I’ve never seen anything like this, and honestly, Singapore should have more of this.
The New Majestic Hotel was closing soon and its new tenant, Straits Clan, decided to turn the whole hotel into a never-before-seen food & craft fair.
In a hotel, you ask? Yes, absolutely.
I was so intrigued by the array of local and global start-ups – set up in each hotel room.
Here’s a room set up Matterprints (matterprints.com), a travel-inspired clothing brand with artisanal print. I think they’re so perfect for the adventurous at heart.
In the lobby, we were also greeted by a stunning display of greens – clearly designed by someone with a love of the natural world, and all the colours, shapes and textures in it. We marvelled at how it’s entirely possible to re-create a soothing tropical scene indoors. We followed the artist, @buy_a_bunch, on Instagram instantly.
One of the rooms housed local brand Time Taken To Make A Dress (timetakentomakeadress.com). I was first attracted to the deco and overflow of flowers, but upon a closer look, the wedding dresses were creative and different from the norm. They carry a certain attitude. Two dressmakers (I think they were in their twenties!) were busy in the corner with a new dress and I didn’t want to disturb them unnecessarily. Definitely a site worth checking out.
The next room we went into was clearly powered by creativity, where Kult (@kult3D) showcased its hyper pop personality. The trendy looks go for about $50-$100 and seem to be adapted from all sorts of graffiti and street art. Love it.
I loved every minute of it. Thank you for this memorable experience!
