Ring In The Great Singapore Sale 2019 With A Fashion Show | Clozette

It has been a whole 25 years since the Great Singapore Sale came into existence, and it will be back in town starting this weekend under a new avatar — GSS: Experience Singapore (GSS:ES)!


A flurry of exciting events in celebration of local lifestyle, fashion, culture, and art has been scheduled over the next five weeks, beginning with the Orchard Road Fashion Scramble this Friday, 21 June 2019.


Great Singapore Sale: TaFF Fashion Scramble

At 3PM, 300 dancers and models will take over Singapore’s premier shopping district with a traffic-stopping runway show curated by the Singapore Retail Association (SRA) and the Textile and Fashion Federation (TaFF), featuring designs by homegrown and international labels, including Ong Shunmugam, Qlothe, Matter, Beyond the Vines, H&M, Cos, and Zara.

Looking for a good spot to watch this one-of-a-kind fashion scramble? We recommend staking out Design Orchard, where you can also check out a vast array of locally designed apparel and lifestyle goods on the ground floor while waiting for the festivities to begin.


The Orchard Road Fashion Scramble will take place at the junction of Cairnhill Road & Orchard Road (Design Orchard, Robinsons the Heeren, Mandarin Gallery) at 3PM on Friday, 21 June 2019.

Before Paris Hilton and the Kardashians, there was Gloria Vanderbilt. Born in one of the wealthiest and most well-known families in America, Gloria can be considered a princess in her own right. Her personal life was narrated in newspaper headlines even at a young age. She was a prominent figure in high society back in her heyday during the 1940s until the '70s. Some even speculated that Truman Capote based Holly Golightly, the eccentric heroine of his novel Breakfast at Tiffany's, on her. But between all the partying and lavish spending, Gloria became more than just a socialite but also a notable fashion designer and style icon.



Her most iconic legacy is marketing and co-designing the Murjani Jeans for women, which in the mid-1970s was groundbreaking as most denim designs were cut to fit the male silhouette. After airing a catchy commercial, the jeans were an instant hit. By the 1980s, her denim line was a best-seller — even beating Calvin Klein at one point.


On 17 June 2019, Gloria Vanderbilt passed at age 95. To celebrate her contribution to fashion, we listed the top six timeless style tips that we can learn from this style icon's best looks. 


Cat eye glasses are always classy



No matter what era it is, cat eye glasses can give you that sassy yet classy flair. This versatile piece can also work with any outfit, from formal dresses to modern, casual looks.


Ruffles in the right places



Ruffles had their comeback moment last year, but Gloria Vanderbilt shows us that a little ruffle is always a welcome choice. Adding funky details to an elegant ensemble will always make it more interesting.


Maxi dresses with boat necklines are a classic



Want to sport a sexy and classy look? Go for Gloria's tried-and-tested formula: boat necklines matched with maxi hemlines. It's a timeless ensemble that can still work in 2019.


Chic statement jewellery works wonders



Sometimes, all you need is a set of chic statement jewellery to spice up your look. Even the most basic gowns can be transformed with the right accessory.



Mini shoulder pads can also look glam



Even though we also love the strong, oversized shoulder pads, we can't deny that there's a certain elegance in wearing the more subtle version. 


Turtlenecks will always be a staple



Sleek turtlenecks will always be a style staple that anyone can rock. You can pair them with jeans, slacks or even a pair of shorts and they will still look sophisticated.
