Boutique & Vintage Shopping in Singapore

LOCAL FASHION TALENT

Singapore is listed as one of the leading shopping hubs in Asia, through securing and attracting many of the major coveted western brands and retailers – both luxury and high street it does well to cater for the shopaholic, retail loving, money spending individual. There is one thing however I find slightly lacking here and that is a depth in retailer choice, Singapore poorly caters to the more boutique kind of shopper; the vintage obsessed, the custom jewellery fiend, the new-age recycle and revamp fashionistas who regularly take an old vintage shirt and give it new life as a dress. There are no market stalls, minimal independent shops and I found that this type of shopping culture has yet to catch on in this country – probably due to its incredible wealth and obsession with luxury goods here.

All is not lost however as there are a few places you can pick up something a little more unique and less mainstream:
