Hands up if you've spent precious minutes poring over Etsy in search for the perfect iron-on patches. And what about the craft denim date with girlfriends that never happened? Well, this weekend, pencil it in because here's your chance to get down to it once and for all. Starting today, personalisation services and patch packs are available smack in the hubbub of Orchard Road. Simply make your way down to:
Levi's Tailor Shop
When: 29 - 30 October, between 2:00pm to 5:00pm
Where: Ion Orchard, #B2-23
What: Denim whizz Levi's has tied up with the good folk at Tell Your Children for their personalisation service this time around. Without forking out an extra dime, simply drop $150 in a single receipt to get your choice denim customised on the house with iron-on patches or hand-painted initials and drawings. Stumped as to what you should adorn your denim with? Browse the pre-customised outers on display in-store and you might just strike inspiration.
When: From 28 October
Where: Ngee Ann City, #03-13C, 10:00am to 9:30pm
What: The multi-brand boutique purveying the French DNA — that is, je ne sais quoi — also has its hat in the personalisation game. Apropos to Parisian chic, pick up one of their handsome cashmere-blend coats designed by founder Ariane Zagury and receive five complimentary pin-on patches to dress up your outerwear. Available in sequinned and regular graphics (see above) as well as alphabets, Rue Madame's version is right up the alley of commitment phobes — all you have to do is rearrange the patches to switch up your look.
