    national treasures. and more

    yupp so it's Singapore's 42nd National Day today and the celebration was fab!! i'm so proud to be a citizen and i couldnt be more; not with these 2 well known designers who put the lil' red dot on the map! ( in the world of fashion; tt's it=p)


    Ashley Isham

    He's left Singapore in 1995 to study fashion at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London.
    He was the official womenswear stylist the the 2004 Bafta and since then; he has dressed the likes of Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Keira Knightley, Mariah Carey and even Lady Zara Phillips ( who's actually related to the Princes of Wales; Their Royal Highness Prince William and Harry!)

    What's there NOT to be proud about such an awesome designer?!



    Andrew Gn
    (rhymes with "pen")

    He's moved to London when he was 18 and had too; enrolled in Central Saint Martins. Then, he was relocated to Paris; where he pursued his career and made history by being the 1st Asian Designer ever to be hired by French coutoure house, Pierre Balmian in 1998.
    Though he was sacked as his debut collection was met with much criticism, his solo collections had been extremely well received and Nicole Kidman and cosmetics heiress, Aerin lauder are actually some of his regulars!

    A guy who's famously turned Paris Hilton away when she asked for some FREE Andrew Gn's Clothes?!!! I say two thumbs-up!!!

    ***
    prior to the celebrations, went window shopping and i spotted these 2 fab clutches from Accessorize!



    i just love love the studs on this one!!! it's so pretty with just jeans, tshirt and heels!



    Need i say anymore?! the gems are so huge and eye catching! It'd be lovely on silvery white leather but i cant find it just now): it's such an evening bag but i would be so freakin tempted to bring it out in the day!!

    Accessorize just has the best itty bitty stuff!
    Thanks for passing!

    I never really thought that much about Andrew Gn (just another designer name to me) but this post has made him stand out to me a lot more now! I love the clothes! ;)

    Btw, ahem, you know those cruelty-free nude heels from charles & keith? Well, as the obsessed person I am (since I'm asian and have yellow-toned skin as well and I find it hard to look for nude shoes that don't come off horrible) I went on charlesandkeith.com and I found this beige pair: http://www.charleskeith.com/product_info.php?products_id=1218&CKid=6e091ac998e9d1fb099d59a10a275d24

    But they come off a lot darker & yellower than yours...tell me, are they one and the same?
