30 HOURS OF SINGAPORE FASHION WEEK. EIGHT STEPS TO HELP YOU SURVIVE IT. HERE’S YOUR GUIDE TO HOW THEY’LL AMP UP YOUR EXPERIENCE OFF THE RUNWAY. BY CLARA HOW
YOUR SHOPPING FROM ZALORA ARRIVES
You had a last minute change of heart about your outfit yesterday, so it’s Zalora to the rescue (good thing you opted for next day delivery).
With its extensive range of items (Shoes! Bags! Accessories!), Zalora has you covered. You can even hit up the five designers from Fashion Futures 1.0 on the site (because everyone knows it’s best to don the clothes of the designer whose show you’re going to). Fashion Futures 1.0 is a mentoring programme where up-and-coming designers (names include Weekend Sundries and Ying The Label) get a chance to showcase their work at Fashion Week. Plus, you can get their current and upcoming collections fresh off the runway at Zalora.
STORE YOUR SPOILS IN THE LG STYLER
NOBODY WANTS TO ROLL UP AT THE BIGGEST FASHION EVENT OF THE YEAR LOOKING RUMPLED. DON’T TAKE CHANCES. PUT YOUR OUTFIT IN THE LG STYLER BEFORE BED - THE STEAM WITHIN THE CLOSET ELIMINATES WRINKLES AND UNWANTED SMELLS, AND EVEN SANITISES THE FABRIC.
PRESS YOUR OUTFIT WITH LAURASTAR
It’s ironing for dummies with the Laurastar Pulse iron. It has a one-size fits all temperature setting, which means there’s no need to fiddle with functions whether you’re ironing cotton or delicate chiffon. It also automatically releases bursts of dry steam (say goodbye to ugly, wet patches) that speedily remove wrinkles. Anything that cuts down ironing time gets a gold star in our books.
PACK A BOTTLE OF SAN PELLEGRINO
It’s important to stay hydrated when you’re on your feet all day, and that bottle of still Acqua Panna or San Pellegrino (sparkling or flavoured) in your handbag might just save you from a parched throat. San Pellegrino’s range of Sparkling Fruit Beverages (available in four flavours) is made with 16 to 20 per cent real fruit juice and contains no preservatives. Yummy and guilt-free – just the way we like it.
SNAP A SELFIE IN FRONT OF A PRINT LAB BACKDROP
IF YOU DON’T HAVE PHOTOS OF YOU POSING BY THE #SGFW SIGNAGE, WERE YOU REALLY THERE? BACKDROPS AND PHOTO WALLS ARE MANDATORY IN THE AGE OF INSTAGRAM, SO PRINT LAB HAS STEPPED UP TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
WIND DOWN WITH AN INTERCONTINENTAL STAYCAY
After hustling it at Fashion Week, kick off your heels and put your feet up in one of the 225 luxury guest rooms at InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay. Nothing says “relax” like snuggling into a down feather duvet in front of a big, flat-screen smart TV. Yes.
ENJOY A MEAL WITH PERRIER-JOUËT CHAMPAGNE
Everyone knows that a good tipple is key to a great meal, but if you aren’t sure how to select the best one, why not let the experts do it for you? The House of Perrier-Jouët has teamed up with some of Singapore’s best restaurants (think Tamarind Hill and The Kitchen at Bacchanalia, to name a few) to launch a series of champagne pairing dinners called Season of Gastronomy, which will run till June 2018. Tickets can be booked at its.
ENJOY A MIDNIGHT MAGNUM SNACK
CALORIES DON’T COUNT WHEN YOU’RE ON A STAYCATION. SO THROW THAT DIET OUT OF THE WINDOW AND BITE INTO A MAGNUM DOUBLE CHOCOLATE OR DOUBLE PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM. OR WHY NOT HAVE BOTH? YOU DESERVE IT.
