Ladies, if you haven’t bought your clothes for the upcoming Chinese New Year, why not upcycle and do some good while shopping? La Putri has curated preloved fashion collection featuring designer labels from the likes of Dries van Noten, Lanvin, Stella McCartney, Carven, DKNY and more. Be an advocate for sustainable fashion while you shop unique pieces from past seasons, but are now trending again.
Lovingly contributed by generous individuals, expect beautiful and flattering dresses, jackets, tops, bottoms and even fine silk scarves at a fraction of the price. Everything will go from between S$50 to S$100 – a real steal if you ask us! All proceeds will go towards supporting the children from The Business Times Budding Artists Fund and The Straits Times Pocket Money Fund.
This event has been organised by bespoke jewellery brand La Putri, which has various collections created with the modern woman in mind. Their artisans are particularly skilled at crafting versatile pieces that can be worn in multiple ways. Think brilliant brooches that double up as necklace pendants or earrings with interchangeable casings that take you from day to night effortlessly. In today’s world of disposable fast fashion, conscious fashion such as upcycling and versatile jewellery are inspiring ways to care for the earth.

“Sustainable fashion or increasingly termed ethical and slow fashion is a movement slowly sweeping through the nation, gaining momentum and traction, with multiple headlines addressing the topic in 2019. It is a time for sustainable style where we foresee an explosion of awareness and more conscious shoppers,” explains Goh Yig Li, who helms La Putri’s creative direction by harnessing their rich heritage with her wealth of expertise in the jewellery industry. As such, the brand is in support of upcycling fashion as it lets one flaunt one’s style without compromising on the health of the planet.
Exclusively on Sunday, 12 January 2020, enjoy 20% off La Putri’s jewellery too as you style your new finds together, with 10% of the purchase value donated in your name to the chosen charities.
