A Front-Row Fashion Experience: Ying The Label S/S 16 | Clozette
Editor’s note: We sent our ClozetteINSIDER Contributor Sarah Timbang to catch the Ying The Label S/S 2016 fashion show at Digital Fashion Week in Singapore. Here’s her Insider experience as she watched the show from the front row! 

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


The atmosphere outside Capitol Theater was a shock for someone who’s used to spending lazy Saturdays at home. This was such a welcome change given the vibe – everyone was dressed-up, made-up, and ready to take that moment on the red carpet laid outside the theatre as invited guests and the media filled the theatre to catch the S/S 2016 collection of Ying The Label. 


 
 
Upon entering the venue, I reminisced on those times when I would just watch fashion shows on TV. There were some confusion on the seating but I honestly wouldn’t mind seating way back or even standing near the crew, I was just too happy to be there.

It was also great to see style influencers whom I was just starting to know through their social media accounts but am already fan-girling from afar — well not really because I was just right across from them. Hooray for front row seats!


Scroll down to see some of my favourite pieces from the show!

 


With airy pattern and light fabric, this piece could be a summer favourite, spruced up with some chunky accessories.


 


Revealing but with just the right amount of skin, the back details still doesn’t take away the focal point from the hand painted pattern of the top.




For someone who has a flare for pieces that goes beyond the season, a pair of gorgeous white pants is a must have for that classic, all around look.




A personal favourite — with the intricate pattern of the skirt and embroidered design of the top, this is a great ensemble for a day-to-night look.




Simple and sleek with individuality as inspiration for the design, this dress tells us that one need not conform to the usual bold prints and colors of summer to standout. Simplicity is key.
