6 Stylish Pieces From Run After's Debut Collection | Clozette
A fashion line helmed by popular Singaporean fashion blogger, Melissa Celestine Koh, Run After's debut at the recent Digital Fashion Week was a highly anticipated one. Known for her feminine, luxe, and flowy looks, Melissa's style has been resonating with the fashion community in Singapore and around the world, as evidenced by her strong social media and blog following.



Inspired by the theme “Modern Romantic,” the debut Cruise 2016 collection features classic pieces that encapsulate femininity and structure, which in a way echoes Melissa's own style as evidenced by the mix of flowy, structured, and subtly printed pieces. Keeping to simple and relatable details, the collection also features detail work, from embroidery to appliques and prints.

If you're a fan of Melissa's style, you'll be glad to know that her debut collection is exclusively on Zalora Singapore! Here are some of our favourite pieces that we can see ourselves wearing day-to-day.

Sometimes, a bit of flow is just what we need to get through the day. And this flowy maxi skirt is definitely something for those who like a touch of dramatic twirl in their lives. See it in action in this Instagram post from Melissa.

Gathered Off-Shoulder Sleeve Dress

Modern off-shoulder pieces are feminine and sophisticated, a grown up take on the off-shoulder peasant tops from years ago. This piece in particular favours sleek lines and structure for an all-year round city-chic look.



Gathered Sleeve Dress

There's no better way to create a statement than with a bold structure. This black mini-dress in particular features bold and exaggerated sleeves that add shape to an otherwise standard LBD.



Checkered Carrot Pants



(Get It Here)


Move over culottes, because carrot pants are in! Loose at the top and slightly slimming down past the knees, the carrot pants are for those who want a slimmer silhouette without compromising comfort. 



Looped Strappy Back Dress

Sometimes, we just need to head back to the classics; and this black and white checkered strappy dress does just that. It's quaint, feminine, and simple. 



Tie-Back Side Slits Dress



(Get It Here)


For something that's long and flowy, yet easy to incorporate into every day style, then this slit dress is a definite must-have. Grey-toned and finished off with strappy back details and side-slits, it could be our next wear-anywhere type of dress.

If you are pretty zen about life – including your fashion choices – Ying The Label Spring/Summer 2016 collection is for you. Composed of simple dresses, flowy skirts, and intricate pleats set on simple yet gorgeous fabric, the first thing that comes to mind upon seeing her collection at the recent Digital Fashion Week is its understated elegance.



So to get the story behind the inspiration of her Spring/Summer 2016 collection, we got chatting with Ying, the Founder and Designer of Ying the Label, after the show.

--------------------------



First of all, congrats on the lovely collection. We noted that the fabrics of your pieces are really pretty, are they sourced locally or overseas or did you especially create them for the collection? 
 
I designed all my fabrics. So for this particular collection, like in the video, I painted them, then print them digitally. You will never see a similar fabric anywhere else again.



What was your inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2016 collection?

It was about individuality. I was inspired by how everyone is so different, but the amazing thing that we started off on a clean slate, and as we grow, we throw colours on it, forming an individual character, that is distinctive and unique.




We can only imagine the preparation behind your show. How did you prepare for the whole experience?

Well the prep work is a lot!!! From the designing of the print, to the painting, to the sketching of the entire collection, then sample making, fitting models, and the production of course.
