‘Tis the season to buy some dresses, isn’t it? (And not just for the tykes!)
A friend recently turned me onto Saloni Rathor, a line of luxurious womenswear by designer Saloni Shrestha. Her F/W 2013 collection, The Passage, features ready-to-wear pieces that combine clean lines with sumptuous colors like claret plum, jade green and Persian blue. Her choice of fabrics is splendid—from Indian silks to Indonesian laces to Japanese cottons.

And if you are searching for local designers to wear this festive season, I highly recommend Travelshopa, a shopping search site that links buyers to multi-label boutiques, pop-up shops, and market stalls around the island. The site allows shoppers to sort by location (Holland Village or Marina Bay or Chinatown, e.g.) and item (bespoke, sale, maternity, e.g.). Utterly brilliant! Connect with Travelshopa on Facebook and follow on Twitter.
