Third capsule collection

September 1, 2008

Photographed by Stephanie Goh 
( GlossandGravel (site), Crimsoncream (blog) )
Styled by Cheryl Chan 
Hair by Cheryl Chan
Makeup by Stephanie Goh (Erica), Cheryl Chan (Zoey)
Models: Zoey Funnell, Erica Derrickson
Location: Stephanie's home studio
Concept & directions: Laila 'Rock.The.Trend.'

For this collection, it is moodier and more grown-up than the previous two. Basically, this is my real design aesthetics which is rather modernist. I also explored a little bit more on fabrics, take the chain-fringed skirt and fur-print satin for example. I like the idea of how special fabrics can bring out a simple versatile silhouette.

Feel free to drop me a comment or two, I love to hear all sorts of opinions. Close-ups, sizes, measurements are available in my ‘Design Gallery’ page and the prices range from S$42-S$89. Please contact me if you are interested in any items.

    The photography is superb, definitely like a magazine shoot.
    Make-up’s very high fashion, very “now”.

    And the subject, THOSE CLOTHES are amazing! I LOVE the organza trench! It’s very versatile, in fact I’m having a few idea how to style it with right now! Oh, and the experiment of different fabrics are also great! Like what Chrisss said, very chanel.

    What a creative and distinguished collection! I am so pleasantly suprised that this is only your third capsule, but it is definetely the very best. I love how there’s bits of every outfit that are translated to your own artistic creation from other designers. I absolutely love the shoot as well. So chic and looks like something from Vogue! Congrats on a job well done!!!

    i agree with juan you should start making menswear (not an entire collection just pieces)

    Hi everyone!

    Thank you so much for the sweet words and leaving me your opinions.

    And yes, gonna learn menswear soon 😉

    OMG, the shoots are amazing — the clothes, the editorial, the mood — everything is perfect.

    You’ve really outdone yourself!! Superb is the word.

    I must say wow! Big big big giant step up from the previous collection. The maturity is great!

    How did you finish the trench?.. Did you lock the edges or did you use a trim?

    Also big props on your motivation, you shoot those out as if they are nothing. I need such motivation

    This is absolutely fantastic. It reminds me a lot of Galliano Spring 07, but slightly edgier. This is absolutely different from your past collections; it’s more mature, it’s less colourful and so well-cut. I loved the pencil skirt and graphic top. I cannot believe how good it is. The styling is very urban, the photos came out great and the models you’ve chosen really embody the clothes. What I really like about it is that it is a very dark collection, but not a stereotyped dark.

    thanks again, for the very flattering comments 😀 !!!
    I’ll work even harder for my next one.
