Fashion is everywhere. It’s in your makeup, your accessories, your hair, in your furniture, in the clothes you wear, and so much more. But it’s especially present in films – with just one look you can immediately tell what period it’s set in, the characters’ social standing, and so on!

A film with good fashion makes watching it funner and more exciting because its exquisite collections of outfits look like walking works of art!

And since we love fashion, and we know you do too, we created a list of our favourite movies that every fashionista must watch!

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


The Devil Wears Prada (2006)



A movie staple in every fashionista’s list, The Devil Wears Prada offers a look into the life of working for a famous fashion magazine, and the outfits every one wears is as gorgeous and breathtaking as we thought it would be! 

Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961)



No fashion movie list is ever complete without Breakfast At Tiffany’s. This rom-com is famous for its glamorous ensembles such as Audrey Hepburn's classic little black dress, glitzy parties, and classic and elegant makeup looks!


Sex And The City (2008)



At the beginning of Sex And The City’s television show, the character of Carrie Bradshaw makes it clear that she lives and breathes fashion. So when the show became a movie, her outfits, plus those of her friends, became extra stylish and glamorous that you wouldn't be able to resist going gaga over them! 


Clueless (1995)



Watch Cher Horowitz navigate through boyfriends, betrayals, and more teenage problems while rocking some of the fiercest 90's outfits in Clueless! A must-watch if you love chokers, preppy fashion, brown lips, and a whole lot of grunge!


Factory Girl (2006)



Take a look inside the life of Andy Warhol’s first “superstar”, Edie Sedgwick, and watch as the film stylishly combines the mod era with the beatnik ways of Warhol’s “factory”. So if you like smoky eyes, thick black lashes, and A-line dresses, Factory Girl will be your new favourite film!

As opposed to permanent retail spaces, there is a reason for the rising popularity of pop-up retail spaces – this temporary retail environment creates opportunities for new brands. “Some spaces are too big for many of us to consider it a permanent space. The rental will drown SMEs, especially in the Singapore retail scene,” according to veteran fashion designer and W.E. founder Alfie Leong. “Pop-ups allow us to explore, provide a platform for small businesses, and build crowd for the landlords by cultivating awareness.”

Then, how were the brands chosen to showcase at the W.E. x Togetherly Pop-up? “My partners, Wendy and Germaine, worked closely together to curate and understand the brands. There were many factors that were considered. Some brands are really interesting and creative, but they lack a space to sell. Some brands are new and we feel that they have growth potential. Some have been in the trade for a long time, and when we unite these brands together, we create awareness for them.”



Eyewear brand, Visual Mass, at W.E. x Togetherly Pop-up

Looking to stock up on your accessories stash? There are Foundry And Co, Azen, Whimsy and Magic, and more. Want to get your beauty fix? Head to Love Organic, Basic Theory, FrankSkincare, and so on! Dying to level up on your hipster vibe? Visual Mass, The Way We Were, an art gallery by Art Front, and the likes are at your service. As for the home design savvy folks?
