Blazing into the local design scene, KEEPERS is Singapore’s largest-ever collective of local designers and artisans, displaying a diverse range of capabilities and craftsmanship to be found in Singapore. Spearheaded by the Textile and Fashion Federation of Singapore and Carolyn Kan of Carrie K, KEEPERS lays the first brick in building an environment where Singapore craftsmanship and independent design are valued and desired.
From now till 15 February 2015, the five-month retail showcase will be housed at a purpose-built temporary space in Orchard Green (at the junction of Cairnhill Road and Orchard Road), right in the heart of Singapore’s prime shopping locale.
Expect a compelling retail showcase as KEEPERS highlights some of Singapore’s finest design talent across multiple disciplines from furniture and fashion to food, architecture, homewares and even perfumes. Designers and artisans that have been handpicked for the showcase include those we’ve long kept on our radar such as hansel, Mandy Wu, DestiSaint and Heads of State Millinery, along with other stellar labels we’re excited to find out more about. (In Good Company, A.W.O.L., Dzojchen, Lingwu, Gnome and Bow, Code Deco, Supermama, Grafunkt and many more.)
As a special highlight, artisans-in-residence will be crafting their creations on site in a series of workshops and showcases that include perfume-sampling, tea appreciation, leather-crafting, designed to allow guests to gain an appreciation for the unique stories behind the designs and get a rare peek behind the scenes of the finished product.
With it’s convenient location and jam-packed schedule of delightful design-centric attractions, there’s no excuse not to drop by the KEEPERS pop-up!
KEEPERS is located at Orchard Green (Junction of Cairnhill Road & Orchard Road), Singapore. Open 11am – 10pm daily.
