If you’re starting to feel like you’ve exhausted your retail options in Singapore, you’re in luck. Singapore’s most fabulous shopping extravaganza Boutique Fairs is back for its inaugural return and it promises to be even bigger than ever.
Mark your calendars: From 16-18 March, the Spring/Summer edition will house more than 200 independent and design-led labels. Not your run-of-the-mill store stores, you’ll be hard pressed to find them all under the same roof anywhere else, and in this case, they will come together at F1 Pit Building, which will span over 2 floors.
Expect unique products ranging from women’s and men’s fashion, and items such as handcrafted botanical soaps, eclectic furniture, to ethical childrenswear, toys and accessories. And, with over 80% of the featured vendors practicing socially conscious methods, you can rest assured that your money will be spent on a good cause.

Here’s just a few of the labels to look out for during the event, with style tips from our Associate Fashion News Editor Gerald Tan:
