Has it only been five months since we had our Buro 24/7 Singapore launch lunch at the historic Clifford Pier? As the year edges to a close, we decided to throw one more party (certainly not our last), but this time around, at the first-ever Buro 24/7 pop-up store in Singapore. Yes, we've moved into our new home that's all at once a retail space, office, and production studio right in the heart of Orchard road.
For the next six months, our pop-up store will couple online content with retail exposure and play host to upcoming designers, private previews, as well as photo shoots and workshops. Ever wondered about the workings of a digital fashion portal? Drop by the store to catch a behind-the-scenes glance of our editorial team at work. There are also 64-inch Samsung TVs in the store to give you an up-to-the-minute view of our site.
Our launch party last evening, which saw over 120 guests including #FriendsofBuro, felt like a housewarming party of sorts. Guests settled down at the beautiful lounge set up by Taylor B, nibbled on canapés from Violet Oon Singapore, while a pop-up bar by Haig Club ensured that one and all were well watered with whisky cocktails.
There were those who went straight for dessert, licking up every last drop of ice cream from The Pint Society. With Nespresso coffee flowing freely, we saw a guest topping their shot of espresso with ice cream to form an affogato. Genius.
The party went on well into the night as our guest DJ kicked our dancing shoes into high gear. Guests also took the time to browse our fashion installation, featuring BOSS Womenswear outfits as seen in our photo shoot with Anita Kapoor. Guests were also given a $50 BOSS voucher when they took an Instagram photo with the BOSS Bespoke bag and tagged it with #BuroLovesBoss.
