Slowly but surely, Singapore's fashion names are gaining international fame

The recent Singaporean takeover of the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of Crazy Rich Asians saw a cause to celebrate local pride. Modern cheongsams by Ong Shunmugam, Choo Yilin's elegant jade jewellery, Ling Wu's exotic clutches and intricate handiwork from Time Taken To Made A Dress have been long loved by those at home; now, on a bigger stage (thanks for the love, South China Morning Post and Us Weekly) and longer red carpets (Crazy Rich Asians and Black Panther premieres, Emmys and Teen Choice Awards) the world finally has their eyes wide open.

For more Singaporean representation, follow @crazyrichasianswardrobe on Instagram to get the lowdown on the wardrobe credits and keep your eyes peeled in cinemas next week. The movie's all-Asian cast wears brands from this region — Singapore-based Aston Blake made Bernard Tai's (played by Jimmy O. Yang) jacquard groomsman jacket, Malaysia's Carven Ong is responsible tailored an embellished dress for Rachel Chu (played by Constance Wu), Dubai-based Pinoy couture designer Michael Cinco designed the yellow gown Princess Intan (played by Kris Aquino) wears to the wedding, bespoke jeweller Carnet from Hong Kong, and Shanghai's Shiatzy Chen created the regal gold embroidered shawl worn by Nick's grandmother Su Yi (played by Lisa Lu).
