfully considered in the design. “Who are we designing for?”“It’s crucial for designers to keep this question in mind. This creates a channel for our creativity and helps us focus on what is important – the woman who is wearing the dress.” – Velda Tan, Creative Director OF FORMS AND FABRICS We go through swathes of fabric swatches, seeking the perfect one based on its weight, its hold, and how it feels on the skin. No expense is spared to ensure that we’re making a dress that will last you through the ages. The resulting design is one that balances a clean, simple silhouette with the contours of the peplum’s ruffles. After firming up the design, silhouette, and fabric, off it goes to be delicately tailored by expert hands. A TWEAK HERE, AND A TUCK THERE Delivering quality is being precise about details that matter. Every care is put into ensuring the fit and functional elements, such as seams, stitches and zips, and making sure they are perfect before the dress is deemed complete. What is derived from this dedication is a well-made piece with clean aesthetics for the everyday woman who has a discerning eye for effortless elegance. UNVEILING A NEW CLASSIC The result: a luscious sea-foam green dress that is classic just as it is current. An essential in your wardrobe, one that you can make your own.
