The hansel Retro Spec party, Friday 19 March 2010.

A big THANK YOU to all those who came to The hansel Retro Spec party!

It was like a free and easy house party that lasted from 5pm all the way till 1am. I posted up alot of photos on The hansel Facebook Page so please take a look at them there! I had put up some behind-the-scenes snapshots of how we prepared for the show as well. Enjoy!

We're still giving the paper specs out at the shop so do drop by!

5 invites to The hansel Retro Spec party tomorrow, Friday 19 March 2010.

We've been quietly working on The hansel Retro Spec for some time now and we're having a private little celebratory party at the hansel shop tomorrow! Starts from 5pm and will probably continue till about 9ish, 10ish?

I am pleased to release 5 invites to the first 5 people who write to Linda at It's 1+1 so you can bring a buddy to the party!

The hansel Retro Spec is a mini show looking at the artworks used in hansel's collections for the past 6 years. We've got some special Retro Spec merchandise being shown tomorrow night too!

The party is generously sponsored by Heineken beer!

I hope to see you there! In the meantime, here are some behind-the-scene photos of our preparations.

hansel for Her World's 50th anniversary merchandise selling now

They are finally available!

Singapore's Her World magazine has set up The Her World Glass House - a pop-up shop located at Wisma Atria's outdoor atrium from 5-25 March (11am-9pm) where they are selling the hansel for Her World tees ($29.90 each) and matching tote bags ($39.90 each).

Every $5 from the sale of the items will be donated to UNIFEM Singapore.

I remember when I decided to pursue fashion design at age 12, I started buying my own Her World copies (didn't even share them with my mother!) and spent hours pouring over the fashion spreads, cutting up the pages and creating collages of my favourite styles.

At that age, I didn't read (and I doubt I would have understood much anyways!) the "adult women's topics" but saved those pages instead for other craft work like papier marche!

I remember Fann Wong appearing as a model in some fashion spreads and how I loved seeing Thomas Wee's gorgeous sketches featured in their articles.

So 22 years later, it's amazing to have been commissioned by Her World to design their 50th anniversary merchandise. :-)

I hope you get yours today!
