From luxe street-style to timeless dresses, check out these Singapore fashion designers who’ve made it to the global stage. We’re so proud!
Equal parts smart and stylish, Max Tan’s designs are characteristically structured and geometric. If you’re looking for something minimalistic yet not simple, and multi-faceted yet not gawdy, this must be it.
Find his pieces Isetan Scotts, TANGS, and more. Fun fact: he’s got more stores carrying his designs overseas than he does in Singapore!
NEXT: Aijek →
Self-taught designer Danelle Woo’s label Aijek features versatile, timeless pieces to bring you from work to play, and from day to night. From splashes of colour in otherwise monochromatic pieces to unique, flattering silhouettes, we love the sense of playfulness injected into her elegant outfits.
NEXT: Stolen →
This local fashion brand has even participated in New York Fashion Week. Deservedly so – designer Elyn Wong can spin something as simple as a white shirt into a piece so stylish.
An exposed back, revealing one of the most elegant parts of the feminine body, is characteristic of a Stolen garment. Our hearts are stolen!
NEXT: Chi Chi Von Tang →
Trust the supermodel-turned-designer Lisa Crosswhite, the woman behind Chi Chi Von Tang, to know what it takes to make it on the runway – both walking on it, and designing for it. The Asian-inspired statement pieces are anything but shy – think bold cuts and rare fabrics.
Lisa also runs online fashion store Gnossem, which stocks more than 300 independent labels from around the world.

Motherhood hasn’t stopped jewellery designer Angie-Lai Tay from staying fashionable, and sharing her love for all things shiny with chic ladies all over the world.
Play up a simple outfit with one of her edgy pieces, or put on some armcandy as the finishing touch of an glam evening look.
NEXT: Nida Shay →
Designed by Abu Dhabi-born, Singapore-based designer Nida Tahir Shaheryar, she marries the rich craftsmanship derived from her Abu Dhabi and Pakistani heritage with modern silhouettes and easy-to-wear cuts suitable for the Singapore fashionista.
We love the intricate embroidery and embellishments – it’s as though every piece tells a story.
NEXT: Mashizan →
We’d love to walk in Mashizan Masjum’s shoes – his career in television journalism saw his works being featured on National Geographic and The History Channel, before he founded his eponymous shoe label – now featured in Singapore Fashion Week!
The shoes are made from the finest materials sourced from Italy as well as exquisite Swarovski elements. In them, we’ve got our best foot forward.
